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. Prepare to be mesmerized by breathtaking panoramic vistas of Kerala's towering hills and Tamil Nadu's vast plains, all enveloped in a mesmerizing sea of clouds.

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. Wander through the lush green meadows of Lakkam Waterfalls, where cascading waters create a symphony of sounds. And don't miss a visit to Top Station, the highest point in Munnar, where panoramic vistas await.

What’s life without adventure? Isn’t the real purpose of life to travel, to experience new places, and witness the sunrise from new mountaintops? This thought is what united Jatin and Tarun over a cup of chai, in spite of being from two unrelated backgrounds (CA and IT). They knew each other since the time Jatin was helping Tarun learn the ways of the wilderness through weekend treks and outings with another traveling group. Their love for traveling and trekking together motivated them to start something of their own. Thus was born “Plan The Unplanned”, where travel goals come true. Under the Companies Act, Plan The Unplanned is incorporated as Unplanned Journeys Private Limited They started their journey on unsteady ground, much like any other company, but they shared an infatuation for travel and adventure with their customers, which amplified their determination, and thus, Plan the Unplanned family keeps getting bigger every day! Just about any travel idea can come alive with Plan The Unplanned…treks, adventure activities like rock climbing, kayaking, rafting, backpacking trips across the country, cultural outings, photo walks; everything that fellow travelers need, to explore the great outdoors together.
