If you googled for weekend getaway options near Chennai or asked any adventure junkie in Chennai for options, Nagalapuram will definitely feature in the top three.
For the first-timers, Nagalapuram, a part of Eastern Ghats is located around 80 kms from Chennai is home to, hidden water bodies, lush green fields, numerous hillocks, waterfalls and streams that surprisingly flow throughout the year.
While many may have heard of Nagalapuram only few would have visited and fewer would have explored it, largely due to lack of proper, authorised accommodation options. And this has also kept families away from this wonderland.
Presenting a brand new, fully equipped, privately owned campsite in Nagalapuram! The campsite is a part of well maintained & utterly pleasant gated property that houses a dining area, back-up huts and dorms, western / Indian restrooms, adventure games area, a pump set (yes you can splash around) and more.
So what's new that we are going to do? We would be camping in our fully authorised campsite overlooking a hill.
Exploring a lesser-known waterfalls (not the touristy, beaten ones that we all know), Kayaking in a lake surrounded by majestic hills of Nagala (with proper life jackets), going on a sunrise hike to the hill beside our campsite, taking dips in wells and pump sets, playing some random adventure games, stargazing - Yes, Nagala is one of the best spots for stargazing near Chennai and a fun-filled campfire session followed by a spooky night walk.
The entire camping experience is family, kids, women and pet-friendly.
