"Loved the experience! The accommodation is clean and comfortable. The plantation is serene and cycling in those ridges was very satisfying. The organisers are very cordial and friendly and the food is homemade so delicious. After cycling for half a day, you spend the night under the stars, sitting around a bonfire and end the day with a fitful sleep in the tent. A memorable experience and extremely rejuvenating."
