Lakkom Water Falls

This waterfall is part of the Eravikulam National Park and falls on the route to Udumalaipettai from Munnar. It originates from the Eravikulam stream at around 30 km off Munnar. Travel through the thick tea plantation on a narrow winding trail and witness this silky white magic of nature. In the clear water of the pool below, you can even see your toe twiddling on the rocks.

The water takes a plunge out of a thick green forest from afar and the sight of this small yet charming waterfall is spellbinding. There is a small shop situated a little away from the fall that serves mouth-watering Kerala food, like fish, rice, sambhar etc. It is one of the sightseeing places in Munnar which commands your attention.

Rose Garden

The aromatic floating fumes of a plethora of plant species, fruits, flowers and crops in a 2acre stretch, brimming with varied colors on a 360-degree pan is a place that only lies in Munnar. One of the perfect Munnar tourist places which you just cannot afford to miss while you are in Munnar. 

This is actually a maze of a number of pretty flowers like Dahlias, Rose, Chrysanthemums, and plants like pepper, cardamom, vanilla etc at a height of 3500 feet above the sea level. The name sounds a little misleading in that way because there are a variety of flowers which are following the contours and slopes and beautifying the place and not just Roses. 
However, this is one of the attractions in Munnar that leaves a mark on the visitors. 

The spices and other fruits which are planted in this garden along with other flowers release unique fragrances in the air which makes you feel very refreshing while you are enjoying the sheer bliss of watching the beauty around.
