Located on the Annamalai hill ranges at more than 3400 feet above sea level, Valparai is a well-known hill station surrounded by tea estates, protected forests and steep valleys. The pleasant weather of the city is said to be suitable for the cultivation of Tea, hence there are more than 50 tea estates in the vicinity. Located close to the elephant corridor, it is a favourite habitat of Jumbos and every now and then they can be seen relaxing in the tea estates. The approach road to the city constructed on a steep and narrow mountain face with many hairpin bends enthrals the travellers. Great staying options, fantastic weather, bountiful nature and plenty of rain make Valparai an attractive place to visit. Valparai is about 105 kilometres from Coimbatore.
