Kundala Lake: When the sun rays fall on Kundala Lake, it creates a glimmering effect to give tourists a heaven-like experience and help them enjoy the beauty of Kundala.The attractive Kundala lake is surrounded by green valleys and exalted landscapes. That almost every photographer would like to capture in their lenses. To get the most amazing pictures, one must reach this spot early in the morning and see how a blanket of cloud surfaces the lake when the first few rays of the sun make the atmosphere magical.
Kundala has located approximately 20 km from Munnar on the way to Top Station and it is at a height of 1700 meters above sea level. People love to see the Cherry gardens here, which blossoms twice a year and make the surroundings of the lake even more alluring. However, the famous Neela Kurunji flowers, which bloom once in twelve years and change the green valleys of Kundala into invigorating blue beauties, are hard to see, because of their rare availability.
The Kundala Lake gives way to an artificial dam ‘Kundala Dam,’ which is another famous attraction of this region. It was constructed for Pallivasal Hydro Electric Project in 1946 and is considered to be Asia’s first Arch Dam, also known as Sethuparvathipuram Dam. One can see many things in the surrounding of this dam, like the green valleys, tea gardens, waterfalls, eucalyptus and pine trees, etc. Boating is another major attraction at this glorious lake.
One can try different types of boating facilities here, like pedal boating, Kashmiri Shikkara boating, row boating, speed boating, and more. Horseback rides and balloon shooting games are other activities that keep the kids and adults engaged. A couple of food stalls and restaurants near the lake serves fast food like dosa, noodles, sandwiches, omelet, and soft drinks. The connectivity of this majestic hill town with other nearby villages and towns is pretty good and one can easily come here through a taxi or a bus.
