About Top Station in Munnar

The Western Ghats in Kerala have been used for tea plantation since the British Raj. One of these heavenly places in God’s Own Country is Munnar. This hill station lies within the largest tea-growing region in South India. Located about 32 kilometres from Munnar in Idukki district, Top Station offers an expansive view of the spectacular Western Ghats. During the British Raj, Top Station in Munnar used to be a trans-shipment point to deliver tea by train to Madupatty and Munnar, and later by rope to Kottagudi. The place derives its name from being the highest railway station, at an altitude of 1700 m, in the Kundala Valley.

Top station is located on the Munnar-Kodaikkanal road in eastern Kerala. Hidden amidst lofty mountains and swirls of pale mists, this scenic spot is an ideal destination for planning a weekend or a romantic getaway in Kerala. Low-flying clouds, emerald green rolling hills, and a velvety carpet of tea make your holiday in Munnar truly memorable.

Besides tea estates, Neelakurinji flowers in a nearby sanctuary are one of the main reasons to visit the region. These flowers reach their bloom only once in 12 years making it one of the rarest sights for travellers. So, a visit to Munnar is absolutely incomplete without enjoying the beauty of the Western Ghats from Top Station. The destination also allows opportunities to travellers for photography, camping, and trekking in Munnar.

Top Station Munnar weather is usually misty and windy. So make sure to carry a light woollen jacket to avoid cold weather. Top Station Munnar camping is a great way to enjoy the company of your friends around a bonfire and stunning views of the hills.

    Patil's 5 days trip to Munnar

    Overall experience with the trip was nice, from bookings to return flight. Comfort destinations agent Robin was very helpful during this. Just Houseboat stay experience was not upto the mark this too I communicated to Robin and as per him all the deluxe boats are same, and one should book premium boat for a good houseboat stay experience. All the hotels are nice Pine Tree Munnar, Mountain Hues Thekkedy, Castle Rock Cochin. Driver was humble. One suggestion- In Cochin sight seeing there should be more option like a Museum visit. Thank You Comfort Destination for this wonderful trip. Four star for Hotel due to House boat stay experience else rest of the Hotels are good. Roaming on Allepy Road without cab..

    Nijasrireddy's 7 days trip to Munnar

    We enjoyed the trip It was good experience One thing you guys should take care of covering all the things and better to give advices to the tourist who doesn’t know much idea about the trip.My purposal is to suggest them good places to visit and let them know everything what to do and what not to do in the trip. In dreamland it was the best place for couples and also many others to enjoy adventure things.

    Kaushik Vankayala

    Bengaluru

    Kaushik's 3 days trip to Munnar

    I would say I had a underwhelming experience. To start off the driver took us to a marine drive which was total unworthy. We spent about 2000 for bull shit ride in a crappy back water. Straight forward point there are no visiting places worthy for tourists in Cochin. After that we went to Cherai beach which was a very nice experience. Later the next day the house boat was a pathetic one provided. The boat was not up to the expectation and nothing compared what the representative provided. I was very disheartened by the trip. Food provided was fairly good but did not have any enchanting experience over there. The last day we visited water falls at two places and the day was called an end. I had to chat for a while with the representative for arranging the drop at our desired location. My overall experience was bad and the trip cost was not worth what I experienced.

    Venky's 4 days trip to Munnar

    The deadline to order Dinner in all the hotels is very early. Need to extend it to atleast 10:30 - 11:00 PM as having dinner at 9:00 PM for travellers is not feasible. Hot water in bathroom was not proper hot for bath, upon asked we have been told that it is due to single phase electricity. Expecting very hot water in hotels in the places like Munnar where the climate is very cold..No varieties in breakfast in all the 3 hotels we visited, Idli Sambar & bread butter was common in all the 3 places. Was expecting Appam, Medu wada or any traditional Kerala items in breakfast.
