Create an itinerary including Kolukkumalai Tea Estate
Visit the highest tea plantation in the world at Kolukkumalai Tea Estate. Sitting at 2,170 m (7,130 ft) above sea level, this attraction requires quite a journey to reach, so count on taking a jeep across muddy and bumpy roads. Learn the plantation's traditional, orthodox tea-making process, which includes withering, rolling, sieving, fermenting, and more. With breathtaking views of rugged terrain and endless hiking trails, you may be tempted to stay overnight. Check out the attraction's facilities, including a range of options, from modern rooms to workers' accommodation.

  • Wonderful experience with jeep safari through the middle of tea estates. One of the best off road safari in munnar.We could explore variety of flora and fauna. Best place for sun rise.As per feb 2022 jeep safari rated Rs2000. We could reach 7130feet ht. Once we reach at the top we could also have a tour of kulukkumalai tea estates ( world's highest orthodox organic tea estate)but separate entry fee is there.
  • It's a beautiful experience. Loved the route to reach there. The bumpy ride was a unique experience for us especially for our daughter. She enjoyed the most. I am amazed to see how mankind thinks with so much precision about making a pathway in midst of such steep mountain. A must visit place
