A Winding Road Among Tea Estates in Kerala

A Winding Road Among Tea Estates in Kerala

A stunning view of the Elappara – Vagamon road winding like a grey necklace among emerald green tea estates in the high ranges of Kerala, in the Idukki district. This place is called Elappara, literally meaning “Cardamom rock” after the spice grown here. The scenery and beauty of this entire area is breathtaking, often wrapped up in mist even during day time with the narrow road barely passable, though a busy bus route. The high ranges of Kerala, where the Western Ghats span all of Idukki and parts of Kottayam, Pathanamthitta and Ernakulam districts isĀ among the unknown and mostly unspoilt areas by tourism in the state. It wouldn’t be an overstatement to say that it is one of the most beautiful places on earth šŸ™‚ I can proudly say that I hail from the foothills of the highranges.

The location of the view seen here is given below. The photo was taken from the road above it.
