We reached foot hill camp at 5pm after a ride of approximately 350km ( i.e from Coimbatore to Coorg). We were welcomed by our dear host Ashith Achappa Mookonda, who’s a nature lover, a cycling enthusiast, a eco friendly tourism promoter.
The foothill camp is really nice, we could find well maintained tents which had an extra thatched roof setup and basements. The tents are surrounded by different varieties of trees and plants which gives a semi forest feel. As per Ashith there are 60 varieties of trees around the camp site.
Not just beautiful, though — the trees in the forest, alive and breathing. And they’re watching me.
When the sun shaded out we could see Ashit lighting lanterns all around our tents. The lights of the lantern spreaded a romantic feel.
