Kumily, Kerala, South India
27.10.2012 - 27.10.2012
We journeyed up to the Cardamom Hills in Eastern Kerala near the border with the adjacent state, Tamil Nadu, to go to the tea plantations that are so famous there.
Here are some plantation workers taking leaves off of the tea bushes.
The plantation was absolutely beautiful.
We went for a tour of the plantation
And then for a tour of the tea processing plant. That plant smelled SO delicious!
Afterwards, we went to a Spice Plantation
We learned about all of the exotic fruits that are grown in the area: cocoa, cinnamon, coconuts, etc. as well as sustainable products such as bee honey, etc.
A rooftop accommodation over the spice plantation. It looked amazing!!
A view overtop the spice plantation...gotta keep those shoulders covered while in India
