I had so much fun with my friends. It caters a perfect spot for nature lovers as we witnessed the vibrant and exotic bird habitation. Our tour was amazing. Everything was perfect and organized. All thanks to thrillophilia.
We came here as a group of 4 college friends and we loved the entire trip! The mats and sleeping bags for the tents were all provided to us by the caretaker, Karan, and the stay was comfortable and spacious too, enough for 4 people. There was a basketball court where we spent some time and we also tried out some new things, like Rock climbing, which was an awesome experience.
We had a very pleasant experience at this camp, right from the booking process, where Thrillophilia handled the entire process. The campsite was located on a hilltop and there was a beautiful lake in the vicinity, which we got to swim in. It was such a refreshing experience! The trek to the waterfall was also awesome, though a little difficult for a novice trekker like me, but I still did have a lot of fun.

    The monsoons are slightly cooler with temperature ranges of 10-18 degrees with rain showers occasionally.
