  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!

    Princy's 4 days trip to Munnar

    We planned for 4days 3 nights trip to Kerala with family members. The hotels arranged for the stay was really impressive. we even had delicious meals arranged by the hotel staffs. On the first day we stayed at North centre, Ernakulam the service was really good. Second day the house boat they promised was swapped for whatever that was available at the time which was bit disappointing yet we managed to have great time even though the service in houseboat was not pleasent. Staffs were not friendly. On the third day we stayed at Falcon crest resort where the service was extraordinary. Such a pleasant place to stay. We faced a few problems. The cab arranged for us initially met with an accident right before we started our journey so at the last minute our travel agent has to arrange whatever available. The itinerary given to us and the one given to our cab drivers differed in a way that our itinerary included sightseeing in vagamon in the package where as the one given to the cab drivers only talked about dropping us in the falcon crest resort and picking us up the next morning. So they demanded extra money to take us to sightseeing. We contacted our travel agent regarding this issue, he said he will sort it out i don't have to worry and he asked us not to pay extra so we promised the cab driver that this issue will be sorted out. So they took us to sightseeing we had a good day and the next day due to certain reasons ( i really have no idea what ) the travel that took 5 hrs usually according to the hotel incharge and cab drivers, took 7 hrs for us there was no traffic too the cab drivers spoiled our entire day on purpose we didn't get to go for any sightseeing still we didn't make a complaint and yet kept asking the travel agent if the issue regarding itinerary was sorted. Our travel agent said they spoke to concerned person and it's not necessary for us to pay any money. But this was not sorted out for the cab drivers or atleast according to them, they didn't receive any call regarding this. So they purposely made us to reach the railway station on the neck of the moment. Our return train was at 9.45 we reached the station at 9.15 and the driver started demanding for money. We contacted our travel agent and suddenly he was out of reach. We called him multiple times he didn't just pick up the call. Then we reached out the agency which provided cab driver. His response was not proper so we had to call another travel agent from namaskaram travels who finally picked up and said the same thing as said by my travel agent " dont worry mam you don't need to pay extra we will sort it out" so we made the travel agent to speak to the cab drivers but still they haven't sorted it out.. there was no time left and we had to leave if we had to catch the train so we spoke to both the travel agent and cab agency and left the drivers leaving the issue un solved. In the meantime the behavior of one of our drivers was not good. On the night they dropped us to falcon crest hotel they got drunk and passes mean comments on few our family members ( ladies ) and that one guy continued to follow them from the parking till outside of their rooms .. the men in our family stayed with them the whole night for protection...This was brought to our notice only at the end of our trip so we couldn't raise any complaint earlier. That driver's name as provided by travel agency is added below for reference. Driver: Mr. Nisar KL 41 H 1597 Mobile - 9745274646 Mobile - 9400184600 Kindly take this to your consideration and kindly do a BACKGROUND check on the drivers before allocating them. And i felt that the travel agents where not responsible enough. Even when they had enough time to sort the issue out they didn't. So kindly dont show this kind of behaviour to others. The only best thing about this trip was our stay at Falcon crest resort. The ambience and hospitality they provided was extraordinary.

    Hi Team, I would like to provide my views for this trip. All booking and everything by travel agent was perfect but the "Ayur Garden and Spa" disappointed us they even didn't greet us as per quote or not even by welcome drink after long journey. Similarly same hotel didn't have facilities of spa. Food quality is ok. Specially for this hotel i am rating it as 3. Since "Deshadhan hotel" in Varkala it's really awesome and really enjoyed. Pagoda resort was again ok and houseboat was good. All other sevices are really great and we enjoyed a lot. Thank you for everything.

    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.

    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. 

    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.
