From Cochin, we left the coast and we moved inland, up to the Western Ghats, the lush mountains where the British used to build their summer houses.
Here, our first stop was Munnar, famous for its lolling hills covered by tea and spices plantations.
We were literally hypnotized by this landscape. For those who have never seen tea plantations, these look like a thick carpet that makes hills looking soft and puffy - like in a fairy tale.
And you feel liking diving (and swimming) into this ocean of green...
