Hidden in the amazing green valleys of Munnar, this stunning destination is one of Kerala's most beautiful hill towns, yet to be explored by many tourists. This place is among many attractive destinations in Munnar, that draws a large number of tourists every day, to explore the unseen beauty of the town and to feel its exquisiteness in absolute peace. Top Station is located around 32 km away from Munnar, on the Munnar-Kodaikkanal road, at a height of 1700 meters above the sea level. This place falls on the border of Kerala and Tamil Nadu, and so it offers a clear view of the panoramic Western Ghats and the valley of Theni District in Tamil Nadu.
Top Station got its name from the fact that it was the uppermost railway station, located in the Kundala Valley. This destination is popular for many reasons, however, the famous Neelakurinji flowers (Strobilanthus), which bloom once in twelve years, makes this place special among tourists. Other things that make this a place worth visiting are its amazing tea plantation, serene valleys, enchanting waterfalls, and exotic forest life.
To catch a beautiful sight of the clouds hovering on top of the lake or over the tea garden, one must get up early in the morning and see how beautiful our nature looks, when left untouched and uninterrupted. The best time to visit the Top Station is from April to May and the best way to come here is through a bus or cab, which can be booked directly from Munnar..
