Traveller Tales from Bangalore

This was a really nice trip. Firstly, this place is close by Bangalore and very much in driving distance. Secondly, the adventure activities are well-organized. They are safe too. This way it is very easy and convenient for us to blindly trust and do this. Also, most of the adventurous activities didn’t require much background skills like swimming or gym training. It was meant for everyone.

A must go place! We started our trek early in the morning and the journey through the jungle and waterfalls was breathtaking! There were a few steep climbs too with a scorching sun above us, but all of it is worth when you reach the peak. I would suggest to rest at the peak till evening and take the jeep ride back down, coz it is one hell of adventure! On the way back, park for a while to witness the mesmerizing sunset. It will soothe you of all the pain. The next day we had Nagara Fort on the way back. A picturesque location, i must say! With so many pics, burnt calories and smiles on our faces we returned with a bag full of memories :)

Trek was nice but so much of tiring :) whoever is planning for this trek i would like to suggest them to do few stretching exercises at-least for 3-4 days before this trek. Relaxing on peak of Skandagiri under sky roof along with Stars and camp fire was superb :) Thrillophilia is all safe and reliable and organized :) Even I went alone in a group , got good accompany . You will find decent crowd. Sujay our trek leader was nicely coordinating with everyone. Some Tips :- 1. Do stretching exercise before 2-3 days of actual trek 2. Wear Trekking Shoes only 3. Do not wear Jeans as there are so many Rocky patches to climb up. 4. Carry Winter Jacket and cap as early morning you will find its tough time to survive from cold :) 5. Torch by default for Night Trek 6. Try to keep your bag light weighted as much as possible. Overall experience was nice.

It was a team outing, 30 of us from office and a few also got their family and kids! I and few others in my team were looking everywhere and nothing seemed to match our requirements. It had to be fun, well coordinated, there should be team building and games, physical activities, adventurous and it should be a memorable day. Well the budget too was pretty tight. Nothing seemed to tick all the check boxes until I arrived on this resort's page on Thrillophilia. There are a lot of activities that you can do, zorbing, jumaring, rappeling, trekking, zipline, rain-dance, bow and arrow, dart, cricket, hiking and lots of team games.There is fresh air, great ambience, kids would love it, they even gave us a tent, the food was very good, one of the friendliest staff, it was overall incredibly memorable and fun. I recommend this place for short groups, friends and family too!

After I moved to Bangalore, I realized that there are quite a few amazing weekend getaway spots. However, not everything can be planned all by us. When I saw, Ramanagara trek package, I took the deal. It was an amazing deal. The whole trek was planned and it was cost-effective too. I also learnt a lot on the significance of that place.

The weather worked in our favour and it wasnt too hot or too sunny for us when we went for our sunday trek here. Nice place and lovely climate in this area.

It was overall a well organized trek but for a couple of things -a. picking us up a little late. b. number of people on the trek was huge. The trek organizers/guides including Swamy were very responsible and friendly. One of them even took some good snaps of/for us :). The bonfire was very much necessary at the peak and we had fun keeping the fire on nullifying the effect of strong winds :P. Overall the trek was fun and memorable except for some constant unnecessary noise created by a bunch of people who were part of the trekking group. Would like to go on more such trips.
