"For this New Year, I want to go on a short weekend getaway from Chennai or Bangalore, somewhere quiet & peaceful, preferably a mountain place with pleasant weather, shouldn't involve too much of travel...is there a place?"
Yes! There is.
Presenting 'Yelagiri Camping Getaway'
Located within 200kms from Chennai & Bangalore, Yelagiri is a charming little hillstation near Vellore town of Tamilnadu. Perched at an altitude of 1700m Yelagiri offers pleasant weather even during the summer months. Surrounded by green hills, valleys, farms & orchards, Yelagiri presents a perfect escape from hectic city life.
Camp in tents amidst green settings in a private campsite, away from the touristy side of Yelagiri and indulge in a variety of exciting adventure activities.
Get your adrenaline pumping by taking part in Water Zorbing, Zipline & an Xtreme Rope Course. Add a dash of fun to the entire trip by indulging in motion sensor games, let sky lanterns fly at night & fill your Instagram feed with whacky neon pics by visiting an artificial neon cave.
If you think this is already too much for the weekend, hang on. You also get to go on an easy sunrise hike, do a bit of stargazing through the telescope, have a nice campfire, lay down in the open & catch a movie or your favorite web-series in an open-air projector screen or request Alexa for your favorite song as you devour a BBQ. Phew!!!
