You can choose to trek with our in house naturalist who will take you through the tea plantations all the way up to the Attukad waterfalls. On the way you will come across people from the local community who work at the tea plantations. Scenes of women delicately plucking tea leaves to the plantation watcher who keeps a close eye on everything and everyone with his big mustache and cane are all the sights that greet you on your trek to the falls. In the distance you can watch the beautiful sight of the waterfalls dropping like a stream of milk over the rocks. Once you reach the falls you can take in the picturesque beauty and breathe in the fresh air. Please be advised that entering the falls or the river is dangerous due to the presence of strong undercurrents and the underwater troughs. It is best to refrain from such activities.
