"Firstly, I'd like to mention how we were pleasantly surprised by how good the service is. You wouldn't believe it if you haven't been there. The three guys assisting us were very considerate. We were just two girls on the highest peak in Munnar town and we felt safe. They were really nice to us. They helped us set up a tent and there was bonfire. Inspite of drizzling we could enjoy the camping experience because there was a tent above set up to protect from the rain.\n\nAbout the food; If you're a non vegetarian, you're in for a treat. They barbecued chicken in front of us and it was delicious! Vegetarian food is decent too.\n\nAlso, they took pictures of us in the morning afterward with the tent and jeep. I"

The sanctuary is quite easily accessible from the Kochi International Airport so we had no problem. Thanks to the instructor who led us through the the mysterious jungle and explored the beautiful Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary. I stayed at the Jungle Homestay and really liked their service. You will love to see those beautiful birds but don't expect any large animals.
