Panrimalai is a tiny hill village located in the Western Ghats 45 kms from Dindigul & 60 kms east of Kodaikanal. Filled with coffee estates, fruit farms & patches of shola forest; Panrimal offers a munch needed break from reality. The village is cocooned from the modern day hustle and bustle & Instagram travelers.
Our campsite in Panrimalai is set right beside a stream & circled by mountains. You could spend your day exploring numerous hiking trails, taking dips in fresh water streams & nondescript waterfalls. Once could also spot wildlife like Sambar Deer, Indian Gaur, Dole etc. Drive to Panrimalai is an exhilarating experience with almost zero vehicular movement along the Ghat section.
The campsite is well equipped with neat restrooms, electricity in common areas & functional kitchen. Campsite is completely non-alcoholic & serves only veg food.
If you are looking for an off the grid hill camping experience, Panrimalai would be a great choice.
