  Trekking Places in Munnar

There are many trails to choose from, including Chokramudi, Idukki, Chummar, Kannan Devan Hills, Chithirapuram and Lakshmi Hill Trek. Though, the Lakshmi Hill Trek is the one of the best mountain trekking experiences. On this trek, you get to witness the South India’s highest peak – Anamudi while passing through the misty hills. Make sure you carry your trekking shoes, accessories and other essential equipment with you.

For adventure enthusiasts, the Kannan Devan Hills trek, which is a little challenging and takes you around 1950 meters above sea level is the best type of trek to indulge in. <readmore> On the other hand the Chummar, Idukki and Chokramudi trails are relatively easy and takes you across the Shola forests.

When it comes to trekking options in Munnar, there are plenty of places which not only catch the eye, but the soul too. Some of the best treks in the region are - 

Chokramudi - The Chokramudi trek is categorised into four types: Shola walk, steep climb, grass stroll, and dangerous terrain. The level of difficulty for amateurs is easy at the first level and then gradually gets challenging. Despite the increasing challenges, it provides a thrilling experience to trekkers, especially beginners because the journey is exciting and adventure awaits trekkers at every turn.

Idukki - If you are a nature lover, then this trek is perfect for you. It comprises a walk through the forest in the midst of the aesthetic hills. It is a 4-5 hour long trek which allows trekkers to experience the tea and cardamom plantations and the delightful sight of the plantations caresses the eyes of trekkers. 

Chummar - Trekkers will be able to experience the tea gardens and the pleasant grasslands as well as the Shola forest and will also be able to see the route of their trek covered with tea gardens all over the place. Chummar is a great trek for those who want to experience nature’s art. 

Mathikettan Shola Trek - For the adventure junkies, this trek boasts a thrilling experience as one navigates through the challenging route starting from Munnar. Along this trek, tourists experience the cool breeze of the cloud forests as they climb their way up. Tourists who wish to observe the serene beauty of nature and have fun must take a tour to this trek. 

Meesapulimala Trek - The route to Meesapulimala - one of the highest peaks in the region is through the Western Ghats. Throughout the trek, there are plenty of challenges that might entice a trekking enthusiast.

Of all the places, Meesapulimala is also a good area for trekking in Munnar as it offers scenic sights via both the Rhodo valley trail and the Kurangani trail. If you're looking for the best time to trek, opt for winter trekking, as this is the only time when you will not face any slippery trails or landslides. Irrespective of when you visit, make sure you carry a Munnar trekking map with you and make the most out of this experience during your Kerala trip!

    • Trip to Munnar

      Overall my experience to Kerala with family is a memorable. The customer service support is very good and prompt. The hotel at Munnar -White Myst is a resort on a hill lock with beautiful nature surrounding. However, the food and restaurant of the hotel is not good. The break fast included inthe package is disappointing and dinner also we don't have any choice nor there is a restaurant near by. The maintenance of the hotel is not good like lighting, swimming pool etc. The hotel at Thekkady is average and not having restaurant but near by hotels are available. The cab driver was bit hasty but customer support took good care as required. We missed boating trip to Periyar laje.House boat experience in Aleppy was good but we felt we should have engaged house boat for day cruise and could have covered one more day at Thekkady or Munnar or a trip to Guruvayur temple. The food for vegitarian is not upto the satisfaction Munnar visit and cruise in house biat at Alleppey

    • Trip to Munnar

      I travelled Kerala (Munnar/Thekkady/Alleppy/Athiapally/Kochi) in Oct 2019 with friends. Prebooking response was very good with Mr. Abdul (agent) from KING FOREST HOLIDAYS. He has suggested overall plan, resorts as per our requirement and we could close on the booking soon with them. Immediately after booking, agent informed us we are not getting rooms in one resort for which we agreed upon. This disappointed us as this should have been checked with hotels/resorts just before paying token amount. Later involved Travel Triangle and this issue was sorted out. Small thing but without involving traveller if this would have got sorted it would have been much better. We started our travel and overall experience if I want say, it was awesome, we were happy at the end. Positives: 1) Cab driver was very good/polite and good guide, not faced any issue. Cab cleanliness was maintained throughout the trip. Driver was always very punctual and excited to take us to places 2) Munnar resort provided was a very beautiful property 3) Houseboat experience was excellent, flawless, safe. Food was simple and delicious with varieties. The best stay. Should never miss houseboat experience in Alleppy 4) Mr. Abdul was taking our feedback every day and felt engaged/reliable Improvements Required: 1) In Munnar, the resort was far from the city which was ok as the resort was very good. Second half day, we spent in Wonder Vally Adventure park which was nice experience but after that driver took us to the next spot without telling us how much time it will take. It took almost 2.5 hrs and we were totally disappointed. Driver should keep telling these things as well so that we can decide if we want to go or not. 2) Same evening, with our first cab, faced a small accident (basically minor dashes from a vehicle behind), which damaged the car dicky. To sort out overall thing including FIR, it took ~3 hrs and then as heavy fog and traffic., we reached our resort very late. Lost that evening which we wanted to spend in the beautiful resort. Here, some alternate cab should have been arranged soon. We stay just 1-2 nights at some place and pay for that, so something to take care. 3) In Thekkady resort, room given was small but we got an upgrade and had nice stay there. Very polite Hotel Manager. 4) Food was ok ok in all resorts except Houseboat. 5) Kerala Massage suggested by cab driver was not at all good. They should know real good places to suggest as money spent was not small.

