We have come up with two camping sites, one at Yelappetty and the other at Gap Road, Munnar. The one at Yellapetty has been operational for more than 5 years, while the one at gap road is yet to be operational.

Our location is almost 7000 feet above sea level and has an amazing view, which is best described in pictures than words. The service we provide at our place differentiates us from others.

People sometimes find it difficult to come out of their comfort zone, as they are comfortable with cozy well-built rooms, where you don’t get to see what you have in a place like ours. Trekking and camping are believed to be tough
tasks, which is not the case though. Our camp is also completely secure.
