This place is one of its kind. Located amidst dense wilderness, the buzzing of insects and gurgling of stream water can be music to your ears while your mobile phones take a hike. I think the best time to go there is when the rains are away and the skies are blue because that's when everything comes to life. The... More

Fringe ford is far far from the madding crowd. It is 268 km from Bangalore. We drove from Bangalore to Wyanad. The drive was beautiful and the roads very good. It helped that we drove in July when the weather was cool and pleasant. The Manager Anil of Fringe ford met us at a particular place and then drove us... More

We drove into silence, punctuated by the short grunts emanating from the Bolero and the twch of black bulbuls (now renamed square tailed bulbuls). Once your ears were accustomed to the quiet that is uncharacteristic of urban areas, the more subtle sounds floated into the far recesses of my ear passages. Croaking, chirping, tweeting and then the pitter-patter of rain.... More

Our six day stay at Fringe Ford was nothing short of perfection. We enjoyed treks with Shaji whose boundless energy and depth of knowledge was infectious! He knows and respects the jungle and we felt honoured to explore this special part of Kerala with him. We were fortunate enough to see monkeys, bison, tropical birds and, on the way back... More

A fantastic area to just relax whilst watching for wildlife and enjoying the blissful peace of the surrounding area. Our guide Shaji was the most lovely person and really made the trip special, even when we encountered the leeches!!!!!!! (Thank goodness for the leech socks!) Even though we did not see any big cats up close we did see the... More

Note:- This is a re-review. This place never ceases to amaze you. Fantastic and absolutely beautiful. The entire property is surrounded by tropical evergreen forests and is absolutely stunning, with no distractions like tv, your mobiles wont work here and the nearest civilization is approximately 4-5 kms away. This is my 5th visit and I absolutely loved it.... again. We... More

A great place to go with a bunch of friends. To just chill and vege out. The place is clean and the food fantastic. We came from Malaysia in December 2012, a group of friends, and to escape to a place like this was super.... We heard a tigers roar, and we saw wild elephants trampling thru the ingle around...

Absolutely LOVED the place and the people running it. It is nestled deep in the mountains and the nearest civilization is 4 kms away. No phone connectivity, no internet connectivity, no TV - Absolute Bliss! The only thing you can do is go on really long walks or read and eat Muthu's fantastic cooking! And Shaji is the perfect guide... More

When you are told that you and your travelling companions have the whole place to yourselves because they know you'd prefer it that way, you know its going it's not your ordinary resort. Fringe Ford is remote and the trip there up needs a story vehicle - it was all arranged for us and we were met in the local... More

What an unbelievably magical place. We were meant to be here for 3 nights but ended up extending our stay by an extra night. Mammooty is an absolute gent, so helpful, accommodating and knowledgable about the land around Fringe Ford. Shaji was a wonder to behold, pointing out elephant and tiger tracks that we would have just have walked past... More
