Thekkady Spice Plantation

The spice plantation in Thekkady is one of the major ones in Kerala. These are beautiful farms to wander through since different spices are cultivated in other sections of each plantation. The first thing you notice as you stroll through Thekkadi's streets or along the meandering paths through the plantations is the lingering perfume. The aroma may be of two or more different spices. Kumily's unique geographic and climatic characteristics, such as its cold climate and elevation above sea level, make it the perfect location for growing spices.
