    We have tried the special tea from there and it was the tastiest ever. Fresh, natural tea you get there. The tent stay was also peaceful amidst with bonfire. It was cold outside, so we had to be covered whole night. The dinner and breakfast was simple but nice. Don’t expect luxurious way of stay and food there. It is very sensitive location as the nature plays a great role in the native people’s lives.

    I took the best photographs of the entire location because it was so beautiful. The tea estate spreads in a large area. The hike to the top of the tea estate will give you happiness. The routes are rough, through the natural pathways. Insects will be there to disturb but I enjoyed being closer to nature.

    The routes to the location was smooth but you have to face some challenging hairpin bends. It was the trickiest part of the tour. There were the steep routes through the forests, the walk through it was a little bit challenging. But the mist covered tea estates were refreshing.

    An awesome place with mist covered atmosphere and large forests in the surrounding. I wish I was living somewhere near to the place. Always heard the soothing music played by the nature. Transportation from Bangalore was also good.
