Itinerary Details

 

The journey starts from your chosen departure point within Munnar Town Hotel at 8am, where we will transport your party by 4 wheel drive jeep to the Kolukkumalai Tea Plantation.  The journey takes approximately 90 minutes to cover the 40kms, 10Kms of which are on a very rough track through dramatic scenery into the mountains.

 

The estate at 8000ft is reputedly the highest tea estate in the world and produces excellently flavoured teas.  Set amidst a backdrop of magnificent mountain scenery and with inspirational views all around, it is well worth the difficulty of access.  Due to this difficulty of access and remoteness you will find life for the tea estate workers is simple and evolves around their work, homes and family.

 

An afternoon visit to the tea factory can be arranged and for those clients wishing to make the most of the rejuvenating mountain air and scenery a guided one-hour walking tour around the estate is included in the tour.
