Rising to a towering height of 8,842 feet, Anamudi is the highest peak in Southern India. It is a photographer’s delight and a trekker’s paradise. Situated in the Western Ghats in the district of Idukki, Kerala, the mountain offers a breathtaking experience to entice tourists from India as well as international travellers. Since it is located in the subtropical region, the peak does not experience any snowfall in spite of being the tallest in the Western Ghats.
Covered with dense evergreen forests and meandering rivers, it is home for innumerable species of animals and birds. It is phenomenal in hosting the endangered Asian elephants, Nilgiri Tahr and Gaur. You can also find the rare Neelakurinji flowers in the forests.
