The public washrooms. Those were bamboo poles.

Local timber as walls. Unique!

After a few stops to get some fruits and vegetables on the way up, we headed to BOH Tea Centre in Sungai Palas. The centre is open from 9a.m. 4.30p.m. daily (closed on Mondays). Admission is free. BOH is Malaysia's largest black tea producer. Read more about BOH on www.boh.com.my.

Hi :}

Excellent photos! Great write up!

The lay out of the tea garden is mesmorising.

We also have quite a few tea gardens in the Munnar and Vandiperiar hills. I used to visit these gardens for business when I was working.

I have some cherished memories of these visits such as driving up several hair pin bends, poor visibility in the rainy season, the biting cold in winter, breathtaking flowers , a gurgling stream flowing in the Munnar town, and a Church, Mosque and Temple perched on a hill adjacent to each other. I used to stay in a place called Muir Cottage. They were glorious days which I cannot forget.

Thanks for rekindling those wonderful memories.

Have a marvellous day :)

As always, thank you for your kind words, Joseph. Was just appreciating God's gifts. :-)

I hope to visit Cameron more often. It'd be nice to 'escape' to a cool place once in a while.

You have a great day!
