Kolukkumalai Munnar Tour: A Journey to the Kashmir of South India

Embark on a captivating adventure to Kollukumalai, the Kashmir of South India, nestled amidst the misty peaks of Munnar. This offbeat destination, located 35 kilometres from Munnar in the Theni district of Tamil Nadu, is home to the highest tea plantations in the world, perched at an astounding height of 7,000 feet above sea level.

Your journey to Kollukumalai begins in the charming town of Suryanelli, where you will hop on a thrilling jeep ride through a 10-kilometre unpaved road, traversing rugged terrain and verdant landscapes. Upon arrival at Kolukkumalai, you will be greeted by the iconic colonial-era tea factory, where you can witness the traditional tea-making process and indulge in a delightful cup of freshly brewed tea.

The highlight of your Kollukumalai escapade is the optional sunrise trek, which commences at 4:30 AM. Ascend the gentle slopes, enveloped by the cool morning mist, and witness the breathtaking spectacle of the sun painting the sky with hues of gold and orange. From the summit, soak in the panoramic vistas of the surrounding mountains and valleys, a sight that will forever be etched in your memory.

Aside from Kolukkumalai's natural splendour, Munnar offers a plethora of sightseeing gems. Explore the serene beauty of Echo Point, where your whispers reverberate amidst the tranquil surroundings.
