“I love to capture the very essence of a life moment, entwined with a story.” Navaneeth Kishor.
This is a remote Munnar destination, an hour's walk from the nearest motorable road. This breathtaking location provides a panoramic view of the majestic Western Ghats and the Theni district valley.
The Top Station, on the left, served as a transshipment point for tea deliveries from Munnar to Bodinayakkanur. It was also a terminal railway station between Munnar and Kundalai, built in 1902.
The Kolukkumalai, on the right, is home to the world's highest tea plantations.
