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.
Day 9: Explore floating bungalows in PoovarPoovar is a popular tourist place in the Trivandrum district of Kerala which is famous for its floating bungalows. Even we opted for the same reason. It was around 2 pm when we reached Poovar Island Resort reception. We thought we have reached the place as we got down the car but NO we haven't. It was still 4 km away and we got surprised. Now, here's the catch. Poovar Island Resort is built near the beach. So, the guide took us through boat and finally we reached our resort in another 25 min. Lush green environment, flowing water, amazing view, these were the words which can be used to describe that place.Specialty about Poovar Island Resort is the bungalows which are floating in the water and you will feel as if earthquake is coming. Yes, you heard it right. It was an amazing experience that will be for a lifetime. We enjoyed their traditional Kerala massage, indoor games, musical night and the food was too delicious that we were not ready to leave that place at all. We will definitely recommend this to everyone as this is one of the best place in India and everyone should visit.
