Echo Point, Munnar
(2.5/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
At Echo Point, it's easy to see how the site got it's name. The natural echo phenomenon occurs along a scenic lakeshore that's surrounded by mountainous ridges. At the height of 1,700 m (5577 ft), the site became globally renowned for its rare Neelakurinji flowers, which bloom once every 12 years. Once you reach the uppermost railway station, feel free to shout and hear the echo of your voice return to you. Be sure to bring your trekking equipment, along with extra food and water, if you wish to explore the surrounding misty hills, waterfalls, and forest. A visit to Echo Point represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Munnar vacation planner to plot your vacation.

  • If it is crowded, please avoid this place, you cant even hear your voice. We waited for 1 hour to avoid crowd and to hear our voice. But this is a scenic place and need maintenance. 
  • 15 km from town: this place give good entertainment to children. Scream loudly and hear your echo back 
  • The place is absolutely beautiful but too much of shops cramped in the area really takes out the essence of the place. Would have been great if it was a bit cleaner.

  • Awsm place.Offers nice background for taking pics. Has small vendors selling fresh cut fruits and cashews.The boating also offers niceexperience and views. Had small vendors selling variety of products from toys,decoratives to local food to lot more.Overall a nice place.
  • My most favorite place in Munnar is this lovely setting by the reservoir. It's a great place to have a picnic. During our visit, the sun was gentle in the skies, locals were fishing in the reservoir, few visitors were snacking by the banks. As the name goes, anything you shout aloud echoes here. There is no entry ticket and there is a good amount of space by the roads available for parking.
  • Echo Point is about 15 km from Munnar. Go there and scream as loud as you can..and wait for a minute. You can hear your echo back! Its quite interesting. If you have kids with you..they will love it. They can experience this natural phenomenon firsthand.
  • Awesome place...really awesome...its the one of the popular tourist destination in India,Located on Munnar ,Idukki district, Kerala. This scenic place gets its name from the natural echo phenomenon here and very special beauty of nature. Again..again i want see the beauty of echo point,, thanks the "God's Own Country-Kerala"
  • Nice place to take photos as it was just like a movie scenery. Rs. 20/- per pic will be charged for photos. Bunch of trees on the other side of the water reflects the echo sound of ours. It was awesome experience. It is on the way to Top Station from Munnar and about 15 kms from Munnar.
