Nilgiris

About the Destination: Famous for its beautiful sceneries, tea plantations, fields and estates, Gudalur makes a glorious biking expedition.  It derives its name from the Tamil words 'koodal oooru', which mean adjoining village. Indeed, Gudalur adjoins Ooty, Gundalpet and Nilambur and is equidistant from Kerala, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu.  Apart from great visual beauty, the place is rich in wildlife and both high-altitude and low-altitude flora and crops. The village traces the origins of its tea plantation back to the British occupation. Being situated close to other states, its demographic is an interesting amalgamation of cultures, especially after the 1970s, when the Tamil Nadu government agreed to give shelter to refugees from Sri Lanka.   The fundraising cycling tour to Gudalur begins at Bangalore, where you will cover 350 kms all the way to Gudalur. On the way, stop and visit many places and people from different professions and cultures, including silkworm rearers in a sericulture farm, jaggery sellers, potters, the Mudumalai tiger reserve and a group of villagers in Kokkarebellur who have formed an animal conservation group. You will also get to interact with the adivasi community in Gudalur, a group of indigenous and original inhabitants of the land, and will learn about their art, community and culture. Currently, the NGO works with four tribes Kattunayakans (traditional honey gatherers), Paniyas, Bettakurumbas (Elephant mahaouts) and Mullukurumbas. About the Activity: Get ready to wear spontaneity on your sleeve as you set out on an exciting and adventurous fundraising rally from Bangalore to Gudalur in Nilgiris. Prior to the trip, you will have to be able to raise a fundraising amount of INR 20,000. The Go! Make a Difference' cycling tour is a novel, self-contained bicycle ride that is not a competition or a sport but an experience that will take you through all the changing landscapes and the urban-rural shifts of a bicycle trip from Karnataka to Tamil Nadu.  Pack up your life and pedal away on an epic ride that will see you cycling 350 kms from Bangalore all the way to Gudalur, which is situated in Tamil Nadu and is equidistant from both Kerala and Karnataka. The Adivasi Munnetra Sangam (AMS) is a movement that works with the adivasis or the indigenous people of a land, who are its original inhabitants. AMS works with them to preserve their culture and securing their livelihood, at the same time maintaining their human rights issues in the context of land grabbing, low wages and other forms of exploitation.

It was the best vacation of this year. Taking a south Indian hill stations tour was something that I wanted to do. The climate here was good, the bonfires were fun, and it was just a perfect vacation.

Amritambu Nambeesan Homestay In Nilgiris With Bonfire
Superb
Out of the world: Yes, staying in a typical home-like scenario near the nature is a beautiful way to spend a weekend. I really enjoyed this totally and so were my friends. There weren’t much to do except roam around in the nature and sightsee through, but it was all worth it.

It was a just about an average stay. There were mosquitoes all along. The only relief was the bonfire which was all fun and interesting to do.

Some of the best things happen when you least expect it. This is so true with this trip. I never expected to have a lots of fun as I thought it is gonna be just a laid back trip, but I was clearly wrong. The trip was just perfect. It was relaxing, leisure one. However, it was also perfectly fun to do.

It was a nice and satisfactory trip after a really long time. I haven’t had a satisfactory trip in a long time and taking this was the good thing that happened to me in the recent past. It was relaxing, laid back, and good in a way. I am so happy that I chose this tour pack.

Aaaah! The cackle of the bonfire, the warmth of the logs and the laughter of the night is still echoing in my ears. Unforgettable experience.

Excellent
It was the best thing that I have ever done. Hands down this is better than having a luxurious hotel stay. Firstly, it feels so much like being in home. Secondly, this is way cheaper in terms of money. Also, the bonfire at the night is all the more fun with all the co tourists gathering around. This is just perfect for people who would like to have a lot of relaxation and refreshment in their getaway. Also, the nature and surroundings near Nilgiris are so beautiful that it would make anyone fall in love with it. It’s just perfect.

If you happen to go here perfectly in the time of the year when the weather is perfect then you can see a lot of interesting and beautiful things in and around Nilgiris. As of the stay, it was brilliant, comfortable, and very much perfect. The food wasn’t that laudable, and also we were stuck with just this food option as the hotels were quite far, but nevertheless this was one of the best tours I ever had had.

This is definitely a worth try. Although, it seems a little costly for the place we stayed in, the bonfire compensates for it. We had a good time at the Nilgiris and I am glad about the hospitality of the team. Also, the food was decently good and was served in an authentic manner.
