If you want a comfortable and luxurious tour, also budget is not a constraint then you can stay in Club Mahindra Resort.

One more option is you can experience a homestay. You can cook your own food, talk to locals about their lifestyles and can experience how it is to live on mountains.

I did camping because the experience that camping will give no luxury hotel can give and the view from camping site was just breathtaking.
