Kolukkumalai Sunrise Trekking And Camping

Hosted by S. Saravanan

Kerala, Munnar 5.0

Verified Campsite


Catch sunrise at the world’s highest tea plantation!

Kolukkumalai is only accessible by jeeps because of the rugged terrain. Walking up this route is not permitted. Jeeps are available from the town of Suryanelli and it takes you about 2 hours to reach the drop-off point after which you trek for a short distance. Suryanelli eco-camp village is situated close to Suryanelli tea plantation and Suryanelli town. It is a beautiful campsite overlooking the valley which gives a beautiful valley view. We have very comfortable tents with sleeping gear provided. This camping is suitable for couples, family and solo travellers.

It's just a calm and cool place to be spent with loved one's. They also arranged to see Kolukumalai sunrise for this price!

Stayed here 2 nights, it was an awesome way to experience Munnar for the first time. You'll be in the thick of the tea plantation in a very remote, peaceful setting. Tents and the campsite were clean and comfortable. Loved the view at the early morning sunrise spot where they took us!
