The Cumbum valley, set between the Thekkady, Varusanadu and Kodaikanal hills is a prodigiously fertile area in neighbouring Tamil Nadu, near its border with Kerala. Farms in the area typically harvest large quantities of grapes band the town is an important market for trade in coconut and cardamom.
On this tour you will visit an organic farm in the area. The journey here is a veritable feast for the eyes, through a serene mountain road and scenic vistas stretching to the horizon. On reaching the town, you will be taken to a market where you could buy vegetables that your host at lunch will cook for you. You will be received at the farm with a glass of fresh juice squeezed from fruits grown on the farm.
A bullock cart will take you on your tour around the farm accompanied an English-speaking guide. The tour will pass through the fruit orchards, past an apiary, a livestock rearing farm, a garden growing herbs and the composting yard, stopping at each stage, to observe and learn about the activities on the farm. You will feed the animals and then climb a watch tower for a spectacular view of the valley. Later you will attend a cooking demonstration and have a meal of local cuisine prepared from the freshly picked ingredients grown on the farm. After lunch, you will be transported back to your hotel.
