A paradise full of rare varieties of flora and fauna, the Eravikulam National Park is home to Nilgiri tahr, a species of mountain goat currently listed as endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. Around one-third of the goat’s population in the entire world resides here. The other animals found are the Indian flying fox, Asiatic jackal, sloth bear, small Indian civet etc. The land is covered in shola forests, concentrated in the valleys of the jungle. Turner’s Valley, which sits about halfway into the park, is the deepest point. The Neelakurinji plant, which is again an uncommon sight, grows here once every 12 years. Put this place on your must-visit list because Anamudi, the highest peak in South India also lies here. Eravikulam lies 13 km away from Munnar. Remember, the park is closed for the public during January-February due to calving season.


Spread over a vast area, Eravikulam was declared a national park in 1978, given the hundreds of mammals, amphibians and birds that were found here.
