    Relaxing
    This was a lovely and relaxing experience with lovely views. After buying the tickets we took the bus to the start of the walking path. Whilst on the bus we saw a goat. At the entrance to the path there was a guard who was taking your tickets and right by him at that point was another goat. He said that would be the only one that we would see. Im not sure if we were just lucky though but we managed to see a lot of other goats on the walk. The path was paved the whole way round. It was a lovely experience, but if I am honest it would have been a long way to come and not see any goats.

    A wonderful sightseeing for a nature lover
    Eravikulam national park situated next to anaimudi peak. It is famous for Nilgiri Tahr. If you're lucky, you can see these Tahr. Please bear in mind, it is a forest and try to make a calm environment. Don't make weird noises as it will scare the wild animals. The entry ticket is 200 for an adult and they will carry you in a van to a spot midst of the mountain range. From there you can walk further to the hilltop. You will witness a beautiful landscape, clouds, tiny waterfalls.

    Wonderful! Breath Taking view from the Top.
    Best place to see in Munnar. It will be definitely loved by nature lovers. The entry fees is 200 for an adult. The park bus take tourist from base to the top. Private vehicles are not allowed as roads are very narrow. It is a wonderful experience through the mist. We got an amazing weather when we went and it was breathtaking.

    Scenic experience
    This place is only for the Nilgiri Tahr at the top, there's nothing much to do here except a small trek with good views for photography. It feels good to just sit and view the surroundings and the scenic views of the mountains and tea plantations. Would suggest online bookings prior to the visit. There is a shuttle bus which would pick you up from the base and would drop at the entrance of the national park.

    Good for nature walk, Skippable as well
    The park is a conservatory of the local variety of mountain goats called "Tahr", and as such you don't have much to do here. Once ticketed, a bus will drop you to the top, where you can take a kilometre long walk and back, and get back. You can buy tickets at windows or online on the attraction's website. The queue for the ticket can be long, so better to buy online. The basic ticket is about 200 for adults, 150 for children, and 500 for foreigners. A private buggy for 5 costs 7500/- and saves you a kilometre walk at the top, which I wouldn't suggest you save since there isn't much if you do. Even then the queue for the boarding bus can take up to an hour. Getting on the bus is haphazard since the queue is not strictly enforced. At the top, you have toilets and a restaurant. Ride amidst tea plantations and walk amidst nature and mountains can be a soothing experience with a pleasant breeze and amazing views. Overall a good way to spend two hours in a natural environment. You will get to see Tahr, of course.

It’s a scenic beauty with hills all around and resultant forests. It’s green and some waterfalls seen which adds to the beauty. The transport provided by the authority was a good experience and frequency is good.

A must visit place in munnar. Nature lovers will definitely love this place. The park's bus would take us from the base to the top. Private vehicles are not allowed as the roads are narrow. It is definitely a wonderful experience traveling through the mist.
The entry ticket is ₹200. It is better to book it online to avoid long long queues. In online we have time slots so we can book tickets as per our convenience.
Cafeteria and restroom are available at the top

Useless management, To board to the bus for park everyone has to stand in the queue for 2.30 hrs with the entry free of rs 200/person. Felt frustrated and doesn't worth at all

I visited this place recently and will try to explain various aspects of this place.

Once we reach the entry point, we have to park the vehicle in the parking spot and private vehicles will not be allowed any further.
They have a huge parking space.

We have to purchase tickets for the bus facility which are priced at 200/- per adult and 150/- for kids.

We have to wait for the bus in designated boarding lines.
The buses are very frequent and we can get it soon.
The uphill travel is 4kms through bus and last 1km through walk.
The ride and walk are so unique and different as it's completely filled with fog and so chill.
The last part which is through walk is so fun and there are a lot of view points and photo points on the way.
If we are lucky we can spot few Niligiri thars which are native to Munnar.

There are restrooms and snack counters .
All the places are very clean and well maintained.

Completely worth visiting the place.
Must visit place.

If you are in and around Munnar then this is a must visit place. It is a small but well maintained park, home to the endangered Nilgiri Tahr. We got amazing weather when we went and it was breathtaking. The view from the top is serene.

You can book tickets online and just get it authorised at the park (there is a separate online counter) instead of standing in long queues at the park. Plan to be there by 9am max to avoid the crowds and if possible avoid the weekends.

Once you park your car (another reason to get early is that you get space for parking inside the park) you can collect your tickets and a shuttle bus will take you to the top. You get off and do-a small hike that takes you even higher with amazing views and an encounter with the Birlhiri Tahr. There is a coffee shop and also a souvenir plus local spices, herbs shop at the top. Overall well managed and totally worth the 2-3 hours of time invested
