Meesapulimala is the second highest peak in the Western Ghats of Idukki district on the Indian subcontinent after Anamudi. Its peak is 2,640 meters (8,661 ft) above sea level. The name derives from the fact that it is formed of eight hills which spread like a mustache which gave a name as “Meesapulimala”. It is considered to be the most beautiful mountains to climb over in the south Western Ghats.
The Best part of the Meesapulimala Trek you could see lots of rhododendrons flowers. The Valley is also called Rhodo Valley. It’s special because it only places you see these flowers in south India else it grows in abundance in Sikkim and nearby regions. Rhododendron trees are actually the state tree of Sikkim.

Leaving from Bangalore in the late evening. We request you to have some light food before traveling. This trip would be an overnight journey to Munnar base camp in
which we would have an informal introduction and have fun.
Silent Valley Campsite
We would be reaching to the forest department base in Munnar and from there we would take a Jeep ride to our Silent Valley Campsite. The campsite is located in heart of the jungle of the meesupulimala forest and it has a panoramic view of the whole valley below.
After fresh-up and breakfast, we would start trekking from the campsite towards Rhodo valley. Initially, the terrain is little steep till we reach waterfall lagoon, from here the terrain keeps gaining altitude as well lose it.
The terrain goes through dense jungle, long grass, pine trees beside beautiful water stream assures you that you are into a heavenly atmosphere.
Rhodo Valley starts just after reaching the jeep track on the trail. Do look out for rhododendron flowers by the side of the route. This flowers definitely win your heart with its different colors and abundance nature.
From here to about 2km is forest check post in the Rhodo valley. The panoramic view from the viewpoint of this check post is very rejuvenating.
The Lush green forest, the green carpet on the small dome hills looks very beautiful. You could also spot some wild elephants group from this point.
After descending for a couple of meters, we would enter the dense forest of long grass and then a meadow walk on soft grass for a little while.
We would be crossing about 6 more small hills to reach our peak. The distance from Rhodo Valley check post to the peak is about 4 kms one side but believe me, the time flies so fast that it seems you just crossed these check post couple of minutes back.
We would have our packed lunch on the peak while enjoying the beauty before our eyes, it’s a very satisfying feeling.
Explore for a while for photos and then would start descending from the peak back to the campsite through the same route.
After fresh-up and snacks, we would play some games and enjoy a campfire while a hot dinner.
Next morning, we would explore a waterfall about nearby the campsite
And then would return back to Munnar forest department through jeep and back to
Bangalore on Sunday night.
