Kolukkumalai Tea Estate, Kottagudi

#1 of 15 in Things to do in Theni District
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.
