n Tamil it is known as" Paccha Kumachi" meaning "Green Peaks" High Wavys'is locally referred to as Meghamalai- meaning hills covered with clouds.

The word 'High Wavys', used since the late 1920's invariably has been derived to describe the high undulating range of hills and mountains, steep and precipitous as seen from the plains.

Geographically High Wavys' forms part of the Varushanad Range of hills, a part of the Western Ghats.

History :

Geographically High Wavys' forms part of the Varushanad Range of hills, a part of the Western Ghats.

Probably the earliest reference of High Wavys'is in the British Imperial Gazetteer Maps which dates back to 1920. The location was very approximate in the said maps, when land was being surveyed for Cinchona plantations by Messrs. E. Blatter and Prof. F.Hallberg. The essence of all the information derived from these maps, in the gazetteer's own words:

"The High Wavys'is the least known part of the hills of Madurai, and is infested with elephants and is the source of the Shurily river overrun with dark impenetrable forest" namely as Madras Tea Estate.

There is a new addition to the accommodation availability in Meghamalai. People wishing to stay overnight can contact Mr. Sargunam on 09487023533 / 09788938612 who provides a clean and decent guest house with all meals as per order. He can accommodate a maximum of 12 guests. I would recommend him for his cleanliness and homely atmosphere, though the place is about 5 kms. before Megamalai dam & lake on the Chinnamanur - Meghamalai main road. If you have your own car then this should suit well.
