It’s been a year and half since we traveled to Kerala. Wanderlust consumed our hearts; we looked at the map of Kerala.
“I want an engrossing destination” I murmured.
“What about Vagamon? It looks like a floating paradise, blooming meadows.” Said Sai Priya.
Staying at WinterVale gives us a thousand unforgettable memories. Lodged amidst the meadows of western Ghat , this place is perfect to rejuvenate & re-connect with oneself. A blissful experience in the God’s own country , Kerala.
It’s a two hour drive from Kumily Bus stop . You definitely gonna enjoy that drive for sure, sighting the green mountains .
The gorgeous wooden villa welcomes us with a floral arrangement and greetings.
Those wooden arm-chairs in the balcony become our favourite cozy spot. A welcoming place for nature to bestow the warmth . The first thing we prefer is to sip piping hot Chukku Kappi . Coffee flavoured with dry ginger and black pepper. A perfect treat for wintery December.
We spend hours in watching the changing sky. A flock of clouds are dancing with joy on the blue carpet. While three little Robin birds are singing a winter song.
Here are the six things that you can’t miss while staying at this splendid Wintervale.
1. Morning at WinterVale Green Stay Resort
Mornings at Wintervale are picturesque. When you wake up to sunlight amidst nature you feel the love twirling around. The rainbow butterflies resemble like carrying the greetings from meadows for a glorious day. And those acrobatic dragonflies remind you to be live in the very moment.
We enjoy our breakfast spread in the sun kissed garden. This place is just perfect to soak up some vitamin D with the freshly prepared delicacies.
2.Enjoy the Kerala Famous ‘Pazham Pori’
A plate of Pazham Pori is the seer happiness in true sense. The Kerala style Nadan Banana is user to make these fritters . Do no forget to pair with a cup of ‘Chaya’ . The chef at WinterVale has the best to offer when you ask for such authentic dishes.
3.Visit to Tea-Lake
I start collecting unknown feelings from the artistic road through wild meadows. We are on our way to a tranquil paradise.
4. Trek to witness the most gorgeous Sunset
5.Enjoy the traditional meal on a banana leaf
A blissful experience awaits once you arrive at WinterVale , Vagamon. You get to relish the most delicious Kerala Meal on a plantain leaf. A mini sadhya was served on our plates. Pampadam, thoran , fish curry , fish fry , erissery are few to name.
The chef prepares Karimeen Polichathu which is a flavour bomb. Wrapped in banana leaf , the fish is cooked with freshly prepared Masala paste. He uses the fresh spices from their garden.
Such gastronomic experiences always awestruck me. And you believe that Cooking is an art , nothing less !
6.Tea Plantation Walk
While Sai priya, the shutterbug is busy in treasuring these moments.
7. Enjoy your Me time at the WinterVale’s Private Waterfall
