A panoramic mountainous backdrop, beautiful snaking river, a sprawling coconut farm chequered with lush green grass banks, ducks & rabbits crisscrossing and a heroine in saree dancing... Hahaha...
Imagine a setting like the above...minus the heroine dancing :P and you spending a weekend there? Hmmm... Sounds exciting right?
Presenting 'The Farmville Camp - Pollachi & Valparai'
After having exhausted all the festival holidays & long weekends, we are about to hit the 'no holiday / no long weekend' phase of the year. There is no better way to begin this dreadful phase than by taking a mini but refreshing off-beat vacation.
That's not all! Feast on delicious village food & fresh tender coconuts, bathe in rivers & check dams, chase farm animals, go on a fun auto rickshaw trip to a lesser-known but famous cascading check dam near Pollachi (Featured in many movies)!
If this doesn't suffice, you also have a fun-filled campfire session and in-farm games like badminton, volleyball, basketball, Cricket etc.
Leave from Chennai by late evening
8.00 am: Reach Pollachi refresh and have breakfast.
9:00 am: Take a fun auto-rickshaw ride to the campsite
