We, a group of 5, suddenly planned for Kotagiri trip to chill out from the early Summer like weather in Mysore. Thrillophilia offered us a very reasonable price for the trip. Everything was well communicated from their side right from the booking details to the proper destination details. In Kotagiri, the camp life was love. Food, which is always the backbone of a trip, was at it's best there. A total trekking distance of almost 8-9 Km was very well guided by the vendors. I'll always remember the early morning of the camp, when the temperature at 5 am was around 8°C,and the lush green tea garden was looking more than awesome. A lovely and memorable trip for all of us. Find below the pics taken out by us on this trip. Thanks a lot to Thrillophilia for making out this trip a successful one. They really deserve a perfect 5/5 review from all of us. Did I forget to mention about the Catherine Water Falls and the amazing Bonfire???
