Home to a wide variety of Flora and Fauna, the hill station also sports a pristine ledge on the hill called the Kolukkumalai, which is one of the highest tea estates in the world.Apart from the dazzling beauty of nature, the place is also home to many birds and animals. The culmination of all these elements brings about an amazing beauty to this place, attracting nature lovers, photographers, trekkers and bird watchers alike. The trek starts from Chennai as you get picked up and are transferred to the starting point of the trail, which will be the Kuranjini Village. After freshening up, you will start the trek to reach the central station after a 7 km trek.

Enjoy in the scenic environs here, enjoy tea/coffee direct from the estate before calling it a night in the cozy tents. You will wake up the next day to an amazing sunrise over the hills with the calls of many birds residing in the area. From here, you will take another 7 km trek to the top station on the side of a hill in a zig-zag fashion. As you gain altitude from here, the view of the valley just keeps getting better.

Paradise on earth kind of a place. We did 7 km trek at a long stretch. It was not so tiring. The views from the top made us lost. We came across a lot of new birds. It was a great experience. Thank you guys.

The trek was recommended to me by one of my friends and I'd recommend this to everyone as it was really worth the time and the money. The feeling of walking above the clouds was really ethereal!

We went as a family but there were also solo travellers there and the experience was good for everyone I must say. We all got along with each other well, and the hospitality of the staff was great too. It was nice to find such a place as close as 50 kms from Chennai city, and we are planning to make this our usual city getaway spot.

Been living in Chennai all my life and had no clue that there were such nice places here. It was a comparatively difficult trek for me as a I was a beginner trekker, compared to my friends who have already trekked before, but our guide, Nachi, was super patient and made sure that everyone kept up and gave us rest breaks whenever necessary. The camp experience and the stay too were really comfortable and nice.

Worth for solo travellers as well as groups. The complete package is one of the best. Price is also very reasonable. Flawless service by the staff and representatives. Lots of pros than cons. weather was not in favour of us. Rained in the middle of activities. Still, we enjoyed the trip a lot.
