Anayirankal, a tourist place situated at a distance of 22 km from Munnar, is best known for its tea plantations, dam and lake. Anayirankal Lake and Dam attract hundreds of visitors who come here to grab the rare sight of elephant herds quenching their thirst from the lake.
Long stretches of forest and a vast expanse of tea plantation surround this region. Another chief attraction is the Tata Tea Plantations which allows travellers to take strolls enjoying the aroma of tea leaves.
Pothanmedu is situated closer to Anayirankal, and it would be smart to cover these two locations in one stretch. The lush green carpet of tea plants, serpentine roads and evergreen forests make this location a perfect getaway spot. There are several resorts with holidaying facilities in this region.
A day or two at these resorts would prove rejuvenating for those who want to get away from the maddening routines.
