HEAVEN ON EARTH
Situated on the interstate border between Kerala and Tamil Nadu in India, Kollukkumalai is a must visit destination for those visiting or wanting to visit the western ghats. Earlier an unexplored place, the place gained prominence and momentum of visitors after the release of malayalam movie Charlie, in which the protagonist speaks about experiencing snowfall in Meesapulimala hills. While Meesapuliama is another story, Kollukkumalai gained prominence alongwith Meesapulimala , as both peaks are situated nearby
HOW TO REACH
To reach Kolukkumalai you need to hire a jeep from Suryanelli tea estae near munnar, from where you will have to make a crazy yet memorable off road drive in local jeep
WHEN TO VISIT AND WHAT TO SEE
The best time to visit this place is around November to February, when the temperatures are cold and the rainy season has subdued. The sunrise at Kollukkumalai is a memorable experience one can't forget in a lifetime. You can see the sun rising from the clouds from below your feet. But, you have to wake up as early as 4 am in the morning and make an offroad journey through 9 kms of mudroads in the sizzling cold temperatures of the morning to gain this experience.
