This winter, traveling through the relatively undiscovered state of Tamil Nadu, we had the good fortune to stay a couple of nights at the Windermere Hill Station in Munnar, which has every shade of green imaginable. The light is extraordinary and the weather is refreshingly cool, unlike other parts of Kerala. The Munnar region is famous for its tea plantations which cover 30,00 hectares and grows on every hillside; but the Windermere Estate grows only Cardamom and Coffee.
For those of you who want to experience this wonderful place I would strongly recommend a visit. http://www.windermeremunnar.com/
