Kotagiri Trek – Camp Amidst The Nilgiri Hills | Plan The Unplanned- August

Multiple days 10:00 PM - Kotagiri · Kotagiri · Bangalore

Let us connect to the roots of raw nature and spend some time making new friends, camping, watching the beautiful sunset and stare up at the starry skies. Covered with a vast expanse of lush green forests, the Kotagiri Trek is the perfect amalgamation of nature, serenity and cuisine. A typical forest trail crosses emerald blue lakes, frothy waterfalls and a large ambit of tree plantations. It is characterised by very rich plant diversity and exotic and endemic animal species along with two endangered animals – Lion-Tailed Macaque and Nilgiri Tahr. Pack your bags to wander in the wilderness and be mesmerised by the beauty of sheer beauty of the Nilgiri mountain range. Experience the cool weather and be bewitched by the aroma of tea gardens. Spend a night in a tent, under a star-lit sky and share some exciting stories with strangers over the barbeque. Travel! Before you run out of time.Spend some time in the lap of nature, away from the work deadlines and concrete life. Pitching tents in the wilderness, making barbeque, relaxing in the undulating hills, all this surely will be a concoction of thrill and delight.
