Who does not enjoy a good trip with friends, family or alone? But every person has their own prefered destinations. Some may fancy white sand beaches and other serenity of mountains and forests. Do you like to be active throughout the day playing games and indulging in outdoor and indoor activities during your holidays? Then there is a rocking place for you in Nilgiris.
The Wild Planet luxury resort, which is spread across hundreds of acres of land, is situated near the Bandipur and Mudumalai national parks on the Kerala-Tamil Nadu border. The resort offers the experience of wilderness and is a favourite destination for nature enthusiasts and techies who long for a digital detox. The Wild Planet, which is in the midst of rain forests of the Western Ghats, has a storehouse of surprises for the visitors.
Zipline over the mountains
Are you ready for an adventure ride over the decked tea gardens and placid lakes with all safety measures in place? The zipline ride provides a panoramic view of the blue mountains, the verdant rain forests and the majestic Mudumalai tiger reserve.
Sky-walk floating bridge
Experience the thrill of floating through air by walking through a hanging bridge suspended at a height of 20ft with the help of two parallel ropes. Safety harness with a guiding rope will help you to cross the bridge. This exercise will improve your balance and coordination and put your alertness and sharpness to test.
You have to move like a military commando with the sole strength of your hands to reach the finishing point by hanging on a rope suspended at a height of 32ft. Here your strength and stamina are put to the test.
Kayaking in lake
An artificial lake has been created in the middle of the tea garden where tourists can go boating. Both single and double-seat boats are available.
Don't be crestfallen if you are not into outdoor activities as there are many indoor games at this luxurious facility. Table tennis, caroms, hand soccer, dart, and board games are waiting to entertain you. One can also play cricket, badminton, basketball and football.
The tourists can experience horse riding on a 250m horse riding track by manoeuvring specially trained horses.
Plantation and rainforest walks
Guided trekking to the Churulimalai hill awaits you at the resort. The breathtaking view of the Nilgiris and Wayanad hills from atop the Churulimalai hill is something out of the world. A walk through 70 acres of tea, coffee, pepper, and spices plantation is refreshing. The plantation walk is equally informative as a guide will take you through the history of each plant.
Another opportunity to be on the lap of Mother Nature is the walk through the rainforest that will expose you to scores of trees, plants and wildflowers, among others. The place is also a paradise for bird watchers as there are rare species of feathered friends, including the Giant Hornbill (Malamuzhakki Vezhambal), in the region.
