Nature lovers, birwatchers, peace seekers or people looking to do nothing but enjoy the hills and the twiterrati of real birds will love this place. Valparai is also a treat for those with a passion for wildlife - spot the elusive tiger, swift leopard and the barking deer. A great getaway from Chennai and Bangalore. Perfect for couples or a small group of friends/ family.

What we love

  • ​Valparai, nature’s aviary, is a paradise for bird watchers. Go on a bird watching trail and spot the Great Indian Hornbill, the Malabar Whistling Thrush, Dollarbirds, Lion-tailed Macaque to name a few.
  • We loved the long walks around the tea plantations and forests of the area. There’s one trail that leads up to the river, we highly recommend that. Roll up your jeans and dip in your feet in the gushing water, the feeling is so refreshing! If you’re lucky, you could also spot animals while on the trek - bisons, barking deer, a herd of elephants, leopards or even the tiger!
  • Choose where you wish to stay - rooms in the heritage bungalow offer the old world charm with spacious bedrooms and plush sitting areas, the cosy wooden chalets come with balconies that offer magnificent views of the teas estates or the super spacious luxury tents that provide for an adventurous stay admidst the tea gardens. Regardless of which one you choose, the experience will be one that’s memorable for a long time to come!
  • The place will feel like a home away from home with the warmth and wonderful hospitality that’s extended by the staff. Each member of the staff will go out of his/ her way to make your stay a comfortable one!

What to know

  • The simple home cooked style meals are full of flavour! Expect nothing fancy but stuff prepared using local vegetables grown in the garden or available in the market. The menu changes for every meal. Wait to be surprised and delighted!
  • Visit the nearby tea factory that goes back a few decades and learn the art of making tea. The staff will walk you through the whole process and you can end it with a tea tasting session.
  • On cold days, the barbeque and bonfire out in the green lawns is just what completes the vacation. Glittering fireflies and the shimmering stars will join you and keep you company till you’re done!
  • If you decide to visit during the monsoons, be sure to carry good shoes as the place gets infested with leeches.
  • Phone connectivity may be patchy. You will need to find a spot where the signal strength is good.
