Photographer's Note

The Kolukkumalai Tea Estate situated 35 bkm from the town of Munnar in Kerala,at an altitude of 8250 feet above sea level has the world's highest functioning tea factory. We set off on a cold January morning on some of the most incredibly bad roads to try and reach the summit. But the 2 hour bone jarring journey was well worth it as the view at the top is truly awesome. Standing there with the heavens above,the valley far below,surrounded by the hills,with the wind in my face and the gentle silence enveloping me,there was a moment of magic and enchantment when I realised how precious this beautiful planet is which we all call home.
