I went there because the driver made us stop by our way from Cochin to munnar.. I am sure he must have got some commissions from the owners. THe stupid thing was that we first paid for seeing the herbal garden, then the lady started pushing us to buy products from the shop. She kept poking us to buy "virality"... More

A very educating stop over on way to munnar. Our kids enjoyed it and were amazed at the types of plants and their benefits. The shop selling the lovely spices and oils was very good. The staff is well educated and helpful.

The lady that showed us around had great knowledge and was very amusing and spoke extremely good English which helped us Brits out. Our visit around the garden, as we were both interested and asked lots of questions, lasted around 45 minutes. Obviously, they... More

While going to Thekkady from Munnar we visited this place. There is a shop which owns spice gardens and also sells its produce. They also have a guided tour of their spice gardens. The fees for the visit is rather high i.e. Rs. 100/- per head irrespective of how many members are there in a group. However it is worth... More

I contacted one of Ayurvedic doctor who use to identify the product by smell and taste . He told me products are really good in quality and thus fetch higher price due to its purity. So I have changed my mind that although costly but really useful products.

We stopped here on our way to Thekkady from Munnar. Our guide Jomon Abraham gave us a very interesting tour of the garden. It's an excellent place to buy spices and Ayurvedic preparations.

As stated by many, most vehicles plying to/from Thekkady do stop in here. Not knowing what to expect we were met Ruby(our guide) who took us through the spice garden trip. A small garden with a lot of spices and herbal plants. The tour was informative and we loved the Cocoa Beans, Coffee, Cardamom plant and other interesting plants. The... More
