  • There is an entrance price to visit this place and it includes welcome drink, food and a guided tour of the spice plantations. The food is good and you can try to get the feel of local tastes. The guide was very knowledgeable and has good good job in explaining the benefits of almost each and every plant that was shown. There are lot of cashew plantations as well and you will get to see how a raw cashew looks like. You can purchase all these herbs/spices etc from here.
  • Definitely worth a visit, food is good and the little tour of the spice garden is very informative. I would definitely visit again. The cost of the elephant rides are astronomical.
  • Well Maintained, cool and peaceful place but not worth the Entry fees of Rs.400. Good local food. They serve an awesome Lemon-Grass Cardamom Tea. Visit only if you have never seen any spice plants. They show you: Black Pepper, Cardamom, Turmeric, Vanilla, Cinnamon, '5-spices', Peri Peri Chilli, Maize, Cashew Nuts, Beetle Nut plants.
  • This is a good 30 minutes walk with guide. You can get good knowledge about to plants. but in this park you will find there will be special treatment with the foreigners .if you are indian you will be treated lightly. simple entry, and for foreigners on entry gate phoolo ka har ' red tikka on your head will be done you will feel discrimination. Entry ticket should less
  • The place is not worth the price. The food was insipid not much variety. Though the 15 minutes tour was informative, it was nothing great. Not worth spending time, money and energy
