There are no animals to see except goat after an hour of waiting in the Q. However the drive is very good and exciting. The view from top of mountain is also very scenic.

The highlight of the stay at Munnar, Eravikulam National Park is a must visit destination. The huge lines and waiting at the base perfectly illustrates why its such a popular destination for anyone visiting Munnar. We got to see a lot of Nilgais during the trek once the bus dropped us at the camp. Do visit.

Rajamala Located from 12 away from on the way chinnar. One of the main attractions in and around Munnar is the Eravikulam National Park; this park is famous for its endangered inhabitant - the Nilgiri Tahr. Spread over an area of 97 sq. km., this park is also home to several species of rare butterflies, animals and birds. A great place for trekking, the park offers a magnificent view of the tea plantations and also the rolling hills caressed by blankets of mists. The park becomes a hot destination when the hill slopes here get covered in a carpet of blue, resulting from the flowering of Neelakurinji. It is a plant endemic to this part of the Western Ghats which blooms once in twelve years. The last time it bloomed was in 2006.

Anaimudi being the highest peak in South India (8850 ft.) The whole park is composed of mounts, beautiful meadows and valleys. The park is originally meant to protect one of the rare species, Nilgiri Tahr. As per world report only 2000 Tahrs are alive on the earth in which 1000 Tahrs in this park. The local name for the Tahr is "Varai aadu". Another attraction of this park is Neelakurinji, one of the rarest flower on the earth known for its beauty and medicine importance. The Neelakurinji bloom only once in 12 years. The flowering season lasts for about one month. The whole area baths in the violet of the Kurinji flowers during this season. The Eravikulam National Park is of great ecological importance due to its very rich bio-diversity.

Can't image you go upto a national park and all you get to see is a rare species of goat - Nilgiri Tahr. Other than this, there is nothing to talk about. However, the view from the top is good
