Fill Up Your Vacay Time With Plenty Of Activities Including Farming At Bamboo Dale
Bamboo Dale is a plantation resort, which promotes eco-tourism by giving guests opportunities to live the farm life. Plus, there are the usual treks, walks and hanging out amidst nature.
The Perfect Escape
Bamboo Dale is not your average resort. After all, it is set in the beautiful hills of Munnar, which is part of the Western Ghats — A UNESCO natural world heritage site. The property is a short trek from waterfalls and lush hilltops for you to catch the perfect sunset. Apart from giving you a scenic location in nature’s lap, Bamboo Dale also offers plenty of activities to keep you busy and also to learn more about sustainability. The homestay accommodation is WiFi enabled and offers eight comfortable double rooms as well as two dorms that are ideal for big groups.
Play Farmville For Real
Once you are out of the city, it is a different kind of daily grind and by that we mean trying your hand at vegetable farming. The resort will give you an opportunity to get acquainted with farming and spend some time getting down and dirty. You can also dabble in grazing cows here and your little tykes can play and cuddle with the farm’s rabbits.
Bamboo Dale is located by a gurgling stream on the banks of which you can park yourself with a book and a cup of tea. For those seeking adventure, take a walk along Bamboo Dale’s cardamom tea estates, or hike up to Chokramudi Hills — a stretch of nature waiting to be discovered amidst Shola trees. The management can also customise a trekking trip based on your interest.
From Farm to Plate
In an effort to grow awareness on agro-tourism, everything that is on Bamboo Dale’s menu comes from an organic source apparently. From honey obtained from their own beehives, to sourcing rice, vegetables, fruits and other ingredients from their organic garden, the management also has their own dairy farm. Bamboo Dale also farms its own fish, in little in-house fishery.
The best season to visit Bamboo Dale are the monsoons.
