Ooty is surrounded by dense, lush green sholas (native forests), wildlife reserves & numerous waterbodies. Most of the these are offlimits to tourists in an effort to protect it's rich flora & fauna and the fragile ecosystem.

This was my first time camping with Exoticamp. I have been following their Instagram page for a while and wanted to go on an adventure. I am so glad I chose this Misty Ooty package. It was so much fun, adventurous, and at the same time super relaxing. The hostess and the staff were all great. Overall such a fun experience!

Living in the hustle and bustle of Chennai traffic can be tiresome. Thanks to exoticamp I got the chance to get away from the mundane and enjoy two days of adventure and fun. The memories and the people I met with are gonna stay with me forever. As a solo traveller I felt at ease and enjoyed the most of what this trip had to offer. I am really glad for the split second decison I made because I have innumerable memories that I will never part with. I would recommend this is to any traveller who enjoys thrilling hikes and spectacular views. And thanks to Lakshmi Narayanan and Gayathri for hosting us.

This is my first camping experience. It was awesome. Quality food served. Quality time spent. Very much enjoyed without any gaps. We had fun activities, trekking to least explored yet safe place, refreshments whenever needed, gaming session, dance. On top of everything, we enjoyed a lot at campfire. Sam was full of energy and talked about every topic that popped out. Chandru enhanced the natural beauty with his lens.
