Trips and Itineraries for Suryanelli

The tour guide who was supposed to pick us up at Munnar dint turn up and asked us to come by auto to Suryanelli - 23 odd kms away otherwise the local commute from Munnar to Suryanelli is via Jeep costs Rs.30/- The first signs to the long sprawling tea estate appeared during our auto journey to Suryanelli and the view of Anayirankal reservoir from a distance was amazing....

Kottagudi, Tamil Nadu 625582, India
Our day started very early around 3.30 in morning and started journey with sleepy mind towards Kolukkumalai, highest tea plantation on the world.We heard about beauty of sunrises here and want to explore. The bumpy ride and roller coaster journey is enough to make you feel awake throughout the way. Remember you need to hire different jeep. If you don’t like bumpy rides, and having kids and old age people with you or spine problem, heart problem then, it’s better to avoid that part, because road condition is not good enough. Somehow, we reached, the place which is around 33 Km from Munnar and takes more than one hour to reach there. But once you reach this place aroma of freshly plucked tea leaves, gentle rolling tea gardensand floating clouds bowing down to kiss the misty mountain welcome you. We were lucky enough to see the sunrise. It was amazing sunrise in the peak of the mountain and you stand above the clouds. The organic tea plantation is amazing and we visited tea factory as well and as a tea lover I brought some packets of flavored tea. After an unforgettable experience, we were ready for another adventures point, Top station, again more than one hour journey. The journey up to the top station was twisted in every moment. At one twist we witnessed green fields of tea plants basking in the sunshine; and at another twist we saw mountain majestic mountains embellish with misty clouds. Tea gardens all around, at steep angles along the hill, the clouds climbing along the hills at great speed. We were lucky enough to see all the colors of nature in cloudy weather. Next and last destination was Kundala Lake, where we just walked on lakeside and enjoyed the weather. We came back to our resort and took the quick nap for while, packed our bag and hit the road for next destination Kumarakom. On the way we went paid spice garden, where our tourist guide showed the plantation of some spices and we also brought some of them. After 5 hours of sleepy journey we reached Kumarakom, we already booked homestay near the Vembanad Lake and fall asleep.

About Suryanelli

It was evening by the time we reached our lovely home stay nestled in the valley of Suryanelli Hills, 18 kms from Munnar.. We checked in and after a rejuvenating cup of tea headed to the Anayirangal Dam. As soon as we took the turn into the road that led to the dam we were stopped by some forest rangers and asked to head back. The reason being some 6-8 wild elephants that were spotted on the opposite side of the road. We clicked them from a far before heading back with mixed feelings -- happy to see the wild elephants but disappointed that we were unable to go to the dam. However we managed to enjoy its scenic beauty from the top.
