“Romance in the fog”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

The view point is a little bit far from the parking area,but the best time to visit is the evening when the clouds start ascending towards the hill. Pothamedu view point has an exquisite scenic beauty of acres-spread tea gardens and hill sides. When we reached there,visibility was quite low due to the fog. But the walk along with my husband for those 45 minutes was just unexplainable.It was so romantic to hold hands and walk on that narrow road towards the unknown destination.....return journey was a bit tiring,but we liked it very much and took many pictures. My advise is,go and explore the nature,see the greenery and get rejuvenated.

“One amongst many view points”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

All the drives around Munnar offer great views - some are specifically better and hence loads of tourists stop at these places.

But still a must see!

“The real valley view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Amazing view.You can see the tea estates for kilometers down. But the place is little crowded with street vendors occupying most of the places.

“Not worth”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

There are better places, which give you a much decent view than this place. Instead take the Devikulam road towards Periakanal falls, it has more picturesque locations.
