    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.

    I understood the importance of taking leaves and being at such a peaceful place after I chose to stay at this homestay with my family. The rooms are so cozy, lit by kerosene lamps in the evening, only the sound of nature can be heard throughout, no one is there to disturb you. But I have to comment about the food they provided us. I could experience the taste of fresh vegetables growing in the home garden and I saw their vegetable garden. In short, everything at this place is 100% natural.

    Everything we got here is still in my heart. The genuine smiles on the faces of the people I met remains so live still. The location has plenty in its hand to make us so happy and peaceful. From food to the activities, each thing available here will call you back. I should mention about the tea I tasted from the homestay. I have never tasted so delicious tea ever and I think they are making it out of the fresh leaves. Many people come to visit the location every time.
