Chill out with Hot Pakoras

Nothing great about this view point as you would already seen some amazing view points before coming to this place during stay in Munnar. The best part about this point is for foodies & you get tea, coffee, steamed corn, roasted corn, hot pakoras, hot bread omlette, maggie, bhel & steamed peanuts. A must stop place for foodies.

Thrilling experience

It is scary at the same time thrilling too. Is a narrow road with lots of twists and turns and breath taking views. Narrow road near this point so you have to drive carefully. Even if you are an expert driver it is advisable to take a local experienced driver since the road is too dangerous for strangers. You can enjoy nice valley view from here. Anyway enjoyed this point :)
