About 30Km from Ooty, a few km from Emerald Dam, is this amazing treasure trove. Nestled between verdant hills, snuggled next to a lake, is a farm that has stables, cows that provide milk, fields that provide the vegetables, poultry, sheep, geese, fish etc. The views are incredible on the eyes for us city folks. It is quite unbelieveable that there still are such pristine places left in India. Perhaps I should keep this secret to myself. :-)
Our kid loved the rock climbing, monkey crawling over the pond, horse-riding, feeding the animals, watching the milking and playing over the safe campus. The parents actually have time to relax! There are bonfires and dances, and the play room and library. Despite the fact there are a lot more activities than I named here (zoomering and lord knows what other new fangled stuff), the place has a really dreamy feel about it, like everyone's taking a well-deserved nap.
It is obvious that a great deal of thought, and attention has gone into the care of this property. This group always has great chefs at their various properties. But I was very impressed by the staff they had at this site. They have Dr. Brijesh and some good management putting in some real effort to make this place thrive and it certainly is thriving. And as a parent, it is with gratitude that I compliment the owner on picking very mature instructors with whom I felt completely safe leaving my kid for even the most perilous mountaineering activities.
