Not many animals if you think you will see it. However, something unique about rock formation, if you are interested in geology.

Since now is the breeding season for nilgiri tahr, the park is close for tourist. The location is about 16 km from munnar town.

For visiting Eravikulam National Park, it is advised to go early, as rush increases with time. One has to stand in queue for getting tickets (Still camera is allowed, No handy Cam). They have mini-bus facility which ply from there up the hill. It has good frequency. It's around a 20-25 minutes ride till the entry point of park. From... More

An amazing view once at the top despite the mist, well worth the trip. One thing that could be greatly improved, the toilets, they're disgusting. It's a major tourist attraction so you'd think the management would sort this out.

I loved the hike up the mountain. It was a pretty easy walk and extremely picturesque. We saw lots of Nilgiri thars and shot lots of photos of them. I would recommend coming here to anyone who enjoys nature.

We spent 3 hrs in queue for ticket from 9.30am to 12.30..And after all this we get to see only Nilgiri thars. No other attractions as such.The whole day was wasted as we were only free by 3pm. Very frustrating.

The place is good and this is the only place where you can see and even touch the Nilgiri Thar's in the world. Most of the time you need to wait in long ques, need to spend a lot of time. I have heard many comments from many persons " what is this ?? it's just like a goat." It... More
