Expert(s) will accompany the trekkers on a breathtaking route through lush green forests, farmlands, untouched streams & high altitude montane grasslands focusing on the identification and observation of rare and delicate fauna & flora, following animal tracks & photographing the panoramic views of Palani hills and some beautiful & rare wildlife.
Each day will bring a new adventure as we explore the diversity of plants and animals on the forest trails and camp out at night, listening to the call of the wild, sleeping under the starlit sky, and experiencing what it’s like to be a nocturnal animal.
We will also set up camera traps at night to record nocturnal animal activities. Excursions to organic farmlands will be an added advantage as we discover where our food comes from and learn from the people who cultivate what we eat.
