From Munnar to Top Station and Back: A Cinematic Odyssey Through Nature's Wonders

Join us on an extended journey from Munnar to Top Station and back, weaving through the stunning landscapes of Kerala, India. In this cinematic adventure, we encounter wild elephants, brave unpredictable weather, and navigate through thunderstorms, making it an unforgettable road trip.

Our expedition begins as we depart from Elephant Passage Resort in Munnar at 11 am. The initial 16 minutes showcase the scenic beauty of Mattupetty Dam, Eco Point, and Kundala Dam. We decided to forego stops at Mattupetty Dam and Kundala Dam, keeping our eyes on the prize—Top Station.

About 14 kilometers from Munnar, we encounter a traffic block on a jungle road. The cause? A majestic herd of wild elephants grazing in the meadows, captivating our hearts and the lens of our GoPro dash cam.

As we continue towards Top Station, the weather transforms from cloudy to a downpour. The drive becomes more exhilarating, setting the stage for the return journey.

The narrative takes a thrilling turn on the way back. The return trip, captured in the latter half of the video, unfolds in extreme thunderstorms. The rain, lightning, and thunder add a dramatic flair to our adventure.

The video concludes as we navigate through Munnar town, facing heavy traffic amidst the relentless thunderstorm. The entire journey, now spanning 33 minutes, encapsulates the raw beauty and challenges of this incredible road trip.
