My driver stopped here on the way to Munnar. There is a quick tour that shows many really interesting plants, i had never seen a touch-me-not before. Afterwards they will try to sell you oils, spices and goods at a reasonable price. Good way to break up the drive and get to learn about the spice gardens.

We had already visited tea, coffee and cardamom plantations, but the compact garden here has a lot more spices, and so it was interesting for us as visitors from Europe. The tour was well conducted and umbrellas... More

This is just a garden for display of core ingredients used in the items sold by a shop. I mean you will feel good to see plants coco, cloves, cardamoms but not much if you belong to a place where all this easliy available. it's better to spend some more time at Tea gardens as the tickets were very costly...
