Mountain Trek

* Trek through spice plantations & high altitude forests

* Ridge walking at Chaturangapara

* Visit to Worlds Highest Tea Plantation

* Camping in South India's highest campsite

Day 1: Pushpakandam. We start our trek from Kumbummedu. We will follow the jeep trail to Ramakelmedu, where we have spectacular views of the vast plains of neighbouring Tamilnadu. Massive statues of Kuruvan & Kurathy – two legendary tribal figures - make up the backdrop to the magnificent views below. The route is interspersed with tiny spice growing hamlets where the majority of spices of Kerala are grown. We will continue our walk through these small villages and farmlands until we reach our camp.  Overnight: Purshpakandam Camp

Day 2: Chaturangapara.   After breakfast we start our trek through cardamom and pepper plantations. This would make an excellent opportunity as you can see firsthand to learn about how these spices are grown from the local trackers who will be accompanying you. 
Overnight: Chaturangpara Camp.

Day3: Shantanpara.  We will start today’s challenging trek through sholas and cardamom forests that abound here. This is the capital of the world’s spice trade, known for centuries as the Cardamom Hills. We will walk from Chaturangapara through thick cardamom forests and isolated spice growing villages. En route we will also be walking though great swathes of grasslands through the spine of the mountains with spectacular views of the plains of Tamilnadu thousands of feet below. Overnight: Shantanpara Camp.

Day4: Suryanelli. The day's trek is mainly around the Mathikettan Shola National Park, home to a wide variety of flora and fauna including the Malabar Giant Squirrel, gaur, sambar and elephants. We will start our descend through tea plantations until we reach the picturesque Anaerangal lake, meaning “The lake Where the Elephants Come Down” - a vast expanse of water is amidst a forest where elephants have come down for millennium for grazing and water. Snaking across a large area, this lake is placid and beautiful and a source of water for farmers downstream. Many tribal colonies have sprung up around it to farm for spices and cardamom which grow abundantly in the salubrious climate here. We will arrive at the lakeside camp by late afternoon.  Overnight: Suryanelli Camp.

Day 5: Kurangini.   We will transfer to arrive at the world’s highest tea estate – Kolukumalai – and visit the tea factory. After the visit, we will start the trek to Kornagini camp for a well earned rest and to prepare for the great challenges in the coming days.  Overnight: Kurangini Camp. 

Day 6 :Top Station.   An early start to tackle this very challenging day as we ascend from 1000m to  over 2200m at Top Station. Top Station, so named after the erstwhile ropeway station for transporting tea to the factories in the plains of Tamilnadu, has a spectacular view of the plains below and of Kodaikanal, the hill station atop the Palani ranges across the hills.  Overnight: Top Station camp. 

Day 7 :Ellappatti.   Today is an easier day as we pass through tea estates and Eucalyptus plantations before ending at the Ellappatti camp, near a patch of high altitude rain forest.  Overnight: Ellappatti Camp.

Day 8 : Rodo Valley. We start early and walk through some of the more pristine areas of the Western Ghats. This is also one of the highest regions of these mountains. The rugged mountain trails form the backdrop to an exciting trek till we reach our camp at 2200m.  Overnight: Rodo Valley Camp

Day 9 :Meesapulimala Trek. The final day of the trek takes us to Meesapulimala, at 2640m - the second highest peak in the Western Ghats. The trek passes through sholas and mountain streams which criss-cross the area. The area is also known for its wildlife – notably elephants, sambar, sloth bear and the Nilgiri tahr. When we reach the top, we stop for a rest and enjoy the panoramic views. At the end of the day’s trekking we trek back to Rodo Valley to take a well reserved rest at the camp and also celebrate the long trek through the Cardamom Hills.  Overnight: Rodo Valley Camp 

Day 10: Depart. After an early breakfast, we will walk down to Silent valley from where we depart.

Tariff: US$ 560 per person, based on TWIN share & a minimum 4 people travelling
