If you were to sit down with us over a cup of coffee and ask 'I want to go somewhere different from what I am used to. I'd like a place that will make me re-think life, a place that will let me feel my soul, a place that will put me at peace & let me be happy without any reason, a place that will make me feel the elements. Someplace not very well touristed, with a bit of adventure and the unknown. Where would you suggest? MEGAMALAI it would be!!
Known to few and explored by fewer, Megamalai is an exquisite hillstation located in the Western Ghats of Theni District at an elevation of 1500 meters above sea level. Littered with breathtaking landscapes, rich flora & fauna, tea estates, cardamom plantations and dams, Magamalai is arguably one of the most beautiful hillstations in South India. As the name suggests it is the place where clouds meet the mountains.
Also popularly know as 'High Wavys' Megamalai has restricted access with very few tourist accomodation which has helped Megamalai shield itself from tourists incursion.
So now you know the place. How do you take in all the beauty of Magamalai without leaving a trace? By camping ofcourse.
