Akshaj Dwivedi Camping in Yelagiri
When I saw this adventure at Thrillophilia I started yearning for adventure and booked it for me and my brother immediately. Though we loved the camping part, what we enjoyed the most was the set of amazing activities we got a chance to try during our trip. The tents were clean and the campsite offered a perfect panoramic viewing experience. The food was satisfactory. Considering the price, the experience was amazing.
This package took us to the unexplored lands of Kotagiri. It was spellbinding. The view was absolutely fantastic. If you are a nature lover, this is it! These guys organized it well for us. The trek was easy and they out in effort to make it all the more exciting for us which was appreciable. The food was nice too. Catherine falls was beautiful. If you're a little adventurous, you should take a dil in the falls!
I was tempted to take this package offered by Thrillophilia and it was totally worth the money I paid. The first day was made eventful by different activities planned by them. The most enjoyable was camp games around the bonfire with music. It felt like a scene from a movie. The food they served was average. The next day, the trek to the waterfall was awesome. I'd good people around me. The view was enthralling. It was a really nice experience.

Giriraaj Shah Yercaud Camping
Pick-up and dropped-off were on-time, tents stay expereince was great, thrill and fun activities, amazing-meals, Super amazing weekend we had
25 February 2020
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???
Rajendra Reddy Yercaud Camping
The best way to spend good quality time with family and friends, this Yercaud Camping suitable for all age group, the place is perfect for camping, accommodation was clean, foods were great, the rope-activity, zip-line, and Burma bridge is in good condition, the hike towards the waterfall was fun... Overall nice activities on this camp stay... All-over well-organized and well-maintained.
We came to Nagallapuram once before but didn’t actually trek there as we thought we would get lost. Now it was nice to actually go on a guided trek and spend a night there too in such a beautiful place. The waterfalls were amazing and we took a dip in such clear waters, you could almost drink from them. Special mention to Prabhu our guide, who was very patient with us the entire trip.
Been living in Chennai all my life and had no clue that there were such nice places here. It was a comparatively difficult trek for me as a I was a beginner trekker, compared to my friends who have already trekked before, but our guide, Nachi, was super patient and made sure that everyone kept up and gave us rest breaks whenever necessary. The camp experience and the stay too were really comfortable and nice.
