Echo Point – Munnar

echo-point

We all love places and experiences where we can reconnect with the child inside us. The childlike enthusiasm with which all our guests yell to their hearts content at this wonderful location is a truly endearing sight.

About 15 km from Munnar lies the famous Echo Point. Popular for its natural echo phenomenon, one can always see the area full of eager visitors throughout the year. At an altitude of about 600 ft, people love taking a walk in the lush greenery surrounding the place. It is an ideal picnic spot.

People usually come across Echo Point while making the trip to Top Station, the highest point (1700m) in Munnar, on the Munnar-Kodaikkanal road. Here the clouds seem like they are just an arm’s length away and one gets a brilliant view of the valley below. This is also a prime viewing spot for the Neelakurinji flowers (Strobilanthus), which  bloom once every twelve years.
