Spice Stories - Walking tour of Spices

There are cardamom hills, there is cardamom hill reserve, there is the Western Ghats. Spices from Southern India was considered to have possessed world-class quality. Pepper is known as the King and cardamom is known as the queen of spices, and the best of them come from the Western Ghats of Southern India. Did you know that cardamom plantation was the Monopoly of the Travancore Kingdom that ruled over Southern Kerala for more than 400 years, yes along with the British towards the end.. It was so much revenue for the Kingdom, they could not have ever diluted it. What is quality when it comes to spices...size, color, taste, aroma.. you got to find it from the stories we tell.

It was a nice boat trip through the Waters in the morning hours. We could spot some animals at a distance, but the journey was enjoyable. We liked that the staff was very strict and ensured that everyone wore the Life-jackets and nobody was allowed to move around.

the boats were very busy and it was almost impossible to take photos. You are allocated a seat and there are 4 seats in a row so it is pot luck as to whether you have a good seat or not. A little disappointed although we did see a few animals at a distance

We took the boat trip this morning and it was a shitshow. It was noisy, people standing up and moving in front of us all the time, people not wearing life jackets and the crew did nothing to stop it. Clearly haven’t learnt from the disaster they had in 2009. See my pictures for the evidence.

We went for a Jungle Trek through the wildlife sanctuary . Our lovely local guide showed us Gaur, Malabar Squirrels, Jungle fowl, wild pigs, a Malabar Wolf Spider and some tiny bats. No tigers of course, we were on a walking tour and they are notoriously hard to find, even much further in to the park.
