Overview

Departure Dates:
June 29th
July 6, 13, 20, 27

The Wild Monsoon Adventure Series is back with its 3rd chapter. Happening once a year in the rainy days, this jaunt in the Western Ghats is back, packing quite a punch of adventure. You will experience some of the most exciting adventures during this. It is the perfect experience for travelers who relish adventures like Rafting, Rainforest Trekking, an experience of the local Coorg wine with firewood BBQ, all the while being engrossed in the beauty of the drizzling monsoons all around.

The experience takes you from Bangalore and takes you to the Scotland of India in Coorg. You will be picked up from pre-decided spots in Bangalore and will arrive at the exquisite campsite in Coorg in the early morning hours. 

First up will be the experience of trekking the rainforests of Tadiandamol, which is the highest peak in the district of Coorg, Tadiandamol trek involves gaining a height of about 1748 meters above sea level and offering you a bird's eye view of the beautiful Coorg. All this and much more, make this place one of the most favorite spots for people who love trekking.

Speaking of right after the trek, the experience of local Coorg Wine with a firewood BBQ while the weather is at it's pleasant best is something that will just bring about more beauty to the entire experience.

And if you think that this insane monsoon adventure just ends here, you are in for a huge surprise. The next morning will have your name written on the seat of a raft as it will sail on the rapids of the river Cauvery.

And even if it rains during the trip, the adventure won't stop, because this is the Wild Monsoon Adventure Series

About the Activity:

- Reaching early, you will leave straight for the trek after your breakfast. Spend some time at the top before returning.

- At the end of that, leave for Bangalore, bringing the experience to an end.

Itinerary

  • Day 1 - Tadiandamol Trek

    The trip begins on Friday where you will be picked up from select locations in Bangalore. Since this will be an overnight journey, it is advised that you take some light dinner.

    You will arrive early on the morning of Saturday at your campsite. Check-in and get freshened up, rest for a while.

    You will then be served with a warm and delicious breakfast before you start on the trek to reach the top of Tadiandamol. The trek will pass through lush green forests, making for one amazing experience.

    The rains, as you will notice, have brought on a new beauty to the forest. And if it rains during the trek, you will take out your ponchos or raincoats, and continue on the trek.

    But what really takes the cake away is the view from the top, which offers you sweeping glances of the entire Coorg, and its unending coffee plantations. The experience of standing amidst the clouds is going to be an unforgettable one.

    Spend some time at the top, take pictures and relax, before you enjoy the packed lunch.

    You will then start the descent back to the base camp.

    Enjoy the taste of local Coorg wine with the experience of a smoky BBQ prepared on firewood.

    Dinner will be served and after that, you can retire for the night.

  • Day 2 - River Rafting | Return

    Wake up to a beautiful morning and have your breakfast.

    You will be then taken for the experience of Barapole White Water Rafting. In case the weather does not permit, you will be getting to experience other equally amazing and adventurous activities at the campsite, like Zip-lining, rope course etc.

    Check-out in the early hours of the afternoon, and get a transfer back to Bangalore, bringing the experience to an end.

    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.

    The trip was adventurous and it was nice to meet new faces. The venue chosen for the event was perfect. Full of greenery, amazing weather, very secluded and private, just nice for 60 of us. It is a little difficult to find the venue as transport was not included but thankfully the host was reachable and he helped us arrive at the venue. Breakfast was paratha and aloo veggie. Event planned for the day was trekking which is 6km up Bharmagiri, unfortunately, we did not make it up as time and weather was not good. There were quite a few leeches as well where trekkers were not comfortable. Thankfully our guides helped us with salt. We came home half way from the trek, played volleyball, football and it was nice to get to know each other. By 6pm barbeque, home made wine and music were getting set up by the host. We had briyani for dinner. We slept in tents with sleeping bags given by the host. 2 toilets each for ladies and gents. Water supply was an issue but rectified quickly by the host. Breakfast was poori and aloo veggie. White water rafting the next day was good, calming, and the rain was there to make it a memorable experience. We were allowed to jump off our boats swim with our friends. Was relaxing and the main reason to get away from the city. We took some photos, received a souvenir from Thrillophilia's team and left for home. Overall a good experience away from the city, bringing us back to nature and enjoying the simple pleasures.

    When the monsoons started, we started making plans to go on an a trek somewhere in the Western Ghats. This Thrillophilia event looked promising and adventurous enough. We booked it right away and set off. We reached Gonikappalu early morning on Saturday and were picked up by a jeep, by the organizers and taken to the camp site. We did some serious off-roading on the way, passing through muddy roads with thick jungles on both sides. When we reached the camp site we were blown away by the beauty of the place. The campsite was like an open field surrounded on all sides by jungles with the western ghats peeking through them. Some 200m from our tents hidden behind the trees was a small stream which was in itself a spectacle. A light drizzle kept coming and going all through the two days we spent there. We started off the day with a trek.It seemed simple enough, but the leeches were something of a challenge as they kept trying to get on to us. The tour guides helped us to deal with them with help of salt and sticks. Although we could not complete the trek to the summit it was still a very exciting and adventurous trek. On returning back to the base of the hill we had our lunch and headed back to the campsite. All the different groups had become well acquainted with each other and we played some throw-ball which was great fun. The evening was made 'happening' with some great barbecue, groovy music and a bonfire. The party went on quite late into the night. The next day, we woke up and had our breakfast which wasn't all that great. Then we headed out to do some rafting. The rafting site was serene, a gently flowing river with green trees on both sides. We were provided life jackets for safety which would keep us afloat. We rowed down the river for some time and jumped into the river for a swim. It started raining just about then and we all felt wonderful and we floated on the water with the rain falling on us. To sum it up, it was a wonderful experience that will always bring back some great memories. While the campsite and the rafting was the best part of the event. The trekking and the food could have been better organized. I would definitely recommend it to people who love the outdoors and do not mind the rain.

    I am a fitness freak and love travelling. This one was like the perfect one for me. Something far away from the city noise and totally filled with fun and adventure. The best part were the mud games and obstacle courses. It was raining at that time, but nothing could stop us. The trek is filled with such beauty that it left me spell-bounded. Overall a must go for everyone who's looking for something different..

    Had a great time at this adventurous event. The place was near Gonikoppal and was it's natural beauty was at its peak during the monsoon season. We had a great time trekking and camping under the sky. The bonfire and barbecue was awesome as we got to know a lot of new people who were crazy about adventure and travelling like myself. I enjoyed the obstacle course very much and had a good time dancing in the rain. The experience was crazy. It was like we found a heavenly retreat in the midst of nature. Amazing event! Thanks to all my co-travelers. :)

    Fun filled package.Rafting was wonderful. Trekking is beautiful except the attack from leeches. Found plenty of them on the way and we put salt everywhere but still after returning also, I had one on my socks. Food was traditional and some people did not like it because it was too spicy I think. But apart from that the entire trip, especially the camping part was amazing. Suggesting all of you should try this trip once.

    I was very doubtful about this event at first, but my friend took me anyhow and I thank for that. :D What an amazing and unique event! Hatsoff to the organizers.. They took care of everything from food to bathrooms to all activities. Very different from other mainstream camping options. I'm already waiting for the next time.
