One thing that is highly underrated in God’s own country i.e. Kerala is the adventure of Munnar Trekking. Kerala brings with it a perception of rivers, forests, beaches, and much more but not many people see it as a spot for the adventure seekers. Munnar strives to change that thought with a beautiful amalgamation of tea plantations and their serenity with the thrill of some lovely treks.

Munnar is home to some of the biggest tea plantations established by the British and which cater to some of the biggest tea brands like Tata and more. Besides the lush tea plantations, Munnar is also quite popular for its Eravikulam National Park and Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary which are home to some endemic and endangered species as well.

Besides all these beautiful places and experiences to have in Munnar, there are also multiple trails for some adventure-filled or serene treks. There are around 5-6 different treks in and around Munnar itself each with different experiences, difficulty levels and distance.

Munnar is home to the highest peak in the Western Ghats i.e. the Anamudi peak. It reaches a height of 2,695m and it makes for one of the most popular treks as well. Though difficult, it is one of the thrilling and memorable experiences. Forest officials generally only allow up to 2kms of a trek for tourists but you can trek to the top of the peak by taking permissions from the authority at the Eravikulam National Park.

Another gorgeous trek is the trek to the second highest peak in Kerala i.e. Meesapulimala Peak. This peak is said to be older than the Himalayas and even has the UNESCO world heritage status. This trek again needs an easy to obtain a permit from the forest officials. The trek features one of the most beautiful parts of Kerala i.e. the Rhodo valley famous for the Rhododendron flowers.

One of the most popular but not easy treks in the Kannan Devan Hills. It is a high difficulty trek but the route from the lush green surroundings to the tea plantations is totally worth it. Making it even more worthwhile is the presence of some endemic birds and animals throughout the trek. At the highest point, you can see the highest arch dam in Asia i.e. the Idukki dam.

Another beautiful trek is the Idukki trek. Different to the Kannan Devan Hills, this is an easier and more serene trek. The route guides you through the forests and the cinnamon plantations. If you are an adventure seeker, you can go for the Chokramudi trek. It is easier at first but the difficulty level increases when the real climbing starts. It is one of the highest peaks in Munnar and offers breathtaking views and experience. There are a couple of more routes like the Chummar trek and Chithirapuram trek in Munnar.

All these different yet equally beautiful experiences make Munnar trekking a must add in your bucket list.
