HolidayIQ Reviewer Ria Das adds, “We crossed a small village with some shops and then soon we entered the beautiful tea estate. The spectacular view of the plantation amazed me. The sun was playing with the clouds and our jeep was playing and romancing the bends of the road uphill.”

HolidayIQ Reviewer ravi unni says, “Enroute to Munnar, we had magnificent views of valleys, gushing waterfalls and lush green tea gardens. The enjoyable part was impromptu breaks at waterfalls. ”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Arun Viswam adds, “it is worth visiting Kolukkumalai Tea Estate...You will be travelling through Harissons Malayalam tea estate. On the way you could see few beautiful waterfalls (depends on season). On reaching the top there is a view point from where one could see the panoramic view of Tamil Nadu.”

HolidayIQ Reviewer JOJI JOSEPH adds, “One the major plantation center of Munnar, Pothamedu is hardly 6 KMS from Munnar and you can drive up till the viewpoint through the zigzag road. The view point at the top of the Pothamedu hill gives you a panoramic view of the tea, coffee and cardamom plantations in the valley. The impressive green mountains, hills, cool climate and the scenic beauty make it sought after place”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Sreesha Divakaran adds, “The thing is, however, that Kodaikanal is filled with viewpoints - enforcing my belief that Kodai is a hillstation to relax in and be walked around, rather than a place where you should rush to tourist sites”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Jaison Netto shares, “This place is amazing due to the beautiful view of the valley and the hills from there. It's a walking path where you can explore the whole Kodai, its serene beauty along with the hills, clouds and valley and on the other side”

One has board the cable car from Singamari near Darjeeling Chowk Bazaar....The view is extremely mesmerizing as one passes through clouds or fog, sometime gives u feeling of a open hello ride inside the clouds.”

From this view point we could see a waterfall and we could also spot curvy roads on the mountain in front of the one we were standing on. The foggy weather made this place more beautiful.”

If the day is sunny, a fairly prominent panoramic view of the entire landscape can be grabbed from the cable car while moving down - the land & the lake, the valleys pregnant with flora, apple plantations and rich vegetation of oak, pine, deodar, the buildings, schools, playgrounds, church, temples all cutting out a wonderful vista together.”

Starting with Bushi dam (popular only during rainy season), and the Lion point on the highest point, followed by Shivling point a few kms further....The best time is in the evening an hour before sunset.

As sun set nears, the sky turned orangeish and you can watch various hues and colours as the sun slowly sets down.”
