One of the best new year party and experience of my life. Everything was very well arranged and the campsite was very neat and clean. Staff was very polite and helpful. We danced a lot on the tunes of Dj and also we burst some crackers to welcome 2019. Friends, nature, music, mountains new year can't be better than this.
I went to this amazing campsite location last year (2018) on New Year with my friends. Everything was included in the package from food to comfortable stay to music to the bonfire to adventure activities. Enjoyed a lot and made my new year a memorable one. I couldn't have asked for such an amazing and rocking New Year. All thanks to Thrillophilia and the team. Looking forward to more such tours.

Tanushri Pothuvaal Kanatal Trek
It was my first time, but the experience was great as both days and night were full of enjoyment there.
The car provided to us was comfortable and clean. The driver picked us up on our desired time and he was well known about the city and helped us pick up the places to visit there. It was a great transfer service and completely hassle-free.
We reached Kanatal via the fastest route and throughout the 3-hours drive, we had so many beautiful mountain views to see in between.
