Eravikulam National Park Tourism & Travel Guide

This national park is the breathtaking home of a plethora of precious flora and fauna, and lies along the Western Ghats. Considered the magnum opus of Kerala, the park provides magnificent panoramic views of tea plantations and rolling hills blanketed in mist. The grasslands protect the endangered Nilgiri Tahr and harbour several other species of animals, birds and butterflies, including a new species of frog that was discovered recently. Eravikulam park becomes a sought after destination when the hill slopes get veiled by a carpet of blue, a miraculous phenomena caused by the flowering of Neelakurinji, which blooms only once in 12 years. Anamudi, translating to elephant's forehead and located within the park, is the highest peak of South India and its might and height of 8,842 ft can be enjoyed from a distance at Rajamala, from where the endangered Nilgiri Tahr can also be observed. The park provides a number of safaris for convenient and safe tourism around the park. The Kurinji Trail, which follows through misty tracks of protected animals and flowery grasslands, is a must for trekking lovers. Another famous but charming spot is the Lakkom Waterfalls, which provide an enchanting view along with an eco-shop cafeteria to eat at. Close to these falls is a log house, which offers comfortable accommodation with complimentary food and the much desired solitude and peace amidst the lap of nature.
Best time to visit Eravikulam National Park is from October to April

Our day started very early around 3.30 in morning and started journey with sleepy mind towards Kolukkumalai, highest tea plantation on the world.We heard about beauty of sunrises here and want to explore. The bumpy ride and roller coaster journey is enough to make you feel awake throughout the way. Remember you need to hire different jeep. If you don’t like bumpy rides, and having kids and old age people with you or spine problem, heart problem then, it’s better to avoid that part, because road condition is not good enough. Somehow, we reached, the place which is around 33 Km from Munnar and takes more than one hour to reach there. But once you reach this place aroma of freshly plucked tea leaves, gentle rolling tea gardensand floating clouds bowing down to kiss the misty mountain welcome you. We were lucky enough to see the sunrise. It was amazing sunrise in the peak of the mountain and you stand above the clouds. The organic tea plantation is amazing and we visited tea factory as well and as a tea lover I brought some packets of flavored tea. After an unforgettable experience, we were ready for another adventures point, Top station, again more than one hour journey. The journey up to the top station was twisted in every moment. At one twist we witnessed green fields of tea plants basking in the sunshine; and at another twist we saw mountain majestic mountains embellish with misty clouds. Tea gardens all around, at steep angles along the hill, the clouds climbing along the hills at great speed. We were lucky enough to see all the colors of nature in cloudy weather. Next and last destination was Kundala Lake, where we just walked on lakeside and enjoyed the weather. We came back to our resort and took the quick nap for while, packed our bag and hit the road for next destination Kumarakom. On the way we went paid spice garden, where our tourist guide showed the plantation of some spices and we also brought some of them. After 5 hours of sleepy journey we reached Kumarakom, we already booked homestay near the Vembanad Lake and fall asleep.
