Be prepared all the nature enthusiasts and the newbie living in and around Bengaluru to explore the mystical forest and village residing amidst the wild mountains in Kurangani Hills. The place is situated just 480 kms away from the city near Bodi in Theni district. It is in the vicinity of the famous Kolukkumalai Hills which stands at an altitude of 8,000 ft. and is known as the highest place for tea plantation.
The trekkers will begin the journey from Kurangani village to Top Station through Central village. In this 12 to 13 kms uphill journey, you will be crossing through the dense woods, long grassland and edgy steep of Kurangani Hills. In between, you can enjoy showering in a waterfall. The chilly atmosphere, low hanging clouds and breezy wind are going to accompany you. In this duration, you will also observe closely the flora and fauna of Western Ghat forest.
As you set up your campsite at the peak, you can witness the enormous world and glance the panoramic view of mountains. Take a deep breath while bon fire and dinner will be arranged for you. After the chit chat and some musical night, you can fall asleep under the sky.
The freshness of the morning will make you hate leaving the place. You descend to your base camp through the path where you can spot wildlife creatures like Indian guars, barking deer, langurs, wild cats and if lucky then, leopards and tigers. After lunch, you can get back to Bangalore with your mind full of Kurangani Hills memory.
