Default Meghamalai - Eco Tourism / Tea Tourism / Farm tourism journey


Meghamalai is located in Tamil Nadu about 85 kilometers from Thekkadi
in Kerala, 43 kms

off Chinnamanoor, on the Thekkadi - Madurai Interstate Highway.
Once the exclusive preserve of a group of plantations, Meghamalai
today has become the

cynosure of every tourist. The largest plantation, the Highwavys
Group, is a tea

plantation owned previously by Hindustan Lever and today run
successfully by the

Woodbriar group.
Flanked on one side by the Periyar Tiger Reserve and on the other by
the proposed

Meghamalai Wildlife Sanctuary, the Highwavys group of Estates lie
ensconced in a

geographic depression shaped like a bowl, bordered by rising mountain
ranges on all

sides with a 7 kilometer lake winding across itself.
Meghamalai is also home to rare species of birds, flora and mammal
life. Wild Gaurs and

Elephants are commonly sighted across the few plantations but more so
within the

Highwavys Group of Estates.
