Default Wild Elephant Resort, Munnar, Kerala

Planning a Holiday??Let me introduce you to an Eco-friendly Resort
situated at Munnar, Kerala, India situated on Kallar – Mankulam Road,
surrounded by scenic hills on one side, Tea Gardens on the other side,
Cardamom and Coffee plantations within our estate and Rain forest on
the opposite side.
The Flora and Fauna of the place is amazing and nature lovers will be
thrilled by the ambience and the beauty of the place. The resort is
situated 5500 feet above sea level and is perched on the top of a
hillock from where a perennial waterfall, from where the resort gets
its water from is visible. The deluxe rooms are situated beside the
swimming pool and the Mud Cottage and Bamboo Cottage are made to mix
with enchanting beauty of Nature. The Leaf cottage is carefully
designed with the background of Bamboo Leaf and has an excellent view
of the waterfalls, the tea gardens and the imposing mountains.

The rain forests are safe and ideal for trekking expeditions where
lovers of Nature can gain valuable knowledge about the amazing flora
and fauna. To give a few examples there are several varieties of
parasitic plants such as orchids which give beautiful flowers.
Different kinds of birds which can be watched from the Resort itself
add beauty to the existing greenery. There is a Magic tree in the
vicinity of the resort the bark of which changes its colours every
season, especially in the months of January to March one can see hues
of orange and blue which is a very rare sight. The villagers of the
area worship this tree as a symbol of Progeny and newly wedded couples
come and pray here for a happy married life.
The special importance of the place lies in the fact that within a
span of hardly 12 kms one can find different kinds of vegetation
ranging from Tea, Coffee, Cardamom, Black Pepper, Vanilla, Strawberry,
Turmeric and Ginger at the higher levels and Rubber, Plantains,
Coconuts, Aracanut and Palm trees at the lower levels. This wide
variety of plantations cannot be found in such a small radius anywhere
in the World.
There is a Fishpond in the vicinity of the Resort where one can feed
the fish with Bread pieces. There are so many of them that you can
watch them competing with each other to get the piece of bread which
you throw.
For those of you who are interested in fishing, a fishing line awaits
you with which you can try your luck and the staff will only be glad
enough to cook the catch for you with yummy masalas.

Not very far from the Resort is a place called Anakulam where if you
are lucky enough, you would be able to see hordes of wild elephants
coming to a stream to drink water from a certain place where the water
is a bit salty. It is believed that Elephants like the salty taste. I
had the luck to see over sixty elephants adults and babies put
