Idukki is the brightest jewel in the crown of the Western Ghats. The most famous hill station in the Idukki district is Munnar. The queen of hills is known for its impeccable beauty, the unending vistas of tea estates, the rolling hills, the perennial waterfalls, and crystal-clear lakes. But there are many places around Munnar within the Idukki district which are equally breathtaking.
You can go Kayaking at the Anayirangal dam and watch the wild elephants in groups walking at the banks. You can also visit the Eravikulam national park to walk in the mystic mountains and spot the endangered Nilgiri Tahr. Visiting with children? Take a cruise in the Periyar lake of Thekkady to watch the wildlife, birds and if lucky, even the carnivores.
