About the campsite
If you googled for weekend getaway options near Chennai Nagalapuram will definitely feature in the top three. Nagalapuram is a small village located at the foothills of The Eastern Ghats around 80 kms from Chennai. Nagala is home to lush green fields, hillocks and numerous hidden waterfalls & streams that surprisingly flow throughout the year.

While many may have heard of Nagalapuram only few would have visited and fewer would have explored it, largely due to lack of proper, authorized accommodation options. And this has also kept families away from this wonderland.

Presenting a brand new, fully equipped, privately owned campsite in Nagalapuram! The campsite is a part of well maintained & utterly pleasant gated property that houses a dining area, back-up huts and dorms, western / Indian restrooms and more.
So what's new that we are going to do? We would be camping in our fully authorised campsite overlooking a hill.

Exploring a lesser known waterfalls, Kayaking in a lake surrounded by majestic hills of Nagala (with proper life jackets), going on a sunrise hike to the hill beside our campsite, stargazing - Yes, Nagala is one of the best spots for stargazing near Chennai and a fun filled campfire session followed by a spooky night walk.

It was my first ever camping. We 3 girls went there with lot of questions in our mind like how it will be..But it was a very fun filled,safer and thrilling experience..Best thing is you can have your own time there and they respect ur 'Me time' completely. Now i believe that one can make a bags of memories within a day. I celebrated my birthday there .They arranged surprise events so well, standing in the middle of totally new people and hearing "Happy Birthday" was unexplainable feeling..Thank you exotic team!!

Worth and value for money! You will learn something new from the Exotic Team! Alcohol and Smoking is strictly prohibited from the camp which is very good! I could see kids enjoying with the parents and vice versa! Its safe and they keep you occupied all day with new ideas !
