Sabarimala is a place of worship. Most Hindu's predominantly from Kerala fast for 41 days and then proceed to see Swamy Ayyppan. Absolute abstinence and vegetarian diet etc are rules to follow before you go. The Mountain climbing barefoot really tests your patience and you get to know how good or bad your state of health is. Though there are guest houses by various Government departments, there is nothing private or luxurious. On purpose this destination has not been commercialised and lacks infrastructure. Basic amenities and hygiene are just not there or the Government is doing nothing to improve a devotee's experience. Toilets Indian style, No running water, Basis street food is what is available. We got rooms due to the kindness of an Executive Officer and the govt rooms are on a first come first serve basis. Unless you are connected to large donors, it is not possible to stay for long
