    Tea Gardens of Munnar
    Whether you're interested in tea, photography, or simply enjoying nature's beauty, Munnar Tea Gardens is a must-visit destination. The tea plantations and landscapes in Munnar offer a truly breathtaking experience. There are vast tea plantations that cover the hills. The different shades of green and the well-maintained gardens make it a paradise for nature photographers. If you're a fan of tea, this is the place to be. You can enjoy a variety of teas and even learn how to add flavours to your chai. Make sure to taste some of the local teas to experience their unique flavours. The presence of chocolate factories adds another dimension to your visit. You can not only see the tea being cultivated but also indulge in some delicious chocolates. While many tea plantations are private properties and not open to visitors, some allow tourists, and some even offer tea-tasting experiences. It's essential to check the plantation's policies before planning your visit. Exploring the tea gardens through a drive will be the best option. Make sure to check the tea you're buying if you plan to purchase some. It's advisable to have a basic understanding of tea identification to ensure you get the quality you desire. The most beautiful tea gardens in Munnar are: Kanan Devan Hills Plantations, Nallatanni Estate Kolukkumalai Tea Estate (highest tea garden in the country) Sevenmallay Tea Estate Pallivasal Tea Garden Lockhart Tea Estate

    A lovely cup of tea!
    We spent several very interesting hours watching the process to give everyone their cup of tea! Firstly there is a film which gives the background history. The set up which is a village of workers and includes hospital, Nursery, school and housing. A job for life ! The tea gardens are all around, miles and miles of small hills covered in tea. It is a very skilful job knowing which leaf to take. We went around the factory seeing the processes involved. The staff showing us fiercely proud. At the end we had a cup of tea of course and just like theme parks the obligatory shop on the way out!

    Wonderful tea gardens
    We visited tea gardens during our trip from munnar to Thekkady. Tea garden owner charged Rs. 50/- for per person visit for that. Although it's nothing in front of scenic beauty. Musu visits the tea gardens.

The fields of tea are everywhere in this region, so all you need to do is look out of the car window. It's a pretty vista, with rolling hills.

One of the most beautiful experiences I have had in India. The hill slopes are covered with neatly manicured tea bushes. Walking among them is a delight.

Roads were fantastic and so drivable . Loved the fact that there was no signal most of the time 😅 and the way the clouds enter your room is also a sight to be enjoyed and just soak in !

If you have never seen tea plantations and live in the hot tropical zone, I can imagine Munnar feels like paradise. If you have worked as a tea picker in the Munnar region all your life and live in a simple shack struggling to keep dry during the monsoon rains, your perpsective might be very different.

I wonder how the landscape looked like before the tea estates were established. Now wildlife has been pushed back to the very small wild margins of the plantations high in the hills. The original ecosystems were severely damaged. Perhaps time to at least give some of the land back. The general trend however is the other way. I observed many slopes being prepared for further extentions of the tea 'gardens'.
