Best camping experience ever.loved the camping above the clouds
There was trees all around our tents and it was all green and refreshing as far as our eyes could see. This camping experience was probably all we needed to break the monotony of life.

Really got to get a taste of Kerala on this trip, in every way. The caretaker of the camp treated us like his own family and took care of all our needs. Since we were a group of friends from college, we decided to do something adventurous and picked the night trek, which was one of the best experiences ever. We also opted for the tea estate tour. The food served here was home made and extremely yummy, and we got a taste of the local flavours!
We had a lovely time here staying in Wayanad. We chose the Package 3 and that had a lot of fun activities like trekking and even zip lining included in it. Lunch was not a part of the package which was something I felt should be changed. Apart from that we did have a really pleasant time, and special thanks to Mohan, our caretaker, who made sure we didn’t have any troubles during our stay.
Good fun with family during weekend. We got to indulge in stimulating activities like swimming, hiking, Badminton, volleyball and more! Even indoor games were played. We explored the beauty of Chembara Peak, Edukal Caves and Banasura Dam, and in the evening, had some light music to cheer up our spirits. Great value for money, sure. The neighbouring Karapuzha Dam was a beauty to behold, and our stay was also very comfortable. Hospitality was very satisfying. Overall, a great tour, cost effective and fun. Will like to bring some colleagues here. Thanks Thrillophilia, highly recommended.

This year I thought to go camping with my friends on the New Year Eve 2019, and we had a super fun experience, the campsite was so beautiful and since it was new year it was a little more decorated and had party vibes.
