Keerthi sv Camping In Coorg
Hi this is keerthi vaasan, We are of 14 members for the trip. We reached at afternoon. The climate was really awesome. We started playing volleyball ball after long time. We played like this while we are in college. After some time we went for a trek on water falls. Really a fantastic ride. We took bath the water is nearly to freezing stage. I first really scared to go on. But after sometime my soul got sticked there. While returning from there only my body returned but my soul sticked out there. Food was really more delicious. They served with good respect. They are maintaining it in good way. The best palce to visit with frnds.
Mallikarjun Devaramane Camping In Coorg
"One of the best places for camping. You will love the drive to reach this place, those roads!! so beautiful.\nCan't forget the hospitality of the host. Bahaddur, who is working over there and his kids are so much fun to talk. They served delicious authentic madikeri food. walk around the estate, don't worry Bahadur kids can take you there and be such a wonderful company. Bonfire, you get to meet different people from different places, share a drink, exchange of thoughts, what not. Overall its one of the affordable best packages in madikeri."

Muthuvel Raman Camping In Coorg
It was an stunning experience for me as solo traveler. Location is in 16 km cut from Madikeri towards Talakaveri and last 3 km pathway is very much into the forest and you will be enjoying that. Location is untapped by many and road in the last stretch is not so comfortable and that is the beauty of the place. The place is very much into the forest and you wont here any sound other than birds,leaves and wind. No Wifi and Network is very weak and that's exactly what we need when we are in holidays. Temperature is damn low at night and camp fire sets the mood for it to enjoy. Tent sleep is a different experience for me and i am sure it would be the same for all. Water stream flows nearby and we can go and pass time there. Morning, we walked around 2 Km into the forest to see a jungle falls which is icing on the cake. Trekking path is also untouched by many i believe. Also you can coffee estate to walk around. No need to mention that food is very delicious and so are services. On a whole, I am sure it would be a complete package for a camp day or two. if it is Coorg, this should be your stay place. I landed at thrillophilia accidentally and it is a needed one. If i want to say in Rajini style, "Magizhchi"

The term 'Gentle Giant' might have been coined especially for elephants! This was a very offbeat and enchanting experience. Totally loved our stay and activities like jeep safari, bird watching, elephant interaction for best part of the whole trip.

Located away from the noise and the crowded town of Virajpet- just 9 kms away. In middle of a plantation with quiet walks around. A place to chill. If you are looking for activities, you need to book outside of the place. Self sufficient within itself with a quaint cottages and deck rooms- clean bathrooms. Food was excellent made by Anand. As the caretaker -he was hospitality personified. chilled out place. Requires the approach road to be done up. And some touch ups getting done. Should have your own vehicle. But I recommend the place
