At around 1,600m above sea level the hill station of Munnar (previously known as the High Range of Travancore) is one of the highest tea growing areas in the world. The landscape is dramatic with craggy rocks and neat manicured tea gardens. This is an area for walking and trekking and if your interest is wildlife then it is possible to visit Eravikulam National Park (just 14 km outside the town of Munnar) and Chinnar Wildlife Sanctuary (58 km away but quite a long journey due to the mountain roads). Please note: Eravikulam National Park is closed for much of January and February when the endangered Nilgiri Tahrs are breeding. If you are interested in serious walking (with or without camping), cycling or any other adventure sports then Munnar is where a lot of these activities take place. Talk to us and we can advise you what is currently available.
