Be it a natural or man-made wonder, these destinations have them all. From the Silent Valley View of Kodaikanal, to the Echo Point of Munnar, this trail has it all.
1. Lets start with the Mudumalai National Park near Coimbatore
Coimbatore is known as ‘the Manchester of India’ and is located on the banks of the Noyyal River. It is the gateway to some of the loveliest locations in our country. The Mudumalai National Park is home to diverse species of animals and has also been declared as a tiger reserve.
2. Kodaikanal if you really want to ‘chill’
Perched on a beautiful lake, Kodaikanal spreads up and down the hillsides with sudden bursts of shola forest. Kurinji Andavar, Bryant’s Park, Pillar’s Rock, Coaker’s Park, Green Valley View Point, Telescope House, Silent Valley View, Star Shaped Kodai Lake and Chettiar Park are amongst a few must visit places here.
3. The magnificent Munnar is absolutely picturesque
Munnar is South India’s largest tea-growing region, covered by lush green tea plantations, contoured and sculpted like ornamental hedges. A visit to the Photo Point, Elephant Arrival Spot, Shooting Spot and Echo Point is a must.
4. Don’t miss the Mattupetty Dam at Munnar
Just one day is not enough to witness the grandeur and beauty of Munnar. However, if you have just a single day in hand then do visit the Tea Museum, Nyayamakad Waterfalls, Anamudi View, Eravikulam National Park, Blossom Park, Pothamedu View, plantations of cardamom, coffee and pepper and Atukkad Waterfalls.
5. The trip is not complete without Kochi, the magical city
Kochi is mysterious, magical and diverse. Dutch and Portuguese heritage, temples and churches, art galleries, beautiful streets which depict a mix of Kerala and foreign architecture, the beaches and the theme parks are a huge hit amongst the travellers.
