Kurangani, a remote village nestled in sylvan surroundings on the Western Ghats at Kottakudi village, in Bodi. This region remains an unexplored tourism spot.
As we trek, we will be able to see Kurangani village below. The trek route is reasonable and some places are hard to climb. Few streams are dried up due to failure in monsoon.
Although, Kurangani Hills is near Theni and Kolukkumalai Hills -- the highest hills for tea plantation in the world at an altitude close to 8,000 feet -- the place is still not known in the tourism circuit. However, several foreign tourists do come here and spend their time enjoying the nature.
Some nature lovers within the state also frequently visit Kurangani Hills for trekking and other related activities. Many film-makers too have been charmed by the nature here. Tamil films such as Alagar Samiyin Kuthurai, Myna and Kumki were shot on the Hills. The best months to explore the Hills are between August to December
Frequently changing weather, low-hanging clouds, chilly atmosphere and strong winds coupled with wide range of flora and fauna are the things to enjoy in the hills. One can spot Indian guars, barking deer, langurs, wild cats and birds.
However, the villagers warn about the presence of leopards and tigers. But we couldn't spot any wild animals except wild chicks, and birds.
