 This is a walker’s paradise, and probably your purpose in visiting. Several routes have been carefully measured and assessed and are led by experienced guides.

• Cardamom Walk - 4km - walk around the 60 acre Cardamom Estate including a visit to see the cardamom cultivation and processing. This takes around 2 hours.

• Mountain Trek -†7km -†trek through the steep mountains surrounding the Windermere Estate. This takes about 4 hours and includes a bird’s eye view of the colonial town of Munnar. Good walking shoes/boots are recommended.

• Waterfall Trek - 9km -†a four hour trek through the beautiful tea plantations and forests to the Attukadu waterfalls. Request a picnic before you leave and enjoy it in this perfect spot.

 Sightseeing further a field…

• Mattupetty Lake and Dam is a perfect picnic spot, and a chance to try your skill at boating.

• Eravikulam National Park is home to the endangered Milgir Tahr (mountain goat), a challenge for the fittest is the Anamundi peak (2695m) in the southern region.

• Tea museum in Munnar Town for a guided tour of a typical tea factory with interesting notes of history. Learn the ‘leaf to pot’ ideal.

• Top Station at 1700m. The rare Neelakuranji plant belongs to this region and blooms once every 12 years bathing the hillsides in bright blue. From this high point you have a panoramic view over the Ghats into Tamil Nadu.

• Marayoor (40km), the only place in Kerala with natural sandalwood trees (sandalwood oil is treasured in traditional medicine). There are caves with mural and relics from the New Stone Age civilisation and a remarkable children’s park which shelters under the canopy of a single Banyan tree. The Thoovanam Waterfall and Rajiv Ghandhi National Park are nearby.
