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!

      All things were superb. Good hotels with good food. Houseboat was most amazing specially fish fry dish on boat. Services across all places were good n staff were helpful too. I would also like to specially mention our Driver – Rajeev ,such a humble person,he added more fun to the trip. His driving is safe, superb and even the small restaurants or stops that he took for breaks were good . He was extremely co-operative, understanding and was genuinely helping us (communication with local peoples at shops) with whatever we were expecting in our trip to Kerala. View of tea garden was awesome.. All things were superb. Good hotels with good food. Houseboat was most amazing specially fish fry dish on boat.

      There was lot of chasing done by travel triangle for this. Bookings were arranged well in time. Well coordinated by Mamta and Sanjeev. Was not knowing about this earlier...worth the money and time spent. Green woods resort Thekkady is a very good property suggested by you. Do not recommend India vacation houseboat to any of your guests ... No activity planned for the evening...they were not switching on the AC till 9pm...worst part of the trip...could have been better managed

    • Trip to Kerala

      The hotel in Cochin was not up to the mark. There was a strange smell in the whole hotel. Overall a nice trip, rest of all hotels were great. The driver was nice but one the first day, I expected us to cover some parts of munnar but except for spice garden nothing else was covered and we reached hotel at 3. No extra sites were covered even if we had time. Also in kumarkom also we reached our hotel at 3 after shikara ride. nothing else was covered. Although we enjoyed the stay at the hotel but since we had more time we could have covered other sites in kumarkom. munnar and kumarkom stay along with munnar's landscape.

      I had booked my kerala trip with Rasoone travels through Travel Triangle. Everything staring from pickup till the end of the trip was very well organised and executed. Thanks to Rasoone travels team for making my trip wonderful and memorable. Behaviour of cab driver throughout the trip was one of the important factor in making my trip more memorable. He took us to several places which were not even planned in itenirary and fully cooperated with us even when we got late due to kids.

    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.
