Very nice slopes. Great drive but hurts the back since there are no proper roads and it's a drive over stones. Once at the top, the views are simply amazing. Takes about 4hours from the start of the trip but very adventurous and worth it.

We hired a jeep from our hotel to go here early in the morning to see the sunrise between the mountains. The sunrise was very beautiful. After the sunrise, we also visited the tea factory which was built almost a century earlier. This is a must visit for all but I would recommend that people who get very nauseous to... More

The ride by Jeep from Suryanalle to Kolukkumalai costs about Rs 1800. Once the jeep enters the tea estate, the roads are bad. All up the hill, the roads were just bolders strewn about from the British era roads. The ride was rough...jerky. No safety issues as there were no steep drops on either side for the majority of the... More

the ride up to this place is long and EXTREMELY bumpy. the ladies in my group were warned by two separate women to wear sports bras, and given the bumpiness of the ride I can understand why. However once there the tour of the tea factory was very interesting, and the views were wonderful. It's hard to believe folks can... More

This peaceful green tea estate up in the hills is quite something to behold. Silent except for birdsong and the click of tea shears, it's a great temperate getaway with an extraordinary traditional tea factory as well.
