“Top Station average, the way there from Munnar amazing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2013

View from Top Station is average but all the way up to there is great! Breathtaking view of tea plantation from "Life of Pi" movie; lake (echo point) , where you can see around 17:00-18:00 fisherman pulling out about 50 m long fishnet by his hands; all the villages (if you go indirectly). That were my best 2 day of my 3 weeks trip. We took a tuk tuk. Price depends on your negotiation skills.

“Go early”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2013

It was foggy and late when we got there. Still worth the drive to get there. Saw wild elephants on the way.

“Not great accessibility”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2013

Unfortunately the day we went was a misty day and therefore the view was not great! Walking to the entrance was fine but to go to the peak the steps are too high which meant my mum missed out. The rest of us didn't go to the second point peak as it was so difficult. They need to replace the ropes with something more stable for people to hold on too as the steps are so high.
Am sure on a sunny day the views are amazing.

The waterfalls on the drive up are lovely.

“Risky for children and old people”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2013

The view from top station is amazing. But to reach there is little risky. We trek on a narrow path to reach the peak, which is shared by horse riders. A slip of foot may land you in neighbouring Tamil Nadu. Also there is dust and dirt in the trekking path. Better enjoy the view from a safe distance.

“Must See in Munnar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2013

the drive from Munnar town to top station which is some 36kms away itself is beautiful. The road curves within the Tea estates are amazing and feel of driving in mountains which are mix of forest and Tea gardens is just too good.
