“Visit to National Park”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

Huge crowd and big cue so much so that getting the ticket would be not less than 4 hours. Facility for tourist is good but requires patience to wait.

“Nilgiri Tahr and View”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

Its in western Ghats of the High Ranges of Idukki district and one of the places to visit, when you are in Munnar. This national park holds the largest population of the endangered Nilgiri Tahr and is main attraction of this place.
You can not take your vehicle inside the park area. There is a ticket counter at the base and you have to buy camera, bus & entry ticket from here. Queue is very long even on normal working days, so you can imagine the crowd on weekends.
Bus ride from ticket counter to main entry point of park is beautiful with tea gardens on both side. Incase if you are going during monsoon or just after monsoon then you will come across water falls on the way, which add to the beauty of the place.
You have to walk in to park from the point, where bus alights. At this point, there is museum with pictures & details of park. There is a small canteen and souvenir here.
There is narrow road leading inside the park. You can walk and explore the area for flora and fona though there is nothing much to say about it. You can spot Nilgiri Tahr, which is main attraction of this place. The view is very good from top and worth walking.

Imp: This place is very popular for the spectacular mass flowering of the shrub neelakurunji (Phlebophyllum kunthianum) which takes places on the these hillstakes place in cycles of the 12yrs. The next neelakurunji 'outburst' is due in the year 2018.

“A good walk !!!”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

This place is really beautiful.

You need to park your vehicle at the base and take the Park owned bus to the top. Busses leave as and when it is full. However, you need to reach the base as early as possible. The crowd gets large after 9:00 AM and the queue for the bus gets longer - especially during the holidays. If you can reach this place by 8:00 - 8:15, well and good.

The bus drops you at a specific level. From there, you need to walk up the road to the top. I did not go till the top. If you are lucky, you will spot the Nilgiri Tahr.

The views are stunning. You will have less haze in the early morning times.

Rest rooms and cafeteria is available at the place where the bus alights you.

A good place if you go in a group. You will need 2-3 hours if you want to visit this place.

Enjoy !!!
