Welcome to the Jungle – Part III

Hey Guys! ♥

After our city tour through Kochi, we went back to explore a completely different region of Kerala, the mountainous tea plantations of Munnar. We decided to spent half the day on a trekking tour through the plantations and the surrounding mountains and then after lunch leave for our next (and unfortunately last) stop in Allepey, therefore there I do not have much to say about Munnar and this post will be very picture heavy. The plantations are owned by TATA (of course), and every employee receives not only an extensive health insurance plan, but also shares in TATA. The local golf club is also owned by TATA and free for all employees. According to our trekking guide Ganesh, there even are three wild elephants still living in the mountains of Munnar. Unfortunately, we didn’t spot them, only some elephant poo as proof of their existence 😀 Porcupines are also local to Munnar, and Ganesh found us a porcupine quill as a souvenir to bring back home with us 🙂

So without further ado, here are some of the pictures we took in Munnar!
