Vattavada in Idukki

Most locations in Munnar are generally known for their slopes, rare fauna and a wonderful view of the valley. Vattavada, however, is known for its vegetables. These terraced slopes and valleys, located 45 km to the east of Munnar, contain some of the finest crops and produce in all of Kerala.

Situated 6500 ft. above sea level, people visit this exceptional destination in large numbers. It is known for its equable climate and is blessed with abundant sunlight throughout the year. The slopes of the multi-coloured vegetable fields are dotted with various forest patches. One can see beautiful trees like Eucalyptus and Conifers in these parts. You can also observe some rare butterfly species here, fluttering around in various hues and sizes.

The trekking routes to Vattavada are connected to many other important destinations in the area. A trek here can get you to other tourist favourites like Kodaikanal, Top Station, Mattupetty, Kanthaloor and Meesapulimala. People love walking these trails to soak in the beautiful natural vegetation. The locals are friendly and are always ready to help in any way they can.  Private operators also offer special packages that include mountain jeep safari, mountain biking and jungle camping. 

These lands have a rich history and the tribals of the area attest to that. Their customs, art forms, natural remedies and way of life have intrigued people for centuries and add a distinctive flavour to the entire place.
