About Lock Heart Gap (Offbeat Attraction)

"Chill out with Hot Pakoras"

  • 3.5/7
  • Posted Aug 28, 2016
Nothing great about this viewpoint as you would have already seen some amazing viewpoints 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 omelette, maggi, bhel & steamed peanuts. A must stop place for foodies.

"Thrilling experience"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Apr 30, 2016
It is scary at the same time thrilling too. Is a narrow road with lots of twists and turns and breathtaking 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 :)

Lock heart gap is a cliff with a cloudy atmosphere; it is one of the ways to Munnar. View of tea plantation and mountains is breathtaking. You will rarely get to witness such mystic beauties.
