Actor Anarkali Marikar is a self-confessed lover of travelling who enjoys exploring unique places and their special culture. Anarkali often posts interesting videos from the beautiful locales that she visits on her Youtube channel. The pictures of the mesmerizing sunset from her recent trip to the splendid countryside of Vattavada has already become a social media favourite.
No matter how busy she is, the actress makes sure to set out for a trip whenever she gets some free time. Recently, Anarkali has shared a video on her Instagram page “from a beautiful camping site in Yellapetty, Munnar.”
Yellapetty is a scintillating hamlet, known for its incredible natural beauty, sharing the border with Tamil Nadu. The fabulous tea estates drape a magnificent greenery over the slopes. Yellapetty is around thirty-five kilometres away from the Munnar top station. You could also enjoy the majestic Mattupetty and Kundala dams on the way to Yellapetty.
Like Vattavada, Yellapetty too is an agricultural hamlet. The vast swathes of organic vegetable garden are the highlight of the countryside. Moreover, this is the perfect place to enjoy the scintillating beauty of sun sets in the calm evenings. Camping facilities are arranged for the tourists who reach here to enjoy the unique sights of Yellapetty. A stay atop the mountains would offer you a unique chance to enjoy the sparkling stars at night. Yellapetty is home to various species of flora and fauna, making it a desirable destination for the nature enthusiasts. Moreover, there are many splendid spots here that offer amazing background for photographs.
The thrilling hike through the mountain slopes to the eastern direction would lead you to the tent camp in Yellapetty. A direction board can be found at the entrance of the Devikulam Forest Division. The trekking begins at the mountain path that diverts to the lush tea estates on one side and the pristine forests on the other. The winter season in November, December and January is the best time to visit Yellapetty. The dew-covered savannahs of Yellapetty during the winter are truly a sight to behold!
