We reached early and waited for first rays of sun which light up the clouds. The journey is quite adventurous and difficult as the way is all rocky and only... More

As already commented by other reviewers, the 1hr jeep ride is very, very bumpy (return cost around ₹3,000). You may be able to ask the driver to stop and take photos / soak up the spectacular views along the way (we stopped multiple times on our ride down from the estate). The c1950s tea factory built is interesting and worth... More

One with BackPain is sure to suffer. After a 1.5Hr. journey through the dingy roads we reach the top point . One of the Ancient Tea Factory is present... More

One can reach the peak hiring a jeep because the 15-20 km way is not made for the cars. at peak one can see Tamilnadu state at one side and Kerala on other. Beauty of the place is out of world. Sunrise is worth watching.
