One of the best places in Wayanad to detox from busy urban life!, Amalgamated with nature An amazing family holiday and very good memories, Great hospitality I highly recommend this place for people who want to detox from busy urban life! Very cordial staff. We stayed in one of the cottages We were looking for our vacation getaway which would keep us away from the Urban busy life - a place that would expose our kids to nature and more of FAMILY TIME Kids had a great experience of the travel from Bangalore to Mysore and then via Nagarahole reserve forest to Wayanad….. It was a pleasure to stay here. One of the best place to forget yourself amidst nature. It is in the middle of If U want to stay aloof from chaotic life then this the place U should visit. This place has been made for those who want a real experience (jungle critters and all!) We absolutely loved our time here, we had planned for 1 night stay but extended our stay for 2 nights, eating some delicious food and relaxing amongst the tea plantations & forest (no mobile connectivity other than VODAFONE) Accessing the place (last 1 km) is little difficult since mobile connections (goggle maps) is very weak but the STAFF is very helpful & they guided us all through the journey…… Vinod Gopalkrishnan

A local guide was compulsory to pass by the forest check. Thank god we had booked from Thrillophilia as we not only got a local guide but permits as well for which we need not wait. We had visited there in October and the weather was amazing and cool. The views are extremely beautiful and we had seen some good mountain views from the top.

This trek was indeed best and needed quite an effort to reach the top. The climb was not so easy so take enough rest in between to regain the energy level. Carry some chocolates and protein bars and wear the shoes you are comfortable with walking and running in. The efforts are worth it once you witness the views and the heart-shaped lake

The trek was a long walk I can say. I had visited there with my friends, and all of us are active sports players, so the trek was not at all difficult for us. The lake was indeed beautiful and unique. I had a good time there.

It was worth an experience. The view of the valley and mountains are breathtaking and magnificent. The heart-shaped lake was cherry on the cake. The local guide with us knows the route well, so he was helpful during the visit.

We had so much fun there. The trail was narrow and we had to climb some rocks as well and the trail was completely surrounded by lush greenery which makes it perfect for a great view. There were coffee and tea plantations as well which looked amazing and passing by those areas the fragrance of tea and coffee was great.
