His knowledge of all the plants seems endless and he shares this with a lot of enthusiasm and humour. If you stay in Kumily, definitely go see this spice garden!

We were shown round the spice garden by a delightful young woman who was very well informed. It was fascinating to see how spices which are so familiar to us are grown. The shop was well stocked - I only wish I had bought more!

This is a place to visit if you love nature. The host Mr Abraham is very friendly guy and is enthusiast in showing around his garden. He has some endangered species of plants. It's a worth walk to take!
