DETAILED ITINERARY

Day 0:
Overnight Journey from Chennai. The Kolukumalai base Suryanelli is 600kms long drive. A brief intro about the treks and things to do and don’t will be given along with the few ice-breaking sessions to make everyone in the group to bond with each other. As it is said simple dinner makes the travel delightful we encourage everyone to have a simple dinner for the journey at night.

Day 1:
Once we reach our campsite, we will refresh, have breakfast, pitch tents, and arrange everything to accommodate ourselves. Then the trek begins towards the Yelamudi peak with packed lunch. The trails are very well marked that leads us straight into the forest, the camping in the peak is prohibited due to heavy winds in the peak so eventually, we have to get back to our camp after the trekking for dinner. Trek covers crossing several small streams on our way to the peak from which we can refill our bottles, the water will taste as nectars. Climbing might seem hard but trust us, the view is beautiful at the top. The view never fails to delight the tired souls of the trekkers. Getting back to the campsite is a walk in the park but you won’t forget the view from the top for the rest of your life and your mind will say it’s worth climbing. The most awaited dinner will be served for you at the campsite.

Day 2:
Treat yourself with the adventurous offroad jeep ride to witness stunning sunrise at the Kolukkumalai peak. And after breakfast we will wrap up our things, then we will start our return journey to Chennai and will be arriving at 4:00 am in the morning.
