Eravikulam National Park Munnar is Closed for Visitors from 29th January to 01st April 2018 

The frontline staff of Eravikulam National Park has observed newly born Tahr calves in the tourism zone and many of the female Tahrs in pregnancy. The visitation rate in the tourism zone is extremely high and is highly detrimental to the calving of Nilgiri Tahrs. The newly born Tahr calves are highly vulnerable to disturbances. 

Considering these circumstances, Principal Chief Conservator of Forests (Wildlife) & Chief Wildlife Warden, Kerala ordered to close the Eravikulam National Park for visitors from 29th January to 01st April 2018 due to the breeding season." - Wildlife Warden, Munnar.

While answering calls from our readers, we usually come across questions related to useful contact numbers in Munnar for any kind of emergency. So we thought to prepare this article and we are trying to convert it  as one of the most useful article for tourists.

Given below is one incident that recently happened and that also inspired us to write this article

"Few days before a honeymoon couple who are supposed to check inn at Great Escape Resort, reached Munnar late night. They were coming from Kannur and was using GPS for smooth commute. Once they enter Munnar town, they took wrong route and travel ahead. 

Unfortunately they lost GPS signal as well. They drove forward in the same route and crossed Mattupetty dam which is not at all safe for night journey as this place is well known for wild elephants passing through and worst part is that their booked resort is not at all in the route they went.  

We got their call at midnight 2 AM for help. First of all we asked to take vehicle reverse and come to Munnar town. Eventhough they lost the GPS, they drive back to opposite side and by God's grace they reached to Town without any trouble. Then we describe the route properly and by 4 Am they reached the hotel "
