Beautiful place. We should go there in the early morning, to see the sunrise.
It was just amazing. we could see the sunrise and feel the dawn. I recommend everyone this place as must see spot on earth...
Unbelievable drive on uneven terrain, the drive itself adventurous. It's around 7000ft above Sea-level. Bit colder late evening. Better be equipped with protective clothing. Sunset or full Moon is the best background for your DP photos.
This tea estate was constructed by Britishers and amazing thing about this is that all the equipment's are still running perfectly . This tea plantation are the highest tea growing estates in the world and they used traditional method for making tea leaves. As the tea is grown at higher altitude insect attack is not there .... You see the process of tea making in the tea factory.. Once upon a time many tea workers were working now this is reduced to very low.. earlier they were cultivating tea in 1500 acres and now its only 300 acres due to the lack of workers and low wage , less accessibility and no schools , hospitals.
Beautiful place. Factory at the top was built in 1935. Has all the old tea making machines built around that time by British inhabitants and officials. Guides are very informative and can speak multiple languages nicely. The lemon tea served takes all the tiredness away from the off-road jeep travel to the place. Definitely all worth it.
