It was a team outing, 30 of us from office and a few also got their family and kids! I and few others in my team were looking everywhere and nothing seemed to match our requirements. It had to be fun, well coordinated, there should be team building and games, physical activities, adventurous and it should be a memorable day. Well the budget too was pretty tight. Nothing seemed to tick all the check boxes until I arrived on this resort's page on Thrillophilia. There are a lot of activities that you can do, zorbing, jumaring, rappeling, trekking, zipline, rain-dance, bow and arrow, dart, cricket, hiking and lots of team games.There is fresh air, great ambience, kids would love it, they even gave us a tent, the food was very good, one of the friendliest staff, it was overall incredibly memorable and fun. I recommend this place for short groups, friends and family too!

Rageshwari Deshpande Adventure Stay at Ramanagara

After I moved to Bangalore, I realized that there are quite a few amazing weekend getaway spots. However, not everything can be planned all by us. When I saw, Ramanagara trek package, I took the deal. It was an amazing deal. The whole trek was planned and it was cost-effective too. I also learnt a lot on the significance of that place.

Awesome trek to go with friends and chillout with a bonfire at the summit. You wake up to the most beautiful sunrise infront of you. The trek arrangements were really nice.. comfortable sleeping bags were provided as well.

Went to this trek on weekend with couple of my friends. We were excited by the idea of night trekking. It is not difficult trek but trekking night makes it adventurous. Our guide was very friendly and best part was reaching top and sitting beside the bonfire. View of sunrise from the top was mesmerizing.
"An enjoyable 1 day outing. Good hospitable people. Started the day with trekking, rapelling, ziplining. Had a decent lunch, played paintball(charegable) and then went for kayaking. Overall a very good experience. "
I am so glad to write about my journey at thrillophilia reviews. It was a perfect getaway from Bangalore. The good part was that we were left with a complete day ahead of us to explore the nearby spots in Ramanagara. Being a Bollywood fan was overly excited to visit the spot where “Sholay was shot”. I enjoyed it a lot. Planning to visit again sometime soon with my boys' gang.
My first experience of trekking during the night was at Ramanagara. A day time trek to Ramanagara cannot just beat the feeling of trekking and camping under the sky full of stars. I got to meet a lot of new people and had a great campfire. The guide provided by Thrillophilia was very cooperative. I would recommend Ramanagara trek from Bangalore to each and every one who wishes to have a whole new experience. You can get more insights about this place at thrillophilia reviews.
Ramanagara trek turned out to be one of the best outings for me ever since I have been in Bangalore. Went out with my flatmates. All thanks to Thrillophilia which allowed us to experience such a unique experience. I would recommend everyone in Bangalore to this trek at least once.
It was the best adventure day out we had. We were in a group of 5 and had enjoyed all the adventure activities here and just loved the resort.
The moment we entered there we were really amazed at the stunning views of the campsite. One day is just not enough to enjoy the beauty of this place.
