Reviews for Organizer 4.2
We went for this trek on 19th-21st Oct 2018. We were amazed to see the rich biodiversity at Kotagiri. It's a very good place for birding enthusiasts. There is a lot of wildlife in these Nilgiri Hills. Weather was excellent and we did not face much rains during the trek. We did not take the overnite bus ride provided by the organisers. We went on our own one day earlier and stayed at a homestay and joined the group at the camp on Saturday morning and stayed there for the night at camp and left on Sunday morning. +ves - The group was very energetic and fun. The trek leads were keen to make us explore as much as we can in the limited time we had. They were also very enthusiastic about making the whole trip fun for people by trying to organise fun activities in the evening.-ves - My overall review is negative so obviously there are more -ves than +ves. Will make it objective for future trekkers to keep these in mind as they chose this place for a trekking/camping experience1. The camps are set up in a tea estate down the valley. There is one big campsite started by a tea estate owner and then there are a couple small ones which mushroomed around it. We were in one of the smaller campsite. This was the first major concern. the site was barely enough to pitch 3-4 tents and have max 10-12 people. There are 2 restrooms (which were filthy by the way). The organisers booked 27 people for this trek (+3 trek leads) and there was another group of 10 at the same campsite. So in all we were 40-45 people at a such a small place and there were 12-14 tents pitched next to each other. There was hardly any place to even walk or sit outside comfortably. This was a major dampener in our camping experience.2. Food - the food and camping is provided by the people who own the camping site. Plan the unplanned is just taking bookings and taking people to this campsite and making a margin out of this. The food was very average. I have been to multiple treks and lot of them at very high altitudes. The food is far far better than what was offered here. 3. Lack of experience of trek leaders - The trek leaders had very little or no experience in managing a trekking group. They were not able to assess risks, they had no first aid kits, they had no mode of communication to check the progress, whereabouts and safety of such a large group, and they were not able to guide the group to move at a pace which was required to cover the treks in time. After reaching sites, people were just left on their own to spend as much time as they want. This led to the group missing going to dolphin peak as it got dark. 4. Respect for nature/jungles - Lot of trekkers were first timers and they did not have much awareness on conduct in forests and treks. Some basic rules are avoiding being too loud, making lot of noise, playing loud music etc. What was surprising was trek leads also lacking these basic principles. The whole campsite was very loud specially in the evening and the dance, music and party continued till 11 PM disturbing the wildlife/birds in that area. This was led and initiated by trek leads themselves. Moreover, during the trek, trek leads were playing music on their mobiles which set the example for other youngsters also and they thought thats an ok thing to do. This was really really disappointing. Having fun is important but at the same time, in these zones, we have to respect the forests and the wildlife there and be sensitive. Fellow trekkers - chose this trek if you are a nature lover, contact local campsites on your own and do it the proper way. Do not expect the organisers to add any more value than arranging a shared transportation for you (and making a huge margin on that).I dont have any trust in capabilities of these organisers especially because they don't seem to be nature lovers and have poor planning and execution skills. - by Yogendra for Kotagiri Trek - Camp Amidst The Nilgiri Hills organized by Plan The Unplanned .
