kurangani3 kurangani2

Kurangani Hills near Bodi in Theni district is a perfect place for trekkers as well as nature enthus. The 12 km hike from Kurangani village to Top Station through Central village is a journey to be cherished. The trekking route here is covered with the dense woods and plain grasslands of Kurangani Hills.

Although, Kurangani Hill is near the famous Kolukkumalai Hills, which is the highest place for tea plantation in the world at an altitude close to 8,000 feet , the place is still not known in the tourism circuit. However, several foreign tourists do come here. Some nature lovers within the state also frequently visit Kurangani Hills. Film-makers too have been charmed by the nature here.

Frequently changing weather, low-hanging clouds, chilly atmosphere and strong winds coupled with wide range of flora and fauna are the things to enjoy in the hills. It takes four to five hours to complete the trekking from Kurangani village to Top station, whereas two-and-a-half hours for the return trip.
Trekkers often spot Indian guars, barking deer, langurs, wild cats and sometimes the presence of leopards and tigers.

Top Station offers a panoramic view of the majestic Western Ghats. The rare Neelakurinji (Strobilanthus), for which the destination is popular, blooms once in twelve year.
