If you really want to get into some remote wilderness to find peace along with some thrilling adventure, Mukurthi National Park is the ultimate destination. Sandwiched by two national parks, Mudumalai, and Silent Valley, the Mukurthi National Park offers trekkers hundreds of trails that criss-cross its dense forest. Mukurthi occupies the crest of Nilgiris plateau, consisting of some of the highest hills in South India. The average elevation of the peak is over 8,000 feet. Much of Mukurthi’s vegetation especially the red mushroom and wildlife like the rest of the Nilgiris has remarkable similarity with the Himalayas. While trekking, if you see giant Asian elephants, then don’t be surprised. Trekking through the Mukurthi peak, you have Montane grasslands, shrubs cape and the Shola forest that combine to keep the temperatures low and the winds gusty. You will trek around the lake and waterfall, and suddenly it will lead to the grasslands leaving you awestruck.
