"Top Station, the highest point in Munnar, is positioned in the Kannan Devan Hills at a height of 1700 metres above the sea level. This captivating spot is most popular for the rare Neelakurinji plants, which bloom only once in 12 years, and envelope the hills in a bright blue colour.

The vantage point is also the western entrance to the famous Palani Hills Wildlife Sanctuary and National Park. During the early 1990s, it was a significant trade centre for delivery of tea from Munnar in Kerala to Bodinayakkanur in Tamil Nadu. A reminiscent of this is the old ropeway station (connecting tea estates to the foothills), presently in ruins.

Owing to its strategic location, on the borders of Kerala and Tamil Nadu, the site offers a panoramic view of the splendid Western Ghats. The town of Munnar, replete with verdant forests, rolling hills as well as tea, coffee and spice plantations, appears as a green carpet from this view point. It is mostly clad with mist, but when the atmosphere is clear, visitors can even see some parts of the district of Madurai of Tamil Nadu from here. The ideal time to visit Top Station is during the months of November through May."
