  • Have you ever wondered what an unexplored place looks like? Ever had any thoughts about how the tribals of our country live? How would you like to go on an exploration expedition deep inside a virgin jungle and stay with ancient hunting tribals? A place where the only footsteps that have fallen are of the tribal people who have lived there for centuries. A trek which demands of you the strength and perseverance that mere mortals do not have.

    aMadNomad brings you the ultimate Nomadic experience in one of the most ancient forests of our country, deep inside the Nilgiris. We head to Kotagiri, a quaint hill station close to Ooty, and from there our adventure starts. We will be trekking down to the floor of the forest where the river runs and camp next to a waterfall. And when we say trekking, please understand that this is the real stuff, the wild stuff – there is no path, no set route, and an abundance of wildlife all around. We carry all our provisions for both the days, camp under the stars, sleep next to a fire to keep the wild animals at bay, cook our own food, and make a new path in case we encounter an elephant or a bear. Complete this trip and make all your friends go green with envy as you recount the superhuman experience you’ve just had.

    Day 0 (Friday)

    • Start from Bangalore at 9 PM in our mini-bus and get to know your fellow travelers

    Day 1 (Saturday)

    • We move to the trek starting point and say goodbye to civilization as we move into the wild for the next 2 days
    • Start the trek down towards the valley through a jungle so thick that we will have to cut through the vegetation to create a path
    • Stop for a quick lunch on the way
    • Reach the river bed and set up camp in the valley right next to a flowing river and surrounded on all sides by the mountains.
    • Learn how to start a fire and cook your own dinner with the provisions we’ll all be carrying
    • Watch the sunset and the darkness creep in on you as the jungle comes to life in the night
    • After dinner, we light up a bonfire, share stories, and sleep under the stars

    Day 2 (Sunday)

Best part of the trip was i never felt that i paid the money to some group that has organised a trip, but it was trip with friends.

Good to see all new strangers shared a very good bond through out the trip.

Special thanks to "RAJA", who has saved my life.

I enjoyed the company of each n every person part of the camp, including Anand, Mama and Manju (the driver).

Over all this has been the toughest, wildest n adventurous trip that i have ever been.

Hope you enjoyed my company too.. :-P
