It was a truly amazing experience for me and my friend. We reached the place before the check in time but still without a hesitation the staff managed to accommodate us in our tent leaving us enough time to explore the beautiful surrounding and embark on our own adventure. The surrounding area was not even close to what we expected.. the beauty and the calming sound of nature itself is enough to make you forget all your troubles and the busy life. We were visiting ooty for the first time and we came across this out of nowhere and booked it right away and when we reached the place the next day we realized it was more than what we had expected for such a cheap price. The tents are comfortable and the staff is really kind and helpful which is a major plus point. This is a must try for all kinds of thrill seekers, adventure hunters, friends, family or simply anyone who is looking to get away from the busy life And escape into serenity.

The Kotagiri Trek by Thrillophilia had everything that I wanted from a trek. As a solo traveller who thrives on budget tours and tries to enjoy different places as much as possible, this trek to Kotagiri was a major tick on my bucket list. From adventurous forest trails to walking alongside ice-cold river paths, it is safe to say that not just me, but everyone in the trekking group enjoyed this trek a lot. The support staff, guide and even the whole process (from the booking to the post-trek service) was an organised one, thanks Thrillophilia. The most enjoyable experience for me was sleeping in the cosy tents on the sleeping beds and gorging on the yummy food. With this trekking tour by Thrillophilia, they have surely gained a permanent customer who is going to keep coming back to them to go for more such exciting and adventurous tours.

My wife and I love to go on different treks whenever we get the time. This time, we were looking to go on a trek somewhere near home. Thanks to Thrillophilia, we found out about the Kotagiri Trek, which seemed perfect to us. With over 20 percent discount and such affordable rates, the trek also included accommodation, food and a guide. This was nothing short of a sweet deal for us! Soon after we decided to do the booking, we were surprised to find out how easy and smooth the entire process actually was. Everything, right from the booking procedure, to the mode of payment was easy and without any issues. Thrillophilia even made sure that we were taken care of during the Kotagiri trek in Ooty, which not many people look after. It is due to them that not only we could enjoy such an amazing trek, but also capture the sights of such beautiful waterfalls and tea estates, that too near our home.
