Its a nice hill station to visit. Its is totally different from other hill station as it is surrounded with tea garden which is not generally seen. Nice ride. Eravikulam national park is the best place to visit, mostly South-Indian foods are served. Best place to have nature walks.

Though the road was narrow and not all that great, the scenic beauty was too too good and irresistible, watch out the monkeys at the forest check post, keep the windows always up. Nice drive. wonderful trip, a trip we will never forget as a family.

Car travelling is very good. It takes 4 hours to reach Munnar. Sightseeing is very good in Munnar, Udumalpet Road. We can take lot of photos if you are in car. Lot of falls on the way to Munnar. Animals sightseeing is very good in car. You can enjoy a lot if you are in car. You no need to go for separate safari if you go in a car. Don't miss the free safari. :)

From Coimbatore to Campnoel it takes 8 hours to reach. Saw many falls as it was rainy season so enjoyed lot with car. Driver also seems to be okay. But lot leeches on the way from Munnar to camp Noel, so better take salt packet with you. Also you can find some good restaurants in Munnar and coffee shops.
