It is only a short walk and it was good to see the spices growing. There is shop to buy the products as you leave. An interesting place... More

Good place to get information on the spices and how they are grown, and maintained. Although this is only a small area only for demonstration and explaination purpose, but it is worth a stop, The only problem is the entry fees is too high for this 1 hour stop.

There are miraculous claims about the different plant groups with no evidence base . After the tour you are guided to a herb shop and shown these herbs in medicinal form , with cures from diabetes...

A very well maintained spice and herbal garden. We were really amazed to see so much variety of spices and herbals. They also have a spices stall which made us buy so much stuff :) Must visit while going to Munnar
