I had been just today to this place, and I first started with this place because this is at the top most point and if you cover this place early it is better or you will see too much crowd and traffic. On the way you will enjoy the nature, full of greenery.

"Picturesque view of the tea-estates"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Jan 4, 2017
This place is the border of two states Kerala and Tamil Nadu. You can actually see the border and you will experience welcome messages from your Mobile service providers as you go at this place :P
You can roam in to the tea gardens and click pictures. The route to the place is amazing. Visit this place in morning if you want to see the misty mountains and enjoy the chilling cold.

It looks like an Album cover of a great artist. Long trees and a blue hill range of this location doesn't need any description. It's majestic, wild and splendid at the same time. These kind of landscapes make you forget everything else in your life. I would like to come here with Dad and show him this place just to make him understand what I am up to in my life as photographer.
This photo was captured on my way to Top station. It's at distance of 2/3 hours from Munnar city.

About Top Station (View point)

voted as clean

Top Station was an important trade centre in the early days. Top Station is situated about 1700 m above sea level at about 41 km from Munnar town, on Munnar – Kodaikanal road.

Top Station is a favourite spot for many, as it provides a panoramic view of Munnar and surrounding areas. As Munnar has a varying altitude of 1500 - 2450 m above sea level, it appears mostly as a green carpet from Top Station. The Shola forests, rolling grasslands, valleys, water bodies and tea, coffee and spice plantations when viewed from this location provides a breath-taking experience.

Top Station is the highest point in Munnar which is easily accessible to tourists. It is also the natural habitat of the rare Nilakurinji plants (strobilanthus). Nilakurinji plants, which bloom only once in twelve years, envelope the hill sides of Top Station in bright blue. The next bloom of Nilakurinji plants is supposed to take place in the year of 2018.

Top Station, situated atop Munnar, borders Idukki District of Kerala and Theni District of Tamil Nadu. It is a place mostly shrouded with mist. But when the sky is clear, Madurai District of Tamil Nadu can be viewed from this spot.
