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 entire place has such a fictional feel to it. It was like I'm lost on some movie set. Great experience- got to see lot of animals and some rare birds too. Amazing experience.

Be there at least once, this is the advice I have to give to all my friends. Bellikal is so beautiful and you will feel like you are staying in the middle of a jungle. It is so quiet and peaceful and worth spending your money and time if you are really looking forward to have an offbeat stay in its real sense. But don’t expect resort-like luxuries here as it is an eco-friendly cottage. The wildlife will surprise you often and you can spot them very near to you, especially at night. But the service provided by the people here was awesome. I liked the trekking part more; the complete view of the Nilgiris is possible from the top of the mountain. I had a peaceful time unlike every other day of my routine life.
