About the campsite
The Avalanche Camp is located deep into the Nilgiri Bio-Sphere. Avalanchi or Avalanche remains disconnected from the modern world. It's a place where time slows down and lets you enjoy the little joys of life which you otherwise fail to even notice or appreciate - Sipping hot cup of tea on a cold morning, lying by the bank of a lake and doing nothing, looking up at the sky & counting stars, taking a leisurely morning strolls without having to look at the clock.

Cocooned by thick greenery, a turquoise blue lake & near impenetrable Western Ghats it's a place Google map struggles to locate. Camp amidst lush greenery in tents & explore nature trails, spot animals, take dips in ice-cold waterfalls, picnic in Avalanche Lake. The Campspot is so far removed from the civilization that you can only reach the camp through a 2 hour hike. In other words 'if you do a Google navigation it will take you nowhere'

Avalanche is awesome place to relax in the midst of nature with amazing views. Visited this place with friends. Management is so friendly and helpful and do their best to make you feel at home. Safety is taken care. Tents are available with sleeping bags. It was a completely different experience for me and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute, this would not have been possible without exotic camp. Would definitely recommend this visit many more places with exotic camp and would visit you again soon.
