Trekking in Kerala

Trekking in Kerala - The call of the backwaters in Gods own country.

Gods own country is what we know the lush green state of Kerala as. And for those of you who love the idea of thrills and adventures, Kerala treks should be up on your sleeves. This is one place where you can be free to your hearts content and camp around, enjoy paragliding or trek as much as you want. The adventures ahead when you trek around the state of backwaters are incomparable to any other experience you may have had while trekking elsewhere.

Kerala has the best of both worlds encompassed to the thrill the adventurous at heart. Right from her rugged mystical beauty of the Western Ghats to the flat grasslands that run across Munnar, Kerala will keep you coming back for more. Dont miss out on her enchanting rain forests, Periyar, which is known all over the world by experienced trekkers as a haunt and the best place to live the experience of trekking. And if you still need to bask in pure adventure, Kerala has her mountain ranges to offer.

These are some of the best trekking locations trails in Kerala:

  1. You dont need to have too much time on your hands when you visit Kerala for a trekking experience. For example, you could opt for the well known Chimmony or the Rainforest Trekking. And for all of this, you would need three days maximum to enjoy and explore around. What you would see over here would be breathtaking dense lush forests. Apart from that, the species of birds and animals around would keep you hooked and clicking. This is an amazing experience for wildlife and adventure seekers. You can trek through the forests, camp at night, stay at jungle huts and even raft in the forests lakes.
  2. Once again, for another three days to the max, you could opt for Parambikulam, which again is Rainforest Trekking. The wildlife population here is high and considered to be the best in southern India. When you are here don't forget to check the Tramway Trek, which is an abandoned trail built for the tramways in 1905. You would get to learn first hand how wood from these forests was taken to the nearest towns using this mode of transportation. The forest is also known to house endangered herbs, rare and very useful for medicinal needs.
  3. If Jungle trekking catches your fancy, one should then look at Periyar or Gavi. You would need to have a week in hand to experience it in full. The trails to trek on at Periyar are well known all over the country, and the wildlife department has various elephant safari and adventure trekking trips on its platter to serve you with. Right from safaris, to bamboo rafting, elephant camps, to plantations, the forest beckons one and all.
  4. For those of you who would like to get a little more close to the natives and tribes of the hills in Kerala, you should check out the Chinnar Trekking plans. For this one would need to keep around four to five days in hand. What you get to see by biking around over here would be dense hills inhabited by the settlers of these jungles. And while you trek around, you would find prehistoric rock art and paintings, holy groves sacred to the tribal folks, settlements and a chance to look closely and learn the culture and traditions of the natives around.
  5. Finally, don't forget the famous Munnar to Kodaikanal trekking experience. And for this, it is best to have a week or more in your hands to enjoy the experience. You would come face to face with the plantations of tea, grasslands, hills, and amongst all of that, you can camp as well.

With so much said already about trekking in Kerala, wouldn't you want to adhere to the call of the sultry siren down south?

It Was an Awesome Trip To Munnar , Pros: Traveling On Month Of July (monsoon Season) Make The Place More Special . The Place Where The Camping Held Has Given Stunning Panoramic View Of The Western Ghats and the Valley of Theni. On Way To Campsite You Can Also have A Chance To Encounter With Wild Animals Which is also an Thrilling Experince. The Dinner and Breakfast Which Provided By the Tour Company Was Quiet Decent. Memorable Moments And FunFilled Trip Is Guarantee . Cons : Food are Really Expensive on Outside Of The Campiste Residency If You Are Planning A Other Activities Than Camping Beware Of The Activities You Pick bcoz In Some Places( Example :Elephant Safari,Etc..) They Charge You More Than It Deserve Since I Had Private Tour I Did Not Have Problem With Restroom Facilities (because Campsite Was Near The Building Of The Tour Company ) I havn't Seen Any Restroom On The Places Of Group Tour Camp So Please Enquire Before The Begging Of Your Camping. --- At Last One Line Decrption --- " Nature Always Wears The Colors Of The Spirits " Live In The Moments In Munnar Have A Good Life :)

Paragliding was a an absolute delightful experience for me. it was my first time and intially it was a little scary but when you start your flight its amazing. also the pilot was really friendly and explaining me everything from important points about the place and his experience of flying. best parts was when he was doing stunts like flying 360 degree. it was a very memorable experience.

"Simply Amazing. If you love adventures , this is a must try. There's Jeep safari, off-roading through the tea estates, Fog covering the way when you reach the top, Mesmerizing view, Quechua Tents, Tasty food, Campfire, 2 km trek to the top of the mountain and last but definitely not the least breathtaking sunrise and feel of heaven on the top. The team organizing this is super helpful and super friendly. Had some difficulties contacting the vendor in the beginning but once we met things went super smooth and the team at the top (Oscar and team) definitely deserves an applause.\nP.S.: Don't miss the Sunrise from the top of the mountain for which one has to trek for 2KMS.

This year I thought to go camping with my friends on the New Year Eve 2019, and we had a super fun experience, the campsite was so beautiful and since it was new year it was a little more decorated and had party vibes. The lush green hills, birds chirping around, it was all so nice. It was so much fun doing the activities planned at the campsite, Totally had an amazing experience, Thanks Thrillophilia for such a memorable New year.

Camped here with my wife for two day one night package. If you are looking for extreme adventure this may not be the place, but if you are looking for a complete cutoff from the hectic city life, the ambience this place offers will certainly blow you away. Choose it if you are looking for a retreat into the wild. The host, food and ambience are excellent. Clean washrooms are an extra! Overall great experience.
