Kolukkumalai Tea Estate is a 40 minute drive from Club Mahindra where I stayed. Leave early in the morning to witness the glorious and remarkable sunrise over Nilgiris. The sky turns from Violet to Orange to Light Pink. So many shades you will have trouble naming them! Reach early and enjoy a breathtaking view. One tip: There is a small... More

At early morning around 4.30 AM, we have started with a group of friends in a Jeep to the hill top to view the sunrise. The ride was adventurous and the view of sunrise from the hill top was awesome. Kolukkumalai sun rise is a must visit when you visit Munar. It was really amazing at the hill top.

I hiked messapulimala (2nd higest peak of south india) and did camping at kolukkumalai. It was awesome and breathtaking experience to been those hight. Night was freaking chilled because of cool wind flow blazing fast. If you are fitness freak and like hiking you should hike till messapulimala for amazing adventurous experience.

We opted to do the Jeep Drive knowing of the terrain but it turned out to be a longer drive than expected. 4 Hours of driving on the rocks can make your back pretty sore. We opted for a private jeep which was worth every penny. The views during the drive were fantastic. The tour guides here are very informative... More

The tea estates are breath-taking. The tea, amazing and the century-old tea factory, beautiful. The bone-jarring ride is worth avoiding, consider trekking it instead.

Great experience in bumpy rock roads on a jeep for an hour to reach there. The spot has tamilnadu and Kerala on each side. Echo point nearby was ok. The world's highest organic tea estate and factory was really worth visiting.

When the hotel staff adviced us that the ride can be quite bumpy and not recommended for people with back problems, we though they were exaggerating. But no, this is one of the bumpiest rides I've had ever - but it is all very worth it. After 8 km of back breaking ride in a 4x4 jeep you are ushered... More
