Eravikulam National Park is one of Munnar’s most popular attractions. Covering an area of 97 square kilometers, this national park is known to be the home of NilgiriTahr, an endangered mountain goat of the region. Located along the western Ghats, this wildlife reserve houses a wide variety of animals, birds and rare butterfly species.
The mountainous slopes of Eravikulam look lovely when the Neelakurinji flower is one of its silly flowers, after every 12 years. This wildlife reserve is not only known for its wildlife, but also for the adventure opportunities it offers. As Anamudi Peak, the highest peak in South India, is located within the park, it is quite popular among hikers. One can enjoy a panoramic view of the surrounding hills covered with mist and lush tea gardens.
