"No echos though" new review

  • 4.00/7
  • Posted 5 days ago
This one is for people who are young at heart. Not recommended during monsoon. It is a view point but the path is a strenous climb down. Take plenty of drinking water. Not safe for children but good tourist spot to visit.

"A good Echo Point" new review

You have to go inside a Pine Forest to reach the Echo Point, mild trekking required. There is also a small tower, from where you can view the nearby valleys.

Nice place to go, boating is there, good scenery and shops are nearby. Monkeys will be there on road and above the shops. None of the shops have fridge as the temperature there is cool.

"Not a great place"

  • 4.00/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
The place is around 3 km from the Matupetty Dam. There is a river and a mountain and it is a valley so if you have to shout loudly to hear the echo of your voice. Entry fee is Rs 5. You have good shopping area which sells handicraft, you can bargain a good amount with the vendors. There is nothing much here and few people may feel waste of time as there are many more places to explore in Munnar.

It was our final year college trip we travelled to Munnar. We visited echo point, it was a great day. Echo point is located in the outskirts of Munnar. Echo point is near lake and there is horse riding and good shooting. Overall, its a good sight. One can visit this place during summer it will be a great fun :)

"Very good sightseeing place"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
The Echo Point is one of the beautiful tourist spots in Munnar. The point is beyond the Mattupetty Dam leading to incredible green river surrounding hills and trees. Everyone can easily reach the attraction, 2 minute photos by professional photographs are available. Not much food items are seen at the place. However, near to this point there is a shopping area with food and water.

"Lot of shopping spree!! excellent for photo shoot"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
We have visited Echo Point when we started in the morning but by the time we reached there it started raining. Though, it was very beautiful in rain where you will get hot coffee and tea with lot of snacks. It is a perfect shopping area when compared to all the points in Munnar. It is the best tourist attraction.
