This is the place that should not be missed. We went at 2:30 p.m on Sunday we avoided the morning crowd. We had to join the end of the line which was waiting for the tickets. After 45 minutes we got the tickets. The bus dropped us inside the national park. The drive itself was very nice. After that we... More

We visited this park with the help of our wonderful driver. He first obtained some tickets in Munnar. He was advised there that there was a long queue so better to go at midday rather than the 10.00 am start we were aiming for. He took us to the park entrance where a bus has to be taken 3 km...

Better book the ticket in advance or go early to the location. We arrived at the park entrance around 10AM, alot of people, waited for almost 2 hours in the queue just to buy the ticket. A waste of time! Anyway, a bus took us to the hill drop off point and walked to the park. You'll just see another... More

Visited this heavenlyly park in April 2015. This place is a sanctuary for the endangered mountain goat of South India, the Nilgiri Tahr (Hemitragus hylocrious). Magnificent view of the tea plantations and also of the rolling hills caressed by blankets of mist can be seen all around. The weather was perfect and the mountain goats could be seen relaxing with... More

Visiting Rajamalai National Park was on top of our list. We booked our cab from the Hotel and luckily got a very good driver who first took us to a separate booking office and got us ticket to visit the national park. He also told us that there is a very long queue to buy tickets at the national park.... More

Lots of open and relatively untouched nature. Tahrs came really close but people were a bit annoying. With a good zoom camera you can get really nice photos of tahrs also up on the cliffs. Lots of plants had signs and info. Photo exhibition in the info center was amazing. There was a long queue to the small buses that... More

Enjoyed the walk after the bus stop. Spotted the famous Nilgiri Tahr, they just roam around you innocently. Feels good to see them around !

Makes no sense to your munnar visit if you miss this place. Its a state managed park with a travel to the top at the provided vehicle with a ticket. Makes it more adorable if you make the visit during the second half of the day. Tip to the visit would be pay little extra with a advance booking at... More
