"" On our final night we stayed in a delightful glamp high in the hills above Munnar. Each of the spacious rooms has its own bathroom, and has the privilege of overlooking the surrounding plantations, and the mountains across the valley. Tea plantations cover some of the highest points in these mountains, creating a beautifully trimmed green velvet carpet of tea bushes that give real texture to the contours of the hills. Between the tea plantations are corridors of jungle, where elephants, tigers and bears live wild. We saw 24 different species during our three days of walking. We also spotted a family of rare dusky squirrels, lots of birds and – the jewel in the crown – a Nilgiri Marten, which is so rare that it was only photographed in its entirety in 2005 and very little is known about its habits – sadly it was too dark for a photograph…!An experience not be missed if you visit the area!
