About the campsite
Located just 300 Kms from Bangalore & 150 Kms from Mysore, Paithalamala is an untouched hill station in the Kannur district of Kerala. Perched at an altitude of 1372m above sea level; Paithalamala is the highest point in Kannur district.
Wedged between the Western Ghats of Kerala & Karnataka; in the fringes of Kodagu Forest; Paithalamala is a popular trekking destination great for Summer & Monsoon Trekking and Camping.
Our campsite is located inside a fully equipped wellness resort.
The camp overlooks Nagarhole Tiger Reserve offering a fantastic view of the tropical forest. The campsite is also filled with native flora & fauna. One can easily spot Malabar Grey Hornbills and other native birds.
The campsite has a fully functional restaurant, a cool lounge area overlooking the mountains, a private cattle farm, in-camp private waterfalls & stream and a slew of indoor games.
If you are tired of going on weekend trips to mainstream destinations like Wayanad & Coorg and are looking for an off-beat yet enthralling destination; Paithalmala would be a great fit.
