About
Short Cycle & Trek Kerala Tour is a 4 days trip start with a cycle tour of Fort Kochi, exploring the Jew Town and goes through the highest regions of the Western Ghats. The Suryanelli Treks are such a trek through forest and tea plantations of the Western Ghats. In this trek you will explore the tribal villages, variety of plantations, peaks and different terrains. Anaerangal Camp, set against a large shola forest - high altitude cloud forest - and against the backdrop of the peak they call ‘Phantom’s Head’, the Suryanelli camp is a self contained camp. The camp has 16 large cottage tents – all furnished with large cots and comfortable mattresses, 4 large windows . There is a large gazebo, where you can join in for the nightly camp fire and dinner on order - one would say an ideal meeting ground for adventurers to spin yarns at the end of a hectic day spent outdoors!
