I trek a bit and have been to few places. It's steep, exhaustive, risky, changing weathers, a lot to walk. But end result is : Epic! Nature lovers, go for this! Kids, aged, people with fear of heights, weak should not try this. Make adequate supply of energy drinks, water, small snacks just in case. Takes around 30 mins to... More

Whenever I climb the mountains, i experience a rejuvenation and a feeling of am still young.. :P the trekking to the Heart lake at Chembra peak is awesome, starting with the scenic beauty of tea plantations to the mesmerizing western ghats...Though the local forest protecting people try to keep the place clean, you could see a lot of toffee wrappers...

Nice view from the peak. But less space to park the car and too much congested. Good to take selfies!!!

The Nilgiri ranges are an excellent camping trekking site. Exciting wildlife, flaura and fauna. The culture, people and their customs are quite interesting too.

We went there early in the morning and local people asked us to hire jeeps to drop off at the start of trek point. It's a good option to take and it costs Rs. 500/- per jeep. As jeep steers through the misty tea mountains, the view is breathtaking. Greenery surrounded and we are surrendered to nature's beauty. To add... More

It was a wonderful experience trekking chembra peak. We reached at the ticket counter at about 12 noon. On route some Jeep drivers stopped our Innova and told that condition of road is very pathetic and they offered Jeep for Rs 750 for some 3 km or less. On the experience of reading reviews on Tripadvisor advisor on the Jeep... More

Its about trekking and sceneric beauty. Once u get dere u need to take a guide which take Rs 750 per group. Try to add in to another group without travelling the guide to save cost. Starting of trekking is easy but once u start climbing the mountains it gets a bit hard. howevet the sceneric beauty justifies the trek.... More
