The next morning we took a long walk through the tea plantations. Passing by some cardamon and coffee plantation we got to a view point and then continued by some very nice resorts and then the pickers living quarters in the middle of the tea plantations before making it to a trickling waterfall, and finishing on the main road by the tea "factory outlet store". It felt like we were in Europe, totally disconnected from India, in a sea of green. Only we had a chat with one of the pickers (the tea leaves are all picked by hand) and discovered that he makes about 1500 Rupees a month (about 30 USD); still in India after all.
