About Chokramudi Peak

Chokramudi Peak is among the highest peaks of Munnar.  It is above 7200 feet above sea level. Strangely enough, the frightening height of the peak attracts the trekkers to hike it instead of keeping them afar.  

Bison Valley, Chinnakanal and Devikulam share their boundaries with Chokramudi. It makes Chokramudi even more appealing.  The views around Chokramudi Peak are incredible. 

Once you are at the top you will get to see Idukki Dam and Anamudi Peak. Both are major landmarks and main attractions for you to see in Munnar. You will also find tea plantations all along. 

The best part is Chokramudi Peak is inside Eravikulam National Park. The entire hill is covered with Shola Forest, which has made it look exceptional. It is a rich storehouse of rare herbs and plants.  On the other hand, animals like Nilgiri Tahrs, Gaurs, and elephants roam around the place.

Chokramudi Peak is ideal for beginners. It is a moderate trek.  You can choose the early morning so that you can enjoy a magnificent sunrise from the top. 

Prepare to trek for 4-5 hours. The base of the trek is Pothamedu. Forest Department officials will provide you with all the necessary information about the trek. On the other hand, arranging a guided trek is also possible. 

The trek starts at Bison valley in Munnar. You will finish trekking at Gap Road, Munnar.  At the initial stage, the trek is not very difficult to hike. You will be awestruck to see the Annamalai Hills. The trail is well maintained and well defined.  

You will be surprised to observe that as you move up, the tea plantations give way to rocky terrains. Take a break at Kurisumala.  You can also click photographs as many as you can. The second half of the trek is steep. Moreover, you will also feel little altitude gain. However, when you reach the zenith of Chokramudi you will feel like a winner.
