#Wildlife Sanctuary
Eravikulam National Park in Munnar

It is an ideal place for seeing the biodiversity of high elevation shola-grassland ecosystem. The park offers a magnificent view of the tea plantations and also of the rolling hills caressed by blankets of mist. The park becomes a hot destination when the hill slopes get covered in a carpet of blue, resulting from the flowering of Neelakurinji. It is a plant endemic to this part of the Western Ghats which blooms once in 12 years.
Visitors are taken to Rajamalai in forest dept vehicles and given an opportunity to see all this. The National Park is usually closed at the time of calving of Nilgiri Tahr which is usually during the early months of every year. Private vehicles are not allowed here.

"Awesome place to visit. We just reached around 10 am in the morning to the base and few of us wanna trek to reach the top, However others not ready to cover 6 kms, so we got into bus. The mini bus started moving towards the destination, i,e. the hill top. It was one of the most thrilling and we all excited like kids after seeing the beauty of nature and we were floating in the clouds several hundred meters above sea level. Finally we have reached to the top and got down from bus and started moving to the top. We took pictures with Tahr (Name of the goat used to live in mountains) and spine chilling pure waters. Basic amenities were available, but couldn't see any immediate help or rescue team at the top in case of any emergency. Small museum was there also to know the history about the place. Also Kuriji plants are there, which blossoms once in every 12 years. Overall it was worth going there to enjoy the breathtaking nature at its best, and in God's own country."

"Very beautiful place. Usually there will be a waiting line for the bus to take you the place on hill and from there we can walk. Endangered goats are of special attraction. I visited the place in the monsoons and the rainy clouds touching the mountain top is just amazing. Prepare for rain on the top at any time."

"Perfect place to spot endangered Nilgiri Tahr. About 20 minutes uphill drive from the ticket counter in the mini bus. Expect very long queues at ticket counter and boarding area during seasons. Ticket rate is Rs 90/-. Online tickets are available for Rs 140. After alighting from the bus, about 2 km can be walked through the park. "
