Day 2: Lesson 2
Coonoor has great nice tea gardens and they offer factory visits too.
When you are traveling towards dolphins nose, you will come many tea gardens. They offer factory visit. Google suggests Coonoor tea estate. My exp is that it is difficult to track it and once we spotted it, the weird watchmen shooed us away (maybe speaking Tamil would have helped)
So dont waste your time traveling extra for your tea factory tour. Its en route to Dolphin nose.
Mini Tip: My personal exp is that Dolphin nose is too crowded and offer nothing great but views which you have already seen all along. Its better to relax before Dolphin nose, in one of the eateries and head back.
If you still decide to go to till last point, dont take your car till last point. Its a dead end there and you will get stuck as many people make that mistake and it becomes nightmare to turn your car around ( I did same mistake).
