Searching all over the internet on Meesapulimala will show up some pretty good amount of articles related to Messapulimala trekking or KDFC Messapulimala packages etc.. Yeah, that’s great to see and it’s a nice feeling that people used to visit this beautiful place in Munnar- the hill station of Kerala.

Frankly speaking, I just came to know about the legendary Meesapulimala after the Malayalam travel inspiring Movie – Charlie, directed by Martin Prakkat.

The movie was a commercial hit and there was a huge rush to Meesapulimala after this movie. People started to roam without much care to nature which started polluting this sacred place. And due to this, KFDC (Kerala Forest Development Corporation) has restricted unauthorized entry to Meesapuliamala via different routes and entry to Meesapulimala is now strictly controlled via KFDC Meesapulimala Packages.

Before jumping to the package details let me add a few more points for your info:

Previously people used to visit Meesapulimala via trekking from Kolukkumalai to Meesapulimala. This route is now classified as an illegal route and please note that any unlawful entry via this route will be punished with imprisonment based on the Kerala Forest Act 1961 Section 27(1 &4).

Apart from Meesapulimala, Kolukkumalai is also known for trekking and camping in Munnar. I would say, it’s also a must-visit place on your next trip to Munnar.
