12) Echo point and Boat ride
People usually come across Echo Point while making the trip to Top Station, the highest point (1700m) in Munnar, on the Munnar-Kodaikanal road. As the name suggests, this place is well known for its enthralling illustration of the phenomenon of echoing. Here the clouds seem like they are just an arm’slength away and one gets a brilliant view of the valley below. This is also a prime viewing spot for the Neelakurinji (Strobilantheskunthianus), flowers which bloom once every twelve years.
The unique beauty of the Echo Point marks the confluence of three mountain ranges, Mudrapuzha, Nallathanni, and Kundala
We saw near that place a wild elephant name "Pariyappa" as told by our driver. He had very long teeth and was looking really dangerous. also, we saw a group of elephants crossing the river/lake too.
The Echo Point will never fail to mesmerize you with its sheer beauty and stillness.
Boating charges: INR 300 (on lots of bargaining)
