About the campsite
Yelagiri Adventure Camping

Located around 200kms from Chennai & Bangalore, Yelagiri is a charming little hill station near Vellore in Tamil Nadu. Perched at an altitude of 1700m Yelagiri offers pleasant weather even during the summer months. Surrounded by green hills, valleys, farms & orchards, Yelagiri presents a perfect escape from hectic city life.

In addition to mainstream tourist spots, Yelagiri Hills is also home to stunning trekking trails. It is also fast becoming a destination for adventure sports & tent camping.

Exoticamp's Yelagiri camping experience neatly packages a bit of everything this tiny hill station has to offer into a quick one day itinerary. Camp in tents amidst lush green settings in a private campsite, away from the resorts of Yelagiri. Indulge in a variety of adventure activities like ATV Ride, Zipline, Zorbing, Rope Activities, Wall Climbing & more.

Post sunset, enjoy a nice campfire & barbeque. Do a bit of stargazing. Catch a movie, music videos or your favorite web-series in an open air projector. You could even request Alexa for your favorite song and groove to the music.

Wake-up next morning and go trekking following a dry stream (30 mins). The trail leads to beautifully manicured paddy fields. After catching the nice view you will be back at the campsite for breakfast.

The campsite is equipped with neat rest rooms, back-up rooms for extreme weather, electricity for charging mobile phones & massive outdoor space. You could also meander into short walks to nearby farms, chase butterflies, click numerous photographs, peacefully lay down on the grass bank or sit under the trees and take in the cool breeze.

After checking-out of the campsite, you could explore other attractions of Yelagiri hills. One activity we strongly recommend is a visit to the bird park. The bird park ( offers a unique experience of interacting with exotic birds. There are walk-in bird cages into which you can go through, feed & pet exotic avian friends like African Grey Parrots, Colorful Macaws etc. You could also pick up souvenirs from the main market area on your return.

Our hosts will be happy to guide you through your tent stay in Yelagiri at our site. They could also point you to the right attractions, the right shops to buy souvenirs etc.

If you are someone new to camping or want to take your family out for your first camping trip or are an adventure junkie seeking newer experiences then pick go right ahead and book.

We chose their Yelagiri camping. Well organized and great food. The early morning star gazing session was amazing. Completely safe campsite and clean washrooms. Need to mention the entire team who stayed connected and made sure we reach back safely! Kudos to Gayathri, Jerry and Hari!

Had a wonderful experience at Exoticamp Yelagiri. Kids loved the Astro camp, the stargazing, the rocket making, rocket launch and the other activities packed for them. Events were well-planned, the tents and the restrooms are maintained very well and the organizing staff are very lively and helpful It’s a must must visit for those looking to be with nature and have a enriching tour for their children

We went for friend's get-together with our family to Yelagiri trip organised by Exotic camp , it was really a wonderful experience & we had pleasant time with our family. I really appreciate the Exotic Camo team for their efforts in keeping up to the expectation Will definitely recommend to anyone looking for a family outing or team outing.

Oru oorula oru, Raja

They say jobs fill your pocket but adventures fill your soul. This was such soul filling trip for me. Exoticamp chose a beautiful campsite which was surrounded by mountains dressed in lush green and also had a small stream running nearby. On the night of the camping without any warning or hint clouds where pouring as if sky cracked, Google weather failed. For a moment I thought rain had effectively ruined this whole trip. But it was a blessing in disguise eventually. Rain showed little mercy on the campers and mellowed down to small drizzle. Organizer having good prrsence of mind seized the moment and quickly arranged for Bonfire. They say Bonfire is basically just a nightclub in the mountains. It was, we smoked some grills and popped some marshmallows in the fire. The blessings in disguise was that I never camped when it rained and that was my first to stay on tent while it rained. Little drops falling on tent and water chiseling the rocks in the nearby stream was the music of the night. Next morning was a bliss. A picture perfect landscape that you can have it as a Screensaver. Not all those who wander are lost. We wandered on the trails along the stream and explored the landscape. Organizer lead us on the trail and throughout the trip. The food organized by Exoticamp was amazing. I would have given 5 stars for the food apart from the trip if the app allowed. A special mention to organizer Vamshi, he was very friendly and cordial to campers. As like in any trip I take back lot of memories from this trip. Thank you Exoticcamp.
