Eravikulam National Park In Munnar

Spread over around 97 square kilometers, the Eravikulam National Park in Munnar is one of Kerala’s most sought after tourist hotspots. When you visit this park, you can expect to find all kinds of flora and fauna, especially the rare and endangered Nilgiri Tahr. You may also be able to spot the rare Neelakurinji flowers, that bloom once in 12 years.

The park was established as a hunting preserve for the colonial planters and was co-owned by Rajamalai and Eravikulam. After the British rule, it was converted into a sanctuary to protect the Nilgiri Tahr.

Trek through the national park or go on a jeep safari to spot these beauties of nature whilst enjoying the grand views. You can also trek to Anamudi, which is much famed to be the highest peak of the Western Ghats.

To get a closer look at the endangered Nilgiri Tahr, trek through the Rajamalai Eravikulam National Park in Munnar. From here you can also relish breathtaking views of the rolling hills of Munnar as well as the Shola grasslands. You will have to pay the Eravikulam National Park entry fee of INR 90 for adults, and INR 65 for children of Indian nationality. For foreign nationals, the entry fee is INR 360. Also, remember that the Eravikulam National Park timings are from 7.30 am to 4 pm. The best time to visit Eravikulam National Park is September through November and April through June.

Eravikulam National Park safari can be arranged for visitors of all ages. Park visitors are picked in a group from 5th Mile on safari buses to visit Rajamala tourism zone of the national park. Private vehicles for wildlife safaris are not allowed in the park. One safari in Eravikulam for wildlife viewing lasts for 2 to 3 hours. Some regions in the park are accessible only via foot as the trails are too slippery and muddy. Wildlife safari tickets can be booked online in advance. Trekking in Eravikulam is also popular and the Kurunji trail is the most rewarding for visitors.

Go ahead and spot the Nilgiri Marten, small clawed otter, elephants, dusky striped squirrel, Nilgiri langur and ruddy mongoose, etc. Besides this, you can also spot flora such as Actinodaphne bourdilloni, Microtropis ramiflora, Pittosporum tetraspermium, Tripogen bromodes and Eulalia phaeothrix etc.
