TravelPod Member ReviewsIgloo Nature Resort Munnar
Igloo Nature resort is just about decent place to stay at a reasonable price. It is close to nature and has some very good natural scenery. Kind of secluded from the main Munnar town but once you get used to the place you kind of like it. Food was average. Service was okay. Other facilities like Spa were average. Looks like is popular with tour operators - means you can drive a good bargain with them directly! Room Tip: Either go for a hut or level 2 room depending on your requirement

... last few hours on the boat taking in all the
captivating views before we were back in the madness of tuk tuks, buses and
hooting. Today was gonna be a travel day as we made our way up into the
mountains and hills to the tea plantations of Munnar. After a cruisy, mellow
bus driver on the hour journey between Allepey and Kottayam, there was nothing

mountains turned out to be a 5 ...

... and our guide filled us in on some of the more interesting tea facts. But what peaked my interest was the men scraping lichen off the rocks poking out of the tea fields. Apparently lichen is a sought after cooking additive – making its way into staples such as masala sauce. I can't imagine it's worth the effort, and the slow rate of growth means this fad is going to end fairly soon as the rocks are scraped clean.
Eventually, nearing 1pm, ...
... day to take a full day tour of the tea plantations.
The tour started at 8:30am, and went to numerous plantations, all in an amazing mountain setting. The tea trees are planted in such a way that the whole area looks like it is made up of green mosaic tiles. Unfortunately the pictures will not do it justice. We toured the tea factory, which started off with a video regarding the origins of tea growing in India. It surprised us when it ...
Today we went to a working tea factory in Kumily which was really interesting. We had a walk around the tea plantations and had a tour inside the factory. The factory produced 3 tonnes of tea per day. It opened in 1945 and has the same machinery inside. There was the most delicious smell of tea everywhere! This particular area doesn't export tea to any other countries, just to India States. The main attraction of Kumily is the Periyar Wildlife Park which has all sorts of ...
