We had a tour guide for our trip to Eravikulam National Park. She made the process much easier for us. The bus ride to the beginning of the tourist walk was scenic in itself, as it passed by some tea plantations and factories. Once at the end of the bus trip, the rest of the journey, on foot, was via... More

There was a very long lineup to purchase the tickets and then added to another line to get on the bus to get to the mountain. We were very happy with the views, however were disappointed as there was much talk about wildlife. We saw 2 mountain goats. I would recommend it for the beautiful scenery, but would suggest going...

First of all, including this in your sightseeing list will consume most of the day. At entry point, only way to reach uphill till national park is to board their buses. Queues can be long to board the buses as they are small ones with limited capacity. I waited close to 1 hour. Buses take u 4kms uphill till the... More

It's a very good attraction, particularly if you are a nature lover. However the waiting time for the tickets and then for boarding the bus that takes you to the park is way too much. We noticed that those who had booked online just whizzed through all the queues...and saved hours. Go online if you want to go to Rajamalai!

This is a popular tourist spot, even for locals. The park service takes you up to the hills in shuttle buses. Make a reservation in Munnar so you don't have to wait on the long line! The landscape is breath-taking, and one usually see some of the rare tahrs. The short walk is beautiful.. Long wait to come down in... More

This is NOT what I expected from a National Park coming from the US. That said, here's what you need to know. Parking is at the bottom and that's where you buy tickets. Then you wait in a very long line to catch a bus 4 km up the mountain. Then there is a paved road that you walk up... More

We were taken here on a Sunday as part of a Kerala tour, it was absolutely manic, as it was a weekend it was packed with Indian tourists as well as other nationalities, I assume it would be much quieter on a weekday. It's a pretty place and a lovely walk but huge queues and long waits deterred from its... More

Its disappointing after reaching the peak in search of Nilgiri Tahrs. The time we went, we found one near the point where the Safari ends and its sister at the top after some 20 minutes of trek. Its better to spend more time on Mattupetty dam and Top view , as Top view also offers almost the same view.
