Kurumba! exhale it like a sigh, a mantra… In this one word is compressed the past and rich culture of a forgotten tribe! The kurumbas are one of the five ancient tribes of the nilgiris – the todas, kothas, kurumbas, irulas and badagas.
And we at kurumba village resort intend to keep it that way – the rain forests that surround the property are dark and deep; the stream that runs along the border of kurumba village resort is pure and pristine; and the mountains – tall and sentinel – guard the secrets of the past in their stony folds.
Ootacamund, queen of the hill stations, is only 32 km away while coonoor and kotagiri are other spots that visitors can explore at leisure. Scale the highest peak in south India – dodabetta – all of 8,649 ft; head out to mukurthi, another lush rainforest area; or the hills and dales of upper bhavani.
