Kolukkumalai Trekking is an excellent option for people looking to trek up a high peak without the long ascent. The walk starts from the Mountain Hut and traverse through tea estates, shoal forest and grassland. It is the opportunity for a spot of bird watching and looking for some rare plants. The world's highest tea estate is located at Kolukkumalai. You can have a relaxed visit of the plantation and the factory. During your time at the estate you will have the opportunity to pick tea with the workers, process it at the factory and can carry home a small pack of tea as a memento of your visit at Kolukkumalai Tea Estate. A walk with a naturalist is a rewarding experience for people looking for endemic and regional birds of the high ranges. Your naturalist will be an experienced local person who would know exactly where to visit to look for any specific bird species that you are looking for. The Meeshapulimalai trek is a very popular trek for people looking to walk up a tall peak. At 2636 meters Meeshapulimalai is arguably the second highest peak after Anaimudi (which incidentally is in the highly protected Eravikulam National and out of bounds to visitors) You can choose to start the Meesapulimali Trek from either the Kolukkumalai Mountain Hut or the Silent Valley Tea Estate. You also have the option of returning to the starting point of the trek on completion of the trek or walk down the other side. If you start walking from Kolukkumalai then you could finish the trek at Silent Valley Estate/ Rhodovalley or vice-versa. To get to the top you traverse through diverse terrain ranging from carpets of tea bushes to lush evergreen shoals, pine forests managed by KFDC and the undulating
