    Eravikulam National Park: Located about 15 km from Munnar, this park is famous for its endangered inhabitant the Nilgiri Tahr. Spread over an area of 97 sq. km., this park is also home to several species of rare butterflies, animals and birds. A great place for trekking, the park offers a magnificent view of the tea plantations and also the rolling hills caressed by blankets of mists. The park becomes a hot destination when the hill slopes here get covered in a carpet of blue, resulting from the flowering of Neelakurinji.

    Anamudi Peak: Situated about 13 kilometers (8.1 miles) from Munnar town, Anamudi (2,695 meters (8,842 ft)) is Kerala's highest mountain and the highest Indian mountain south of the Himalayan range.

Lying at a height of 1700 m above sea level, Mattupetty is known for its storage masonry dam and the beautiful lake, which offers pleasurable boat rides, enabling one to enjoy the surrounding hills and landscape. Mattupetty's fame is also attributed to the dairy farm run by the Indo-Swiss Livestock Project, where one would come across different high yielding breeds of cows.
