HolidayIQ Reviewer Joji Joseph says, “If one wants to take home the flavor of different teas, they can buy fresh packets from the outlet attached to the factory and the salesmen will explain on how to extract the different tastes. If the climate is favorable we can see some parts of the nearby district of Tamil Nadu and the villages like a cluster of matchboxes. We could watch the sunset too before starting our journey back to Munnar. ” Read Full Review 

HolidayIQ Reviewer Utsav Agrawal adds, “Feel the clouds near you; The topmost point in Munnar actually comes in Theni district of Tamil Nadu. The view is awesome for photography and the place has camping facility.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Saurabh Maheshwari shares, “Here you will find a huge dam. I have seen so many dams in my life but trust me this one is the best. It is the only earth dam I have ever seen. I would recommend going just before sunset maybe around 4.30 PM as their entry closes by 5.30 PM or 6 PM. This will let you witness the beauty of the sunset and see dam water turning golden in color while the last rays of sunlight fall on it.” Read Full Review 

HolidayIQ Reviewer Jai Bharathi adds, “Highest peak with a heart-shaped lake on top; Get ready for a tiresome trek to the top of the peak. Night camping is not allowed and hence plan to get back to the base by evening..” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Rakhi Yadav adds, “Good place for a long drive; It was really very dangerous to drive there in the evening as the environment is foggy. We visited the fort and was not worth a visit. The food here is really expensive. It's four times their actual price, there are many points and they were named after British guys. Sunset point is very good” Read Full Review 

HolidayIQ Reviewer Viral Vira says, “Watching the sunset here is a treat, they also have a greenhouse; you need to go, after crossing a stone lane through a pond full of fishes. Flowers planted all through the location. You wouldn't need anything else, except your loved ones, enough time to sit back and relax and a camera.” Read Full Review
