Anginda peak is a mountain in the Nilgiri Hills of the Western Ghats in Kerala, South India. It has an elevation of 2,383 metres (7,818 ft) and is the highest peak in Silent Valley National Park.[1] It is just south of Sispara pass, and forms the southernmost boundary of Mukurthi National Park in Tamil Nadu. There is an unobstructed view of Anginda from the 30 m observation tower at Sairandhri Visitors Center.

There is a population of the endemic and endangered Nilgiri Laughing-thrush at the Anginda-Sispara belt inside the Silent Valley National Park. Serious trekkers can take a 4-day trek route, starting from Mukkali through Sairandhri, Poochipara, Walakkad and Sispara to Anginda.
