"Lovely resort overlooking the lake\nWe (two girls) went from Bangalore to Doddaballapur (Bus no. 285M) and from doddaballapur to ujjani from ujjani it took us 10 \nmins to reach the resort the tour organizers came to pick us up.\nWe went for a short trek to experience the amazing sunset, we returned to the resort to play volleyball, badminton and archery. We spent evening around the lake we enjoyed barbecue and campfire.. The food was delicious. We stayed in a tree house. Next morning we sat on top of a tree to watch the sunrise which was a breathtaking scenery after breakfast we went for trekking which was a fabulous experience as it was our first time we went for an easier trek\nTour organizers were so friendly, we felt as if we were with our family… Staff was very friendly and helpful\nWe've been raving about it to all of our friends and family. Thank you for a stay that was memorable and one of the most enjoyable weekend we ever had. Staying here was very unique and fun.\n\nAll in all, we highly recommend everyone to visit this incredible place. \n\n"

"One of the best places for camping. You will love the drive to reach this place, those roads!! so beautiful.\nCan't forget the hospitality of the host. Bahaddur, who is working over there and his kids are so much fun to talk. They served delicious authentic madikeri food. walk around the estate, don't worry Bahadur kids can take you there and be such a wonderful company. Bonfire, you get to meet different people from different places, share a drink, exchange of thoughts, what not. Overall its one of the affordable best packages in madikeri."

It was an stunning experience for me as solo traveler. Location is in 16 km cut from Madikeri towards Talakaveri and last 3 km pathway is very much into the forest and you will be enjoying that. Location is untapped by many and road in the last stretch is not so comfortable and that is the beauty of the place. The place is very much into the forest and you wont here any sound other than birds,leaves and wind. No Wifi and Network is very weak and that's exactly what we need when we are in holidays. Temperature is damn low at night and camp fire sets the mood for it to enjoy. Tent sleep is a different experience for me and i am sure it would be the same for all. Water stream flows nearby and we can go and pass time there. Morning, we walked around 2 Km into the forest to see a jungle falls which is icing on the cake. Trekking path is also untouched by many i believe. Also you can coffee estate to walk around. No need to mention that food is very delicious and so are services. On a whole, I am sure it would be a complete package for a camp day or two. if it is Coorg, this should be your stay place. I landed at thrillophilia accidentally and it is a needed one. If i want to say in Rajini style, "Magizhchi"

First of all I would like to thank Coorg local team for wonderful arrangements and management. Special thanks to Mr Pavan and Mr Arun Anna. Votecad Nature camp : If you want to feel the nature really surrounded by Rain forest, this is the place. a nutshell this place has- coffee gardens, tea garden, river rafting, trek to brahmagiri, camping, irrupu falls. you can easily reach their by public transportation. Food is really awesome including breakfast, lunch, dinner. Barbeque and Coorg wine is served by the Votecad nature camp. overall I would say that if you are planning for a short trip in South Coorg, this place is perfect.

It was an amazing and adventurous experience. The whole camping area was great with very good homely food. Theexperience staying out there was remarkable. The service people out there are very generous and behaved very humbly. The bathrooms were pretty clean and well maintained with supply of hot water . The best part was bonfire. Truly speaking , it was worth going and staying out there and its one of the best days for us. Thanks Civet Creek Camping Team & Thrillophilia Team for coordinating. Cheers !!! Thanks and Regards, Debasish Nayak

"Fantastic experience!! We went in the summer(may) , still the weather was very pleasant and cloudy. Spending 1 day among those hills without any gadgets has given me a lifetime memory. The weather has changed so many times which made me feel like a couple of days have passed. Best part is camping and trekking, it was a moderate trek, but the leeches tortured us a little, the camp location is breathtaking, calm and beautiful. Highly recommended for nature enthusiasts and adventurers!! ????"

An amazing day spend with friends. We were a group of 10 and we enjoyed like anything. From camping, playing guitar and singing songs during night, climbing rocks, ziplining and I can continue with the list. Really really amazing. If you want a quick break from your busy and hectic life and do not want to spend much money, this is the best option to go for.

"If you've ever been to a camp, you quite know the drill!\nBut this one is off tracks (in a good way), right from the route one has to take to get to the camp -- to the view one gets from those tents -- the brilliant landscape -- homecooked feel good food -- the numerous options one has to pass time! from TT, badminton, volleyball, cricket to cards! The essentials and minor needs of visitors are taken care in the most adorable way, this makes one's stay even more pleasant.\n\nThe hospitality will blow you away!\n\nThe icing on the cake is the trek and the waterfall ????"

By far the best team outing me and my team had! And this was made possible by Civet Creek team and Thrillophilia. We were a little apprehensive about an over-night camping trip and going to a place with little to no phone signals. Though the checkin could be done by 11, we finally ended up at the place by 2:30pm. The place is tucked away in between coffee plantations. Since we arrived late on day 1 and a few were tired, we skipped the trip to waterfall. And it was hot (March)! We were the only group that day on the property. So we chose the shade of the adjacent tents to play some indoor cricket. Once it cooled a bit, the team had fun over the trampolines, rope walk setup, badminton, cricket and volleyball! There was also a TT table but there was no time!They have everything to keep everyone busy with some activity or the other. Once it became dark, everyone was silent for a while as they didn't know what to do. No mobile signals. That's when the camping started, chit-chatting, playing cards. For those not used to camping, till about 730-8pm, there would be some flies and insects around at this place. We asked Bahadur(the caretaker) to setup the bonfire around which we continued to chit-chat and have some wonderful food prepared by the cook. Simple yet tasty food and starters. We continued to have conversations under the starry skies till about 3am when we finally hit the bed. Each tent has bedding for 2 people which is comfortable and clean. Clean sheets and pillows were provided. The bathrooms too were clean and hot water supply was present round the clock. Need to carry torchlight though. The next morning after morning we went on a nice 30 mins trek which showed us our fitness levels right in our face. Bahadur's 5 year old son was much faster than us on the trek. The trek ended in a beautiful waterfall in a private property. Both the surroundings and the water were extremely clean. After spending a couple of hours there, we headed back to freshen up. Had some lovely lemon juice and left back to Bangalore. Mr.Madappa (the owner) and Bahadur (caretaker) made our stay extremely pleasant with the facilities, food, smiles and going the extra mile. And all this at a price of Rs1500/- per head .....wow!!!! Thank you!!!!
