I traveled to Ooty with the group last month. The journey itself was thrilling as we found many elephants, deer, wild bison. Staying at a homestay in a small village in the Nilgiris was an experience in itself. The food was delicious and our group had fun before the campfire. All in all, it was one weekend I won't forget for long time. The guide was very entertaining too with all his stories. Organizers were very helpful and always with us. It was my first time to live & experience the jungle and i can tell you it's worth every penny.

The location is excellent since its very close to the tiger reserve and though we did not spot any tigers on the jeep safari we were still able to spot many other animals like elephants,spotter deers and a variety of wild birds. The trek was fun and the food was good but a little too spicy for me.

If you are looking for a nice trek while in Ooty, Glenmorgan Trek should be your ultimatum. This is just so perfect. Taking this tour pack helps as it will reduce the burden of finding a gang to trek with. As I am new to South India and have no trekking pals here, I took this package, and I now found a whole lot of trekking pals during this trek. It was worth it.
