The breathtaking panoramic views of the mighty hills and meadows, sparkling streams, grand waterfalls and low-hanging clouds make it a vacation to remember. Hidden away in the Western Ghats and Achankovil forest in Punalur taluk of Kollam district, it is less frequented by tourists. You'll have Ambanad to yourself without running into too many other visitors.
The place is an ideal weekend getaway. A favourite among visitors who have previously been here, it is the only tea estate in Kollam. The British founded Ambanad Estate where you can see and participate in the various steps involved in processing tea. The machinery used is of British origin. Visitors can spend the night at the estate with two rooms at the bungalow available for rent at a cost of Rs. 2500 plus an additional Rs. 250 for food. Ambanad is not to be missed. What are you waiting for?
