  • Address: Gudalur, India

Gudalur(Tamil: கூடலூர்) is a Municipality town and taluk in Nilgiris district in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. In 2011, the town had a population of 50000. Gudalur is a picturesque green valley on the way from Mysore to Ooty. It is a gateway to three states, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka lying equidistant from both Kerala and Karnataka. Though the history of the name has been lost, it is the place where all of the three states’ boundaries meet.

Tea plantations dot the whole region, and the regional economy is heavily dependent on the tea industry. However, this is a place rich in flora and fauna with a variety of hill crops, though lower altitude crops such as paddy and coconut also flourish here. This area was an offspring to the exploration done by the British during the pre-independence period to cultivate tea.
