We xpians, went on a short trip to Chinnar on 20th July 2015. though it was raining throughout, we could erect our tents in a mezmerizing location, very close to a short waterfall, amidst tea gardens. The forest authority won't permit lighting fire in the premises. So it is better to buy your food from the town. The Kanthallur -... More

The Forest department arranges for a trekking and allocates one watcher with us , if we go in a group and there is a fee to be paid for this. Once you are into the forest, if you are lucky enough you can see Elephants and Indian Gaurs passing through or grazing at some distance. After few hrs of walking... More

A unique dry forest due to its location in the rain shadow region. Trekking with the forest personnel is a must do and can be easily done from the checkpost. Saw wildlife like elephant, bison, serpent eagle, malabar giant squirrel. Treks are available to the scenic Thoovanam water falls. Avoid long weekends for a peaceful trek and carry drinking water....

We went for trekking in the forest with forest guards accompanied. We walked through the forests to reach a tip of the mountain to get an amazing view. This is a rain shadow forest. So most of the place seemed dry.

2hrs of jeep Journey you can see lot of elephants, deers , Bison's, rabbits etc. Try this trip in weekdays. because chinnar is found in the highway of udumalaipet and Munnar. SO traffic is less in weekdays you have a possibility to see more animals. Note: don't use torch.

You can easily see the Famous Nilgiri Mountain Goats. Though they are shy but sometimes they do the honors to give you a visit.

You can spot deers, lepoard, elephants. We spotted deers, elephants and peacock. 54 km away from Munnar. There is no hotel on the away and also at Chinnar wild life park. Lot of monkeys will trouble you at rest house so be careful of your belongings.

Chinnar located near Munnar is a great place for enjoying and understanding the hidden beauty of rain forest. It's an ideal location for trekking and if you lucky enough you will come across face-to-face moments with real wild animals, which will be a moment for the lifetime.
