Not worth after driving so much. It was just ordinary view like in any hill station. We were told from there villagers trek about 2 hours to a village and then they can take a bus to Theni.

It is quite a travel from Munnar 36kms on the hills which is very tiring with the traffic piling up at all the view points and dams on the way. We still chose to continue and it took us nearly 2 hours to reach the spot after lot of patience. After reaching the view points we had to walk down... More

Tea from Munnar was brought up to Top Station by the erstwhile monorail of the Kundala Valley Railway. This is a popular excursion from Munnar and... More
