This was one of our favorite spots during our stay in South India. Carmelia Haven is set on a cardamom and tea plantation on a beautiful lot in the hills of South India. Though it is a good 40-minute drive outside of Periyar, you don't want to be anywhere else when you're here. We did go to the Tiger Reserve...

I had tried Imodium and Lomotil to no avail. So I made an appointment for a free consultation with the ayurveda doctor. Her...