      Travel agent didn't provided proper details of trip and at the last moment he changes sequence of visiting the places, and because of that we had to waste 2 days of our holiday in Munnar. And when we discussed these with travel agent, there was zero support from them, ruining our last 2 days of vacation. Vagamon

    • Trip to Munnar

      We visited Kerala in the mid of October for our family trip. It was the right time to visit to Kerala. Weather was perfect. Little dizzling of rains everyday and start of winter. Short Details of trip - 14th to 17th October'19 (4D-3N) Kochi - Munnar - Alleppey - Kochi 2 days stay at Munnar Hills 1 day stay at Alleppey houseboat We booked our trip through Funday Travels. They have planned very nice and hassle free Kerala trip for us. Notable points of the trip - 1. Trip planner(Priyanka) - Priyanka was very helpful throughout the trip. I remember I called her number of times to get various information, multiple changes, inclusions/exclusions, budget discussion etc. But she was very calm and patient throughout the process and helped me to plan nice comfortable trip. 2. Special thanks to Amit as well. In Priyanka's absence, he helped us to get all requirements in time and there will not be any problem. Both Priyanka/Amit were in touch with us throughout the trip and taking follow ups everyday to make sure everything goes well. 3. Cab Driver(Unni) - Mr. Unni was very kind person. He was with us all four days and we really enjoyed his company. He guided us to various locations and also was sharing useful informations about Kerala while driving. Once again, Thank you Funday Travels and Travel Triangle for such a wonderful trip. Kerala was Amazing!

    • Trip to Munnar

      It was a nice and refreshing trip. Infact, tentative detailed itinerary and the hotels for stay were proposed by us. Only thing which could have made this trip better and which was missing during the entire trip was expert refinements in the itinerary and the hotels from the Travel Agent i.e. BookItForgeIt to make the trip better and more enjoyable. Cab services were good and the driver was well conversant with the topography of the area, the local rituals, culture and food of the area and he was good both in hindi and english speaking. Hotel at Munnar, The Fog Munnar, was an excellent choice but the hotel at Thekkady i.e. The Coffee Routes, though a very good property was a bit disappointing due to poor management and maintenance. This is my sincere rating. I am looking forward for another trip managed by BookItForgetIt but that time I would be expecting more expert inputs from them.

      Trip to Munnar and Kovalam was best in my view. Travel agent was excellent and cab driver was good too. Mr. Ranjan from Raisoone Travels, the travel agent always follow up with us regularly about the schedule. Special thanks to him. Entire ride was fabulous. We enjoy a lot of local Kerala food, loved banana pakoda too much. Overall Kerala is too beautiful, its really God's own country and you choose an expert to plan you trip, it will be like cherry on the cake..

      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.

    FAQ's of Munnar

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    Trekking in Munnar is an activity that can be enjoyed throughout the year. In the winter, it is quite cold and in the summer, the weather is pleasant. However, right after the monsoon season, the hill station looks more beautiful. You can plan your trip during a season, when the weather is exactly like what you are looking for.

    While what should be packed completely depends on the type of your trek, its duration, and the season, there are some things that you must carry along like a bottle of water, a torch, a rope, some nutrition bars, and a first aid kit.

    The different treks that are available in Munnar are the Idduki and Chummar treks, which are relatively easy and doable for mostly everyone. Whereas the Chithirapuram and Lakshmi Hill treks are moderately difficult, and the Chokramudi and Kannan Devan Hill treks are highly difficult.
