The garden visit was very informative for me and my family. The tour guide inside the garden was very knowledgable and she was very informative about every tree/plant she offered to show us.

Visited this place on my way to Munnar. A big board indicating that they have won the trip advisor award 2013, is put up near their main entrance. Trip Advisor may please clear about the authenticity. Entry to the Organic Garden is through payment of guide fee which seems to be on the higher side. Could see a lot number... More

interesting place to know about spices, but they insist on buying and try to sell stuff. better to just visit and be careful in buying as you may get tempted to buy. prices are exorbitant.

Beautiful garden full of spices and herbs. Great opportunity to learn more about plants and their power. Friendly guide explains everything, starting from names and description of each specie to its utilisation. During the trip you can even taste some herbs.

The guide, Joice, spoke good English and was entertaining. We saw may spices plants growing including some that were completely new to me. We were obviously expected to buy some. The... More

We asked our driver to take us somewhere to get some spices and he took us to this shop. First , we had to pay 100 rupees/person for a 20 minutes tour of their herbal garden; it was interesting to see some exotic( to us!) plants like vanilla or cardamom but it was clear that it was nothing but a...
