Munnar Top Station | Mattupetty Dam | Kundala Dam


After spending a quality time in Great Escapes
Resort, we departed for local sightseeing in and around Munnar. A 40 min drive through the misty mountains
and the hills covered with tea plantations we reached Munnar main town. From there we took the Munnar –Top Station
highway and stopped at the KFDC floriculture centre. A Scenic botanical garden full of rare flowers,
succulents & other specimens. A variety of flowers and show plants are exhibited
here. Nice place to visit for the people who love
flowers. We then departed towards Top Station. While proceeding we stopped at a place called
Photo Point. A tea estate where tourist can be seen shooting
for a picture. Soon we arrived at Mattupetty dam. The huge reservoir is also known to be one
of the visiting grounds of elephants in this region. This place is called Echo Point, a Scenic spot
on a reservoir featuring an echo phenomenon. Just a few km from Echo Point we reached Kundala
Dam. It is a small arch dam and boating facilities
on the lake like pedal boats, shikkara boats and rowboats are available on rent to make
your trip more enjoyable. We then ascended towards top station. And this route is one of most beautiful one
and the mesmerizing scenic beauty is totally enjoyable. Finally, we reached Top Station. A few min hike is required to reach the view
point. And it’s a paid entry. Top Station, the highest point in Munnar elevated
at 1700m is 32 km from the main Munnar town and falls on the Kerala-Tamil Nadu border. Here you can enjoy the panoramic view of Western
Ghats and the valley of Theni district of Tamilnadu. The place is famous for the Neelakurinji flowers
which used to bloom once in twelve years. The bloom of these rare flowers will give
the destination a different bluish look. You can also visit the Kurinjimala sanctuary
very near to top Station. A major conservation habitat of the endangered
Neelakurinji flower. From Top Station, we then returned back. And on our way we visited the tea factory,
Here in this factory, they show the process of tea making. It’s a paid entry but cameras are not allowed
inside. You can also taste the tea here. And then we visited the store, they offer
a variety of tea, mostly are premium and high-quality teas. Therefore the price is way high compared to
the one available on the market. Finally, we reached Munnar and we began to
hunt for a hotel, and we were looking for a room with a balcony view. And at last, we found a decent one in Chitirapuram
called as Snowline Resort. And the balcony of this resort is perfect
to shoot timelapse. The backside of this hotel is where you can
enjoy the view. And having a scrumptious breakfast aside the
valley is a wonderful experience. That’s all in this part, watch the other
