Trek to Sengottaraayar Malai, Coonoor Ooty

Sengottaraayar Malai, Coonoor Ooty
3 Days2 Nights

Event Overview

We drive past Wellington (the home of the Madras Regiment) into the expansive tea estates in Coonoor, Tamil Nadu. Segotaraayar Peak (1800 meters) is located right on the Border of Tamil Nadu and Kerala and overlooks The Palakad Silent valley on the south in the distance and Mukurthi National Park on the West. This range has a number of tribal settlements including the Irula, Toda and the Badaga communities.

The trek begins at the Irula hamlet called Mooperkaad bordering the forest. The trek to the peak takes us through mixed terrain including shola forest, tea and coffee estates. One of the features of this trek is that you will have the opportunity to spot wildlife including Gaur (Indian Bison), Barking deer, and come across plenty of signs of Sloth bears.

This trek is an excellent choice for first-time trekkers, nature photographers, children and corporate teams. We recommend this trek for anyone who would like to getaway from the city and have a laidback adventure over the weekend.
