Amazing walk from tea plantations to mountain top We had a great time walking through the tea plantations and trying to spot elephants (no luck). Sanish knows the place very well, is very friendly and speaks English very well too. He gave great indications about plants, animals, life in Munnar. We reached a mountain top with awesome views. Thank you!
Excellent tour and really helpful company We did a half day trek through the tea plantations and forests. The route was great - incredible views and a mix of different terrains (forest, grassland and plantations) which kept it interesting. Our guide Vijay was awesome and pointed out all of the wild growing fruits and spices. The company manager was really helpful too, organising a taxi for us to Allepey and finding another person going that way, to help us keep the costs low. Would definitely recommend, although it’s worth noting that it’s quite a climb for people who aren’t so steady on their feet.
The trek with my trekking guide Mr. Vijayan was a great experience! We started climbing uphill through a tough terrain with a beautiful view. The trek has its challenges with thick foliage, small rough paths, leeches and a steep elevation but that also makes it exciting for trekkers looking for an adventure! Mr Vijayan is well prepared with salt to combat leeches and is seasoned with 19 years of experience of guiding trekkers. He is quite knowledgeable and keeps giving you bits of infory along the way. After half the trek, the major elevation ends and you start to descend, this has its own challenges as coming downhill is not necessarily an easy task. Finally you enter the tea gardens where the trek becomes more relaxed and the view beautiful.
Nice trekking with great guide; We went on a (5 hours) trekking through the tea plantations with Saneesh. He is an amazing guide and speaks English very well! He knows a lot about the flora and fauna in Munnar. After the trek he proposed to bring us to a spice garden and to drink a coffee at a nice view point. Very welcoming!
We had an amazing hike with our guide Vijay. He was very knowledgeable, patient and he has amazing photography skills too. He made some really nice pictures of our hike. The trek itself is definitely worth doing. The view on top is spectacular and the trek itself is a nice work-out.
