Meesapulimala In Munnar

Gurgling brooks, blooming rhododendrons and dazzling hillocks make Meesapulimala a natural paradise. This is South India’s second highest peak that is situated at a majestic height of 8724 feet above sea level. Literally meaning “ face of the tiger”, you can trek to the top of Meesapulimala after meandering your way around eight hills.

The trek to the top is a scenic delight with herds of wild elephants and mountain goats all around. There are Meesapulimala trek routes. One is through the red rhododendron forests of Rhodo Valley and the other is via the small village of Kurangini.

If you trek via Rhodo Valley, the trail is shorter and takes around 6-8 hours.  You can go on this trek no matter what age group you belong to as it just 8 kilometers and can be completed in a day itself.  Begin with a jeep trail till the base of the hill. Then start walking towards the first hill and once you reach the top, you will be able to see the beautiful Neelakurinji flowers all around.

After you descend this hill, start climbing the next peak and cross the Anayaironkal Lake. Sit for a minute here and take in the beauty of the land all around. Continue on your journey and climb all seven hills that are around the same height and are quite easy to climb. When you reach Meesapulimala Peak, you will also be able to enjoy a panoramic view of the Tamil Nadu and Kerala borders.

The descent from here is a little steep and you will have to walk through the shola forests for around 40 minutes. After a while, you will be able to spot the Kolukkumalai tea estates and can stop for a cup of tea. Proceed on a jeep till Suryanelli town.

The other route to Meesapulimala you can travel by is Kurangini which takes around 9 hours. This trek is also suited for all age groups and takes a little longer than the first as it is around 15 kilometers.

Start this trek from the small village of Kurangini and slowly the trail inclines towards the steep mountain. Make sure you carry water along with you as this can get a little exhausting. Keep trekking for 3 hours until you reach a peak that has a single pine tree. This path then zigzags around the mountain curves.

After a number of hairpin bends, the Kolukkumalai tea estates will come into view. Take a break and enjoy the splendid views of the green meadows and lush shola forests. Keep trekking till the tea estates which are a little exhausting as there is vegetation all around.

Once you pass these tea estates, you will come across a jeep trail and the trail ascends. Be careful as the trail now becomes narrower and takes you through the shola forests again. You will come across the final one kilometre trek to the top that is a little steep so tread carefully. Follow the same path back during the descent.

Meesapulimala trekking is one of the most famous activities of Munnar and it is a must try on your visit here! Make sure you trek to this beautiful Meesapulimala peak as you will get to view majestic tea gardens and misty forests. Enjoy the hilltop view and have a fun adventurous experience!

    • Trip to Munnar

      My first visit to southern India and chauffeur at our disposal was horrible with no understanding of family needs. He will just have his way throughout trying to save parking fees, some kilometres, driving rash, abusing other commuters and so on. Travel agent was nice but not adhering to service standards and commitments. Trip could have been better if the chauffeur was slightly compassionate. Kerala is beautiful at every bit, corner. This is actually a traveller's heaven and dream destination. Best places are Munnar, Thekkady and Allepey. Cochin to be avoided.

    • Trip to Munnar

      Hotels - Kovalam Hotel Ocean Bay was the bad experience. It was too unhygienic , unhygienic breakfast and washrooms , not good breakfast. Allepey Houseboat - House experience was worst. The only good part was our cook otherwise nothing was happening their. Firstly we were picked up late by 30 mins after waiting , cruise driver was so irresponsible he stopped the cruise at dot 5 PM and left for his home ,we hardly enjoyed cruise ride, TV was not working , washrooms were dirty, rooms were suffocating and stinking .In the morning we checked out early and have to pay auto charges on our own to have drop at the drivers pick up point as cruise driver was unavailable. Ideally drop should have been arranged by cruise team. As per the itinerary, we were supposed to have candle light dinner but no arrangements were done for it. We just spent one day their without any memories and enjoyment. Kochi, Munnar and Tekkady hotels were good and as per our expectations. We will rate them 4* as per the services and hospitality provided. Ocean Bay Resort will be rated as 2* and Butterfly Cruise which was arranged for us as 1*. Driver friendliness and proper guidance and support throughout the trip. He made our journey happening.

    • Trip to Munnar

      House boat is basic just basic even the honeymoon inclusions just sucks. Candle light dinner means they just keep one deepa with oil in middle of a room. Cake means they have got a plum cake from a normal bakery without a name or mention on it. So house boat is just an average experience but remaining hotels are good in ambience. Food is not so great in spice jungle it is just average. Should also mention about the driver assigned to us. He doesn't know itenarary, he doesn't know who will pay for him. This shows a bad co co ordination between driver, his representative and our holiday agent. I pushed him alot to make him drive to the places that are there in the plan. Overall it's just an average experience with travel triangle. Not so great. Could be definitely a better one if they handled it in a better manner. Munnar is the best. Elephant camp in thekkady is also a memorable one. Jungle cruise is just time waste. Houseboat is new but not a great experience

      I had recently booked a family trip to Munnar from SK Holidays. Take my word, don't go by the number of reviews they have or the rating they have. Just book with them. The officials are extremely helpful. Both Khushbu and Shobit have been very helpful in arranging and planning the entire trip very well. The package and quote they provide is the best compared to all other agents. Everything was arranged perfectly. Definitely allow SK Holidays to plan your trip. They are too good. Thanks again to Khushbu and Shobit :)

    FAQ's of Munnar

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    Some adventurous activities tourists can opt for in Meesapulimala include trekking and hiking.Trekking should be avoided during monsoon season as it could be very slippery and it would be difficult climbing uphill or going down the slope. You can also try speed boating as well as horse riding.

    You can get permission to trek to Meesapulimala from the KFDC(Kerala Forest Development). There are plenty of accomodation options here and you can either book a cottage or tents depending on one's choice and budget. We recommend the sky cottage booking that can be done by KFDC. For a more budget-friendly option,choose the Base Camp accomodation. A houseboat stay is also a good option.

    Munnar and the Kolukkumalai tea estate lie near Meesapulimala and are great tourist hotspots that you can visit.
