Submitted: Mar 09, '08
Great Travel Moment
What more does Goa offer than beaches and parties.?Spice plantations and back waters like kerala India.See this place ,reach it when you drive up the hills -yes hills in east Goa as you approach Ponda.DRive up and reach this place with lake and a spice planatation and matching food and oils spices etc. on offer.We spent some time seeing a Elephant being washed and enjoyed the atmosphere so different from the sea side food shacks and great beaches of Goa.This floating water platform bridge on drums takes you to a wood and coconut grove type of settings from where they launch you inside greenest spice plantations growing cashew nuts,coconuts,pepper,elaichi-cardamom,nutmeg ,cinnamon etc.The greenery was reflected in the water body too as this serpentinne lake weaved its way between hills.
