About the campsite
Sheets of emerald green mountains fading into the horizon, blobs of manicured tea gardens, distant winding ghat roads..." Nope, we are not describing a painting!

Presenting 'Camp Cloudscape - Kannimarchola, Thekkady' where the only thing that obstructs the panoramic view from your tent would be sheets of clouds & mist that streams in every now and then.

Located in an enviable 50 acre spice plantation in Thekkady Hills this Camp spot is anyone's dream come true! This 'you drop your camera for a minute & you will miss a beautiful photograph' campsite is home to a variety of flora & fauna. The campsite even houses a small antique museum.

Go on a spice plantation walk, spot native birds of Western Ghats, lie a hammock & read a book or savor the panoramic view from your tents. The campsite also spoils you with a lavish spread including some interesting native cuisine.

Camping in Thekkady.... Just what I wanted after an exhausting week... And Exoticamp did not disappoint. From the time we met our camp leader it was a fun filled experience. Thanks to Yunis who mad the trip an enjoyable and memorable one. The view from the homestay was one I will not forget and will not mind doing a repeat trip. The camping site could not have been better...waking up to a view above the clouds...its just indescribable!!!!! The food at the homestay was delicious and the hosts were such wonderful and warm people. If one is looking for a relaxing weekend getaway, u must get in touch with Exoticamp and they will guide you. Solo travel is fun too where at the end of the trip you make not only friends but memories as well... This is one of my most favorite trips and I hope to do more with them. Keep up the good work, Exoticamp!

It was always a dream for me and my friend to go on a camping trip but never expected it would turn out to be such a fun filled and memorable one. The tea breaks in VAN trip(lol), thekkady drive and the wild animals we saw(lol), jeep drive and my omlet spot (especially for my friends :P ), snacks from Krishnan sir(romba kadamai patrukom avaruku :P ), the beautiful falls and the hot food served nearby (saaptute kulikalam, kulichite saapdalam :D ), the thrilling ride to the camp site and the breathtaking view, the night hike and our selfie attempts in umbrella light(pic credits Saravanan), the constant rainfall at night pouring over our tents and the constant care by organisers to ensure our safety (romba police ah irukingale pa :P ), morning walks with our stupid""kaapathungaaa"" yells and organisers attempts to save us (unga akaaraiya paathu na kan kalangiten (:P ), bachaao talks :P and yummy kerala food, all were amazing. Lots of memories to cherish and remember in our first camping trip. Thanks a lot to Sukanya and Berin for making the trip a memorable one (evlo adichalum thangaranga..ivanga romba nallavanga :P )

A perfect getaway from your busy schedule. There are very few occasions in life when you feel completely satisfied after doing something. one such occasion was my trip to thekkady. If you are person whom life has deprived you the pleasure of traveling together as a group then travelling with these bunch of friendly folks is your answer. A special shootout to Sam who was our host, a humble funny person who will always ensure that your smile never gets faded away during your stay. All the best for your future endeavours sam. My answer to all those people who are having second thoughts would be to just go for it. You will not be regretting your choice of choosing these folks at all. To summarise, Mind boggling views. Friendly folks Safe Environment especially for women. Hygienic food. Value for money. Good for backpackers

We had gone to their Thekkady campsite. This was our first time with unknown people to a campsite and it was nice fun for us. the campsite was amazing with spectacular views, great home food, nice safari, spice garden etc.. Sam was a wonderful host and he made us feel comfortable and made the trip memorable.. All in all it was an adventure, fun, exciting and enjoyable looking forward to next camping.
