"Scenic beauty" new review

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Today
Even though 65 steps to walk to the point location is very attractive. On the way to Echo point we can enjoy the Scenic beauty. We 7 member team visited this place on 12th April 2016. All are Sr. citizen except our niece and grand children. But all of them enjoyed the trip. The fee is very reasonable Rs. 25/- per Adult. Round about 34 km away fro Munnar town.

We got a rain hence we could not steps further where the cinema shooting was held. We have to park our vehicles one and half kilometer away from the destination. Very greenery hills will give mind blowing experience.

"Good one" new review

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
Very good place to enjoy with your family. Loved this place. At summer this waterfall doesn't have too much water and hence pulls less crowd. But that is advantage for peace lovers. One can take a bath as well. Bathroom and locker facilities are available. In monsoon the water level increases and it's not safe for bath anymore. Very good place for nature lovers and photographers too.

"Awesome place"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Its could be the best place in Munnar only if people stop shouting for the echo of their voice. Serene and calm lake with the huge vegetation behind makes this place a very special place for the nature lovers.

"Scream and shout to hear them back"

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Awesome place. Scream, shout make some noise and you can hear all those echos. It was wonderful experience. Calm and cool place. During day time also you can visit but visit the place during 5-6p, it would be awesome.

"Nothing special"

There is a lake surrounded by hills and a lot of shops selling everything from soaps to eatables. Cannot say if I found this place attractive. There is enough beauty in and around Munnar apart from this point.

"Nothing special just an ordinary place"

  • 2.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
It's just an ordinary place with lot of shops and nothing more. The only thing you can do is boating. Having no parking facilities, it might seem to be a busy place but not a place to spend a lot of time. Boating cost is 250 Rs but it can be found everywhere in Munnar at less cost.

"The name says it"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
I recommend going to this place when you visit Munnar especially if you are going with a bunch of people. I recommend going to this place as this place will look gorgeous in the early mornings. The echo experience is awesome and there are lot of shops for shopping.

There is boating facility available in this area as well. There are lot of restaurants also and you can really enjoy this place for 2 to 3 hours.

This place is on the way to Top Station and I recommend spending some time here on the way.

"No echo only name"

  • 4.5/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
You can give a flying visit and spend more time at speed boat at Mattupetty Dam. If you want to buy art and craft stuff it's a best place and many options and good bargain.
