There is nothing there to see. No explanation nor guide to introduce the place or products. Just a table with samples of tea leaves, soaps etc lying around. Thi place is well situated and would be a good place to visit if much better managed.

What an incredible place. We'd never been to a tea plantation before and we're sure glad we listened to a friend who recommended Araksa. The plantation is set amidst rolling hills under beautiful acacia trees. It's truly a magical place. "Charlie" who operates the tour,...More
