Lying on the wind ward side of the Western Ghats, Kerala has a long chain of lush, mist- clad hill stations that are home to exotic wildlife. The hill resorts in Kerala offer the most magical experience of nature in all its virgin beauty.
(60 km from Idukki) Situated at the confluence of the three mountain streams, 1600m above sea level, this hill station was once the summer resort of the erstwhile British Government in South India. Sprawling tea plantations, picture-book towns, winding lanes and holiday facilities make this a popular resort town. The highest point on the Munnar – Kodaikanal road is Top Station, lying 1700 m above sea level. Mattupetty, famous for its highly specialised dairy farm, the Mattupetty Lake and Dam, the sprawling Kundala tea plantations and the Kundala lake are other attractions in the vicinity.
