Rubber Tapping Walk

Start work at 5:00, reporting for muster and collecting your work tools. Walk in undulating terrains as you deftly slice off a 3 mm bark of a tree in a swirl. Collect the Latex that flows out into shells. – Thus runs a typical day of a Rubber Tapper. Leave at 7:30 in the morning to walk a few steps in the life of a rubber tapper. Understand tapping, mulching, weeding and other Rubber cultivation methods. Hear the story of how a native Brazilian Tree now contributes to the economy of India. Listen to the life journeys of the Scot, Captain Thomas Patrik Madden Alexander (who started the estate in 1900’s.) and the Shrama Brothers who ran the estate.
