Day 06 (16.11.2012)
Kolukkumalai , Kerala, India
Located high on the slopes of Meeshapulimala, Kolukkumalai is arguably the estate with the highest grown tea in the world! Started in the early 1900s the estate produces tea using the orthodox methood in the time tested tea factory. Little has changed here since the colonial planters left leaving behind their legacy of one of the best quality tea you can get in South India.
Though known for it's special orthodox tea Kolukkumalai Estate is now venturing into another of it's unique products....nature, great mountain views and excellent opportunities for walks in the hills. Kolukkumalai gets a fair number of day visitors to enjoy the spectacular sunrise over the Palani hills, it's cool climate and of course visit to the factory where tea is still made using the orthodox method. What most day visitors miss is the opportunity to walk the hills above the estate and maybe a trek up Meeshapulimali, an imposing peak at an elevation of 2640meters (8661 feet) above sea level!
Accommodation facilities are available either at the guesthouse in Suryanelly that is in comfortable rooms with modern facilities or at the Hut on estate in simple refurbished workers accommodation. Kolukkumalai is an ideal spot to be for anyone looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of Munnar town and enjoy life on a tea estate, as it originally was!
Kolukkumalai is accessable only be jeep or on foot across the mountains. Kolukkumalai is a paradise for nature lovers with a variety of flora and fauna endemic to the area and opportunities to walk up it's slope for some spectacular scenery of the peaks and swirling clouds below...

Petit exercice sans prétention, avec réflecteur blanc. Une toute première expérience...
Heureusement qu'il y a les cours sinon, je sais pas où je trouverais le temps pour la photo :-).
A second shot of the amazing tea fields at Munnar. I didn't get as much chance to photograph up there as I would have liked. Our driver didn't want to keep stopping and we were on far too tight a schedule.
Tea pickers in a tea garden near the town of Hashimara in the north-eastern corner of the state of West Bengal in India.I was recently travelling in the Dooars area of West Bengal famous for its forests and its lush green tea gardens.
Tea is an aromatic beverage commonly prepared by pouring hot or boiling water over cured leaves of the Camellia sinensis, an evergreen shrub native to Asia.
