Munnar rises as three mountain streams merge - Mudrapuzha, Nallathanni and Kundala. 1,600 m above sea level. One of the main attractions near Munnar is the Eravikulam National Park. This park is also home to several species of rare butterflies, animals and birds. A great place for trekking, the park offers a magnificent view of the tea plantations caressed by blankets of mists. The park becomes a hot destination when the hill slopes here get covered in a carpet of blue, resulting from the flowering of the Neelakurinji.
- Atukkad Waterfalls: Nestled 2 km away from Munnar amidst beautiful hills and lush green jungles, this pristine waterfall makes for romantic escapades and picnics site. However, the road to Atukkad is very narrow and needs a lot of experience to drive on.
- Marundeeswarar Temple: A very beautiful place to visit when in Munnar, which is itself situated at the confluence of three mountain streams Mudrapuzha, Nallathanni and Kundala and hence is a very scenic place.
- Photo Point: Photo Point is located 2 kms from Munnar, on the way to the Madupetty Dam. It is a small area of land, filled with calm woods and a small, sparkling stream.
