Kolukkumalai - Munnar, India 

The small village of Kolukkumalai is famous for being home to one of the highest tea plantations in the world. The tea grown here has a special flavour and particular freshness, that is due to the high altitude it is grown in (8,000 feet above sea level). The factory at the centre of the plantation is a small building, that has remained unchanged since it was built by the british in the 1930′s. The plantation continues to use traditional a method of manufacturing tea, that ivolves withering, rolling, sieving, fermenting, drying, fiber extraction, and grading the tea leaves. 

In addition to the tea plantations, Kolukkumalai is a great place to hike and enjoy the amazing views on offer, particularly at sunrise and sunset. 

Every time I talk to people about travelling I get asked if I’m writing stuff down anywhere and truth is apart from random Instagram posts… I’m not.

I keep thinking about starting a travel blog, but will people actually even read it?

This is something very close to home for it and my dream job would be travelling and writing about it, so I guess I’m really scared of taking that leap and failing.

Idk, would you read the ramblings of someone in her mid-20s that works full-time and goes to grad school part time, but still fits in 6+ trips a year?
