This is my first camping experience. It was awesome. Quality food served. Quality time spent. Very much enjoyed without any gaps. We had fun activities, trekking to least explored yet safe place, refreshments whenever needed, gaming session, dance. On top of everything, we enjoyed a lot at campfire. Sam was full of energy and talked about every topic that popped out. Chandru enhanced the natural beauty with his lens.

Simply awesome. Experience is something very different compared to other trekking camps. Must try. No Alcohol. Completely safe for solo girls who would love to travel alone. You make so many friends. Just go and experience.... They will show you life.
