Slowly coming to be known as the Ooty of the poor, Manjolai includes places like Kaakkaachi, Naalumukku,oothu and Kuthiraivetti. It is situated at a distance of 57 km from Tirunelveli, a major city in the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu. The Bombay Burma Trading Corporation's tea plantations constitute a major portion of this hill station. Manjolai boasts a handful of scenic view points and waterfalls, beautiful meadows and lush woods. Treks into the forests can be a wild life tourist's dream come true as one is sure to get a glimpse or more of the bison and deer and other wild animals that abound in the area. More than anything, the peace and tranquility of the area that is miraculously still unknown to many, comes as a welcome change for urbanites unearthing this scenic location for a holiday.
