The rolling hills and tea plantations of Munnar provide some of the highest vistas in southern India and are ideally suited to walking.
Walking options are available at all levels and lasting from two to five days, plus there are two centre treks which incorporate the Periyar region to the south of Munnar.
Your starting point for a two-day trek is around 18 kilometres from Munnar at an altitude of 1,500 metres.
You gradually climb to a height of over 2,500 metres passing through protected forests and reserves which are home to wild elephants, sambar, sloth bear and the endangered nilgiri tahr.
You overnight in high quality tents and warm sleeping bags are provided as temperatures fall in the night.

Explore the diverse foothills of the Himalaya including Amritsar, Dharamasala and time in Shimla to relax and experience the remains of the British Raj.
The cool climate of Munnar provides a welcome relief from the heat of the plains and is surrounded by some of the world's highest tea plantations.
Almora itself occupies a horseshoe-shaped ridge and is an important market town and administrative centre. It is also considered to be the cultural capital of the area, also known for Jim Corbett's tiger escapades. Its stone paved roads and wooden houses reflect its rich heritage.
Although Dharamsala is the better known of these two neighbouring towns, McLeod Ganj is the base for the Tibetan government in exile and their community. The Dalai Lama is often in residence in May and July and may lead prayers at these times.
At over 2,100 metres above sea level, Shimla was once the cool summer retreat for the British colonial government escaping from the heat of the plains.
For centuries the hill station at Darjeeling has provided respite from Calcutta’s fierce summer heat and also the ideal climate for tea planters to cultivate the 'Champagne of the East'. The Raj era estates and bungalows can be seen alongside the more recently arrived Tibetan population.
