A walk from Munnar. This place give a great view over the Munnar valley. Two small chai chops for drinks and snacks. Great in the morning when the valley is clear of mist and the sight is good.

This is the best place to view munnar's grandeur tea estates, its villages and paths winding to connect to next town. One can literally see clouds casting shade in one part of the tea gardens and other part still shining under sun or raining.

We found it was the best place, best views from here. If you are not too old just walk from Munnar headswork dam and enjoy the serene beauty. The road passes between tea plantation. You can have auto or car as well but walking is the best experience. On the top when you are tired, have Maggie and Lemon Tea.... More

A nice photo stop overlooking a very nice valley covered in tea plants. Up a steep and curvy road. Limited parking and a small snack stall nearby.

There is no good view at all. They have just popularised it for tourism. There was nothing to see. Extremely bad. Don't waste your time.
