Meghamalai – A Plantation Bungalow experience
The Cloud Mountain Bungalow is situated on the border of the Periyar Tiger Reserve on the Eastern side in Tamil Nadu, about 85 km from Thekkady / Madurai in Kerala, 40 km off Chinnamanoor, on the Thekkady – Madurai Interstate Highway.
Located at Meghamalai, a 6000 acre tea plantation estate, the Bungalow has all the characteristics of a British colonial bungalow with landscaped gardens, tall trees in the courtyard and tea gardens all around.
Meghamalai (4500 ft asl) is also home to rare species of birds, flora and mammal life. Gaurs and Elephants are commonly sighted across the plantations. Meghamalai is perhaps the most cut off and least commercialized of all plantation townships with reserve forest on all sides and practically no shop or any hoarding or any commercial activity except the tea factory within 25 kms radius.
The Cloud Mountain Bungalow with just three rooms can be an excellent getaway for families, group of bird watchers, those interested in walking / trekking or anyone looking for a completely cut off and tranquil holiday.
