Megamalai Tourism : Have you ever been to a tourist place that is nested with clouds? Well I’m not talking about the honeymoon tourist places but a non-commercial mountain filled with teas instead of tourists. I’m going to share my personal view on Megamalai tourism and some interesting tourist information on Megamalai that you must also know if you’re planning to visit Megamalai soon.
As you all know that the lockdown has been lifted in Tamil Nadu, We’d advice tourist going to Megamalai to be responsible so that Megamalai tourism stays safe.

If you’re lazy then scroll to the end and watch our video on Megamalai tourism.
How to Reach Megamalai :
Trusting Google maps is one of the worst decision for every traveller out there sometime it gives us a nightmare. Tourism in Megamalai is under-developed and so Megamalai is one such location which isn’t plotted correctly in Google maps.
Me with my friends went on a day trip to Megamalai from Ramakkalmedu which is not so far from there if the map showed us the right directions. There’s limited bus service for Megamalai as this place is built for the purpose of tea cultivation and not for Tourism in Megamalai. If you’re driving to Megamalai then look for ‘Highwavys Dam’ in Google maps.
Note : There’s a checkpost in the foothills of Megamalai which closes before 6 P.M and no one is allowed after.
Resorts in Megamalai :
For the purpose of Megamalai Tourism & Tourist’s convenience, There are several accommodation facilities available in Megamalai. If you’re looking for a budget friendly stay then you can book the Govt. lodge in Megamalai. But who wants to travel so far and just stay in a small lodge? There’s lot of beautiful resorts available in Megamalai just few kms away from the city.
Check meghamalai cottages booking .

Places to Visit in Megamalai :
Don’t be disappointed because Megamalai is not a commercial tourist place so you’d have to go without any expectations. Now, That being said there are few places where you can stop-by and enjoy the landscape view of Megamalai.
I don’t want to lie or exaggerate about the places in Megamalai, so this isn’t for you if you’re looking for a costly restaurant to eat or boating or a famous shooting spot. But,
If you are a backpacker, a trekker or a adventurous traveller who’d appreciate the simpleness of the nature then you’ll enjoy Megamalai tourism.
Activities to do in Megamalai :
Obviously, This is a big tea cultivation area so the first thing to do there is try a local made hot tea cultivated from their own plantations.
If you’re with friends or family then you can enjoy watching the stars & listening to the wild sounds along with a campfire party.
If you love riding then take your SUV or mountain bikes to the off-roads of Megamalai and feed your adrenaline rush.
Finally, you can trek inside the mountains within the allowed range and fill your thirst for adventure.
The perennial falls ‘Suruli’ gathers the water from Megamalai, So you can visit the falls which is little away from Megamalai.
How safe is Megamalai?
Wild animals like Elephants are often spotted in the roads of Megamalai and if you’re trying to do stupid things on the road then Megamalai is not a safe bet for you.
Otherwise, Megamalai is safe for women and solo travellers as most of the people over there are friendly and humble.
