About an hour drive from Munnar, this peak is known as the Himalayas of southern India. It is thought to be the highest peak in the Western Ghats, a peak wrapped in tea plantations. On both sides of the road, the scent and sight of tea gardens welcomes you. The word Anamudi means Elephant forehead, and it is home to Asia’s largest surviving population of Elephants. Endangered Gaurs, Nilgiri Langurs, lion tailed Macaque, Leopards and Bengal tigers have made their home here. The peak is also habitat to a unique frog. Here’s an opportunity to watch wild animals in their natural habitat.
The hills are peppered with interesting flora and fauna. The green forest is fed by large, scenic rivers in Kerala and Tamil Nadu. There are plenty of public transport, but the only way to reach the peak is by trekking. The grassy slopes of the north and south are easy to climb but the east and west are steep. You are allowed to trek up to 2 kilometres with facilities provided by the authorities. Ardent trekkers however must get a permit from Eravikulam National Park authorities. The climb is possible after the authorities check weather conditions. You can camp here as well and let the mountain air revitalise you. At the top of the Peak, the climate is cold and misty. Clouds cuddle your feet while you soak in fresh, cool air filled with the scent of tea leaves.
