Rolling Injipara Tea Estates of Valparai: Stunning Location for a Morning Walk

Injipara Tea Estate and the factory in the yonder, Valparai

Do you love plantation holidays? Well, if you do, you will certainly like the rolling Injipara tea estates of Valparai. Owned by the Woodbriar group and home to two of the Briar Tea Bungalow properties, this private tea garden landscape is a treat for the eyes. As Injipara tea estate is privately owned land, only the people staying in any of the Briar Tea Bungalows can visit this place. This means that you hardly have more than a few tens of people at any time here.

While the private roads of Injipara tea estate make for a beautiful winding drive, I think it makes for a stunning location for a morning walk. You can either embark on your walk after your morning tea/coffee or you can carry hot piping coffee and cookies with you and enjoy them at a scenic pit stop.

Tea factories, rivers, birdlife, wildlife, butterflies, lush nature and more can be experienced on this walk through Injipara tea estate. While you enjoy the heady smell of tea wafting through the air, keep an eye out for peacocks that usually can be found amidst the tea bushes during the morning hours. There are old bus stops that make for great picnic spots and where you can enjoy your tea/coffee and cookies. The fresh air, the disappearing morning mist, the golden rays of the morning sun and the heady panoramic view of rolling tea gardens makes this an absolutely special morning plantation walk.

If you happen to be visiting Valparai, do check out this place. If you aren’t staying at the Briar Tea Bungalows, you can drop by Stanmore garden bungalow for some tea and snacks and request the office for permission to go on this walk. If you are staying at any of the Briar Tea Bungalows, you should definitely not miss either the Injipara tea garden morning walk or the hike to Nadumalai river. I recommend this place with double thumbs up!
