As a part of my tour with the media group of the Kerala Travel Mart 2018, held in Cochin, Kerala, India from Sep 28th-30th, 2018, we sojourned for a couple of days in the tiny town of Kumily which is located in the Cardamom hills in the district of Idukki in Kerala, India.
This highland region is well known for its cool climes and makes for a popular tourist destination. It is also a land where spices abound and one can find a vast range of them being cultivated and sold here.
It also has the Periyar National Park in its vicinity, which is known to be a tiger and elephant reserve.
During our two day stay at the Spice Village, we visited the nearby attractions of the Periyar lake, a local Spice garden, tea plantations and rubber estates.
We also had the pleasure of viewing a Kathakali (a well known Indian dance form) performance and a very skilled display of Kalaripayattu, the local martial arts.
Come visualize the experience through my lens and story.
