The forest calls each and every one of us. Only a certain few hear the call - Anonymous
"Calmness - a feeling of calm; an absence of agitation or excitement. peace of mind, ataraxis, peacefulness, repose, serenity, peace, heartsease - the absence of mental stress or anxiety. easiness, relaxation - a feeling of refreshing tranquility and an absence of tension or worry; "the easiness we feel when sleeping"
Google peace and tranquility and this is what you get. Experience every bit of it by camping deeper into the rain forests of Wayanad where you are cocooned by the towering trees of the jungle, chirping birds, thick vegetation and the trickling forest stream.
The unpredictable nature of weather there could beat any Hollywood movie for unexpected twists in the plot. You could be basking in the glorious sunlight one minute and the next minute you would be drenched to the Bone in pelting rains. Layers of mist that could roll in on and off lend that element of mystery & thrill to the whole camping experience. The excitement catches you the moment you hop on to a 4 wheel drive Jeep for a twenty-minute bumpy ride to the camp spot.
Watch an overwhelming sunset against chembara peak, a sunset that would silence us, a sunset that would bring our fond memories rushing back. Have a campfire, get to know people from different walks of life, share experiences, make some new friends. Relish simple but flavourful local cuisine, trek to wild streams, take a dip and feel refreshed.
What's more! You also get to indulge in adventure activities like Zipline, Rope Walk, Burma Bridge, etc.
The route from Bangalore to Wayanad takes you through wildlife reserves and chances of spotting Indian Gaurs, Elephants, Spotted Deers, Wild Boar, etc are higher.
