  • munnar top station

    Top Station

    Munnar is a bustling town nestled amidst the hills of the Western Ghats mountain range. Situated beside the confluence of three rivers, English planters established the earliest tea plantations in the area and even today there are numerous churches and bungalows in and around Munnar where guests can see vestiges of the colonial period. The rolling hill slopes around Munnar town are carpeted by large stretches of tea plantations interspersed by dense forests.

    Situated on the crest of a towering peak, Top Station was once, a trans-shipment point for cargoes of tea. A ropeway, delivered tea from the plantations in Munnar to Bodinayakkanur in the foothills below. Built in 1902, Top Station is a destination that is at once stunningly beautiful and rich in historical context, even though the remnants of the ropeway station have disappeared with the passage of time. It is a destination that is ideal for guest with a penchant for outdoor activities. The area is replete with trekking paths and mountain trails that one could explore.

    Escape Road

    The road was constructed in 1942 by the British as a conduit to evacuate the British population in the event of an imminent Japanese invasion of South India during World War II. Winding through the southern crest of the Palani Hills from Berijam Lake (Fort Hamilton) to Top Station, the road connected to roads from Munnar to the port in Cochin where evacuees would board waiting ships.

    The Escape Road, once the highest road in South India prior to its closure in 1990, passes through areas of breathtaking beauty and is today popular with trekking enthusiasts. Drizzle Drops offers two trekking options - a guided trek that traverses 5km one way and another, a soft trek of two km one way.
