Pedal through Letchmi Village

Overview

Munnar’s tea plantations are a sequestered world, with their very own rhythm of daily routines, timings and worker schedules. It really is very different from the rest of Munnar and its daily pursuits.be it in the factory or out amongst the estate areas where the plants grow. Kannan Devan Hills, where Letchmi Estate is located, was recognised as the ideal place to start plantations by the British. Initially, they also started cultivating coffee, cardamom, cinchona, etc but they later decided to focus on growing tea. The south-west part of the beautiful Kanan Devan Hills, where Letchmi estate is located receives high rainfall and occasional frost during the winter; the average annual rainfall for the estate is around 170 inches. The Tea Museum, India's first-ever tea museum, is located in the Kannan Devan Hill area.
