About

Of course, you must be wondering how this name happened?! Well, it’s called Top Station trek since it involves trekking up to the highest altitude station in this region. The hills of Kurangani, located at a distance from Munnar, welcome each trekker into their thick jungles, unexplored by the loops of the conventional traveling circuit. You’ll walk down the trail and cross tea estates and coffee plantations, apart from gusty waterfalls and picturesque valleys from Kurangani to the Top Station.


It’s an overnight journey from Bangalore and you would be speechless to see that such a gorgeous abode exists, about which you barely knew. The local tribes have made this place home, and you won’t see many people on this trail. That’s one of the best things for those who wish to ditch the crowd! You might be able to relate to this place as films like ‘Alagar Samiyin Kutharai’, ‘Kumki’ and the more recent ‘Myna’ have been shot around the region.


There are two different routes on this trail. One leads you to Top Station en route Central Station while the other takes you on an 8,000 feet ascent to Kolukumalai – the world’s tallest standing tea estate that lies in this region. If you start at Kurangani Village, it is a 12-kilometer trek to Top Station (through Central Station). With this trail, you also have the option of starting from Munnar in Kerala. Walk through the densely wooded area toward the grassland expanse of Kurangani Hills until you finally reach the border of Theni. The trek down this trail would be an absolutely thrilling experience.
