I traveled to Ooty with the group last month. The journey itself was thrilling as we found many elephants, deer, wild bison. Staying at a homestay in a small village in the Nilgiris was an experience in itself. The food was delicious and our group had fun before the campfire. All in all, it was one weekend I won't forget for long time. The guide was very entertaining too with all his stories. Organizers were very helpful and always with us. It was my first time to live & experience the jungle and i can tell you it's worth every penny.

Our journey from Ooty to Kokkal Kota showed us a lot of greenery and we were in love with the place. We loved the Glenmorgan trek as we got to see the clouds at our feet and the climate was very pleasant and not too cold.

If you are looking for a nice trek while in Ooty, Glenmorgan Trek should be your ultimatum. This is just so perfect. Taking this tour pack helps as it will reduce the burden of finding a gang to trek with. As I am new to South India and have no trekking pals here, I took this package, and I now found a whole lot of trekking pals during this trek. It was worth it.

The trek was something that I never planned. We were visiting Ooty and Nilgiris, since my friends insisted that we take a trek, I took this and it was all last minute. However, this was so perfect way to end our trip. Most of the time at Ooty and Nilgiris was laid back, so this was an adventurous and exciting way to end our trip. Also, this trek is not very tiring, so we did have fun without tiring us totally.

What a pleasing trek. We went as a family, and all the cousins wanted to do trekking while the parents had gone for shopping. We roped in almost at the last time, and it was well organized. We had a nice and fun trek. We really liked the beauty of the hills and the trail. It was somewhat tiresome to an extent, but overall it was just worth it. Also, the trek didn’t cost us much.

We were looking for an easy trek within Tamil Nadu for a weekend getaway and we happened to find this. Ooty was more of sightseeing place when I was a child. I got bored of sightseeing here always, so trek was something that allowed me to experience a whole new Ooty.

This trek was so nice. Firstly it was very easy and beginner level. After going on all crazy, big time treks, I still wanted to trek, but have a basic one so that I can enjoy trekking as well as not tire myself out. This was a perfect option.
