Trekking and water adventure...what else can be so tempting especially for adventurists like me. This things give me my Kick. Wonderful place and everything is just up-to-the-mark. I'm certainly exploring more of South India now and to get the best of South I prefer reading thrillophilia reviews .
It was a very well organised trek by friendly and courteous hosts. Shahid, Danny, Habib and Avinash were great and were fun to trek with. Homestay near Shuntikoppa was beautiful with coffee plantations close-by and it was raining the whole time. Trek is an easy to medium range one. Except for the rain and leeches (which we were informed earlier) there is absolutely nothing to point out in the trek. We met many new people and it felt like college days all over again. Loved this trek and would definitely recommend it to everyone.
"Wow....It was a great trek. I must say Thanks to Thrillophilia and Special thanks to trekking team. We have enjoyed every moment of these 2 days and we will cherish these moments for our lifetime.The trek was not easy as we thought. Lot of sweat, efforts, rest breaks in between...But it wouldn't have been this much great, if it was not planned and executed the way the team did. Hats off to the guys Anjan and Harshit. They used their experience all the way. Set up a detailed, organized plan and executed the same very professionally. I can say, we are able to complete the trek with ease only because of their precision planning and execution. We enjoyed the trek as a whole and it would be difficult pick a few from the whole list. But I have tried to select the few activities/incidents/plans which made the big difference: 1) Tasty Home food: When you are sweating every step of the trek and Hungry like never before, only thing you want is tasty, healthy, sufficient home made food. Team provided all this at the right time. It was not the case for other teams. 2) Professional Planning: First day we trekked only half way took rest for the second half. And the next day, we started very early at 3 AM with the torch light. This was the the master plan, because under the Sun it is very difficult to trek KP. 3) It was like a family trip: We never felt Anjan and Harshit were outside people. They have treated, instructed, take care of us very well. 4) Proper Instructions: Team told us what to carry and what not to carry. They have briefed the detailed the plan well before. Given enough time for relaxing and they were very friendly in their behavior. 5) Personal Touch: Anjan has given his personal touch for every activity. He could have easily told to have food in Bhattara Mane. He could have told it is not possible to prepare Bajji and Papad on the mountains. But they have treated us like a family, did all the above and put is best efforts to make us happy. And early morning at 3AM prepared Ragi Malt to keep all of us energetic hike the mountain. 6) Enough: I have already written so many words. I will stop here. To put it in one word, the trekking was outstanding, simply superb and if you are passionate about trekking please try once. But better if you join the same tour operator as ours. They make it easy. They are very passionate and professional. All the best."
"IT was a good experience DANY the coordinator did very well the way he coordinate is superb hats off Dany"
