Top Valley Trekking in Munnar is one delightful and enriching trip that you certainly do not wish to miss while relaxing in the stunning mountain-scapes and cool climate of this beautiful hill-station located in the stunning state of Kerala.
We have to drive about 29 kilometers from Munnar towards Top Station through few of the major sightseeing spots of Munnar like Madupatty Dam, Echo-Point, Kundala Dam etc…, it could take 45 minutes to 01 hour drive to the starting point. The trek will start in the tea estate village will lead to tea plantation and to evergreen shola forest, mountain forest, grasslands, also we will trek on the ridges of Western Ghats Eastern Slope which offers spectacular view to low land of Tamil Nadu, the second highest peak in S. India, the highest tea estate in the World “Kolukkumalai” etc…, also this is one of the best trek to encounter some of the endemic birds and mammals of this region. This trek is always a guided program and duration is about 4 to 5 hours, hence one need to be prepared for that. During the wet months of the year from July to October this region has rain falls and a pair of leech socks and couple of sachets of salt is must to carry and plenty of water.
Travellers who opt to stay in Munnar or beyond Munnar needs to plan early because of the additional distance to reach Ellapetty where the trek begins from Tea plantations. Kindly make sure that you organize the trek with knowledge of the accommodation you stay so that they could suggest you approved and qualified guides to accompany you.
Our trek will start at the height of 1800 meters MSL (approx) and the highest point of the trek will be about 2250 meters MSL.
