There are cardamom hills, there is cardamom hill reserve, there is the Western Ghats. Spices from Southern India was considered to have possessed world-class quality. Pepper is known as the King and cardamom is known as the queen of spices, and the best of them come from the Western Ghats of Southern India. Did you know that cardamom plantation was the Monopoly of the Travancore Kingdom that ruled over Southern Kerala for more than 400 years, yes along with the British towards the end.. It was so much revenue for the Kingdom, they could not have ever diluted it. What is quality when it comes to spices...size, color, taste, aroma.. you got to find it from the stories we tell.

Even thought we visited after the main harvest season, there were plenty of plants still available to look at. Our guide was so wonderful and really knew her stuff. We got to smell & taste a lot of different spices/ fruits. Absolutely worth it!

I had to study in detail about the different spices, herbs, their medicinal value and extracts made from the herbs and spices as part of a project and visited Spring Valley. Though I had to walk about 10 Kms, I must say that I got enough material to complete the project. The guide who accompanied me was well versed in explaining in detail about the spices, herbs, products of medicinal value etc which made my task easy. And the I really enjoyed the walk through the spice garden (forest), the fresh air, aroma of the spices etc gave a relaxation to mind and body. I am sure a walk through the spice garden will be a special experience for everyone.
