Welcome to Megamalai
Megamalai is an emerging tourist destination and is near other holiday destinations. It is an undiscovered eco paradise with many attractions. Trek through virgin forests and rich tea estates, savour the picturesque landscapes of the countryside from the many viewpoints, enjoy a quite moment at the secluded dams and wash off your fatigue at the pristine waterfalls. This land is at its unexplored best as the government has made it open to public just three years ago. The treks through the forests and the tea estates promise to be thrilling what with the probability of sighting animals such as Indian Gaurs, wild boars, elephants, Leopards and even tigers.
There are some places you think are beautiful, some much more than others and some that leave you feeling all comparisons are inane. Megamalai Trip will make all comparisons inane and leave you amazed by its absolute beauty. The Views are breathtaking, the climate perfect. The serene lake and the beckoning mountains ranges are perhaps the best `real' description of paradise. Amidst the natural beauty, it is also about wildlife sightings, treks, and picturesque walks, camping out on a mountain cliff or bathing in a waterfall.
To wake up to the call of a distant elephant trumpet, to walk beside the lake for miles across undulating hills, to walk past an elephant skull to a private waterfall or to simply sit atop a grassy cliff and be in communion with mountain peaks all around, are some other things that will become forever locked within your memory for a long, long time. Whoever described paradise must have been here before!
