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.
