A well preserved National park situated just 15 kms from Munnar town, the Eravikulam National Park is one of the major attractions of Munnar. You have a chance to spot one of the rare species of mammals, the Nilgiri Tahr. The park area is known by the name Rajamalai. You are allowed inside only in a government bus for a 1 hour drive which is for sure exciting and if lucky you will see a whole lot of wild residents of the jungle. From here you get an awesome view of the Tea plantations at a distance. The park looks at its best during the Neelakurinji [blue shrub endemic to this part of the Western Ghats] bloom as it looks stunning wearing its blue outfit. It happens only once in twelve years and it is a delight to witness the same.
