About the campsite
There is much more to Tamil Nadu than just Ooty, Kodaikanal & Yercaud. Tamil Nadu is a treasure trove with a lot of hidden gems yet to be uncovered and explored.

Once such gem is Kalvarayan Hills. A part of eastern ghats, Kalvarayan Hills is located in Kallakurichi district 150 kms from Pondichery and 250 kms from Chennai. Kalvarayan hills or Kalrayan hills is divided into two sections. The high ranges are known as Periya Kalvarayan Hills (Large / Big Kalvarayan Hills) standing at 4000 ft. and Chinna Kalvarayan Hills (Small Kalvarayan Hills) at 2700 ft.
With rugged mountain terrains, some breathtaking view points, unexplored waterfalls, endless coffee, areca nut & pepper plantations; Kalvarayan Hills is fast becoming an adventure tourism attraction. Because of its raw nature, very few tourists visit Kalrayan & hence very limited stay options.

Presenting an exclusive private campground with tented accommodation & back-up rooms at Vellimalai in Kalvarayan Hills. The campground is set amidst a sprawling pepper plantation & borders bamboo forest on its boundaries. There are roof top tents with basic rooms underneath and also a tent area amongst the silver oak trees.

Campers could spend their day exploring the raw nature of Kalvarayan hills, go on hikes, visit viewpoints, spot birds, do fishing in our in-camp pond or just put your feet up and relax.

The camp provides all basic amenities for campers including neat restrooms, provision to cook in the outdoors (on request) & an in-house kitchen that serves delicious meals.

There is also an array of outdoor games (badminton / volleyball etc)
