About Anayirankal Dam
Ranked amongst the top scenic places to visit in Munnar, Anayirankal Dam is an ideal picnic spot for travellers and locals alike. Almost 22km away from Munnar, the dam is located amidst tea plantations and dense green forests. The word Anayirankal is a mix of two words, ‘Aana’ meaning ‘elephants’ and ‘irankal’ meaning ‘coming down’.
The name ‘Anayirankal Dam’ denotes the dam where elephants come down to drink water. If you’re lucky you might just spot herds of elephants from nearby forests coming down to the lake for some water. You can spend time boating or at the café/food court inside the park.
