If you’re on the lookout to get away from the maddening city life or to take a break from the monotonous corporate lifestyle, look no further as we have answered your call. What better place to simply unwind and relax your mind and bodies than at the ‘Princess of Hills’- Kodai. But as always, here at Plan The Unplanned we do things a bit differently and this time it’s no different. We’re taking you to explore a side of Kodai that you barely get to see nowadays, away from the tourist crowds and into untouched and pristine lands.

Located 40 km from Kodaikanal town, this campsite of ours offers everything that Kodaikanal once was minus the negatives. A place where tourism has yet to leave its mark with fairytale-like landscapes, pristine water bodies, crisp and virgin mountain air, picturesque sights and landscapes all around. Get transported back in time as you spend a weekend doing nothing and everything, at a place straight out of heaven.

This Kodaikanal Trek and Camping itinerary is specifically designed for those who simply want a laid back weekend and want to take things slow and at their own pace in the most scenic and enthralling locales along with a dash of adventure.

I went Kodaikanal camping with PTU( plan the unplanned) . It was an amazing experience. Within the first 2 hrs of the trip I was able to know every member of the group, thanks to all superb games and activities by trek leads ( Akshay & Debasmita). Offroading to the campsite in jeep was outstanding. Campsite’s location was superb and there were many things to do in campsite like archery, football etc. Food was good. We explored new trails to unknown waterfalls. Overall I can say that these two days was unforgettable moments of my life. Thanks a lot PTU and trek leads ❤️
