Trek in the Letchmi Hills

If you have a day or more in Munnar, and are actively inclined, we heartily recommend a trek in the Letchmi hills. The day will start with a drive out to a starting point at around 1,420 metres above sea level. From here you will walk through tea plantations for about 30 to 40 minutes, eventually reaching a hill top rest point. The rest of the trek will then continue along the ridge of the hill, offering staggering views on all sides. You will continue walking for around 2-3 hours, covering the grasslands and rocky mountain slopes on one side and tea plantations on the other, with views across to the vegetation of the Shola forest and in the distance the majestic Anaimudi, the highest peak in South India. You would typically return to your lodge in the early afternoon for some well-earned r&r.
