Camping
Kerala, nesting in the lap of nature and rightly called “God’s Own Country” is a place for all those seeking a holiday getaway. It is the duty of a religious traveller to devote a chunk of time to visit all the bounties the state has to offer.

There are innumerable destinationsin Kerala that will capture your attention. One such place Idukki. Known for its dense forests and mountainous hills, the place has one of the largest river in Kerala ‘Periyar’ flowing through a gorge formed by highest twin statues in Kerala “Kuravan” and “Kurathi” perhaps this is where the district gets its name, the Malayalam word “idukku” meaning ‘a narrow gorge’.

Reaching Idukki
You can reach via train, nearest railway station being Kottayam about 114 km away and via air the closest airport is in Madurai being 140 km.Idukki, without a doubt, is one of the offbeat vacation destinations to pick up for a blissful experience. Although the place can be visited all year round yet the best time to visit Idukki is from October to February.

Season

Summer starts in March with sunny days and pleasant evenings. This weather is suited for visiting places like Keezharkuthu Falls, Ramakkalmedu, Hill View Park and Cheruthoni Dam.

Monsoon

Monsoons are rainy and since there are mountains and damns, it is best to avoid visiting during this season as many attractions might be closed for visit. Not to mention it will be a dampener for outdoor campers.
Winters pay a visit early in October. Thanks to the natural surroundings, the weather remains cool and pleasant making it the perfect time to visit.
Homely food and the scenic views adds good vibe to the whole camping atmosphere. Drive in camps also ensures ease of access. Campper has numerous campsites that are verified secured and family friendly in and around Idukki
While it is always best to get a clear idea of the weather when planning camping in Kerala, the weather should not deter you from making the most of the time that you get away from the humdrum of a busy life and into the wilderness. As Anthony D’Angelo puts it, “Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, bring your own sunshine.”

Camping & Hiking

It is time for you to shoulder your backpack and head to the vast wilderness. The Starry night sky, fresh air and melodious sounds of untouched nature are a balm to tired minds and souls. Recuperate from your worldly cares in the lap of Mother Nature.
Switch off the gadgets
The bane of modern life is our dependence on gadgets. Mental tiredness is often triggered by the pressure of a beeping gadget. The link that is created by the laptop, or the phone or the tablet often negates the time that you keep aside for yourself. Camping is the one vacation that takes you to locations that are out of the connectivity zones. There are no Wi-Fi signals that interfere with your much-needed rest.
Bonding with family and friends
You are closer to your family and friends and give them your undivided attention. This stimulates bonding and togetherness.
Zero Distractions
There are no distractions and tensions that encroach into your private time. It is the perfect time and place to learn new activities, enjoy adventurous sports and in general do things together.
Pet Friendly
It is also a much-needed break that can include your pets. Camping is an outdoor activity which has no restrictions on the presence of your dog. The open wilderness or even a planned campsite welcomes your best friend. Spend time with your pooch and rejuvenate.
Make Memories
The family which camps together shares a treasure trove of memories of things they experience together. Shared memories form the base of strong relationships.
Budget-Friendly Trips
Camping can be as austere as you want to make it. The best camping holidays are often the ones we pay the least for. If your budget is tight then camping could be the answer to your search for low-cost holidays. If you are looking to pamper yourself there is an option for deluxe camping with all the modern amenities thrown in.

Impacts of Camping

gcl6jcb1r9g-justin-luebkeCamping is the only way that I can be as close to nature as possible. Camping breaks the barriers of walls and the stay in a flimsy shelter in the cradle of nature is the ultimate high for nature lovers. The wilderness beckons like a beacon and the mind crave freedom and silence. The breath of freshness that comes in the wake of a great camp in the midst of lush greenery and the vast outdoors is a balm to the weary body and jaded mind. I am a great believer in the adage that “nature is the best healer”. I love to plan camping tours but have had disastrous ones at a couple of instances. Plan well to avoid disappointment has become my mantra especially when I was planning a camping trip Kerala.
There is always someone in the group who is plagued by mosquitoes or finds the amenities too basic or the camping site inadequate. They make no effort to tone down their criticism too! I have no patience with these party poopers and do not tolerate them their tantrums at all. It is a better idea to choose a group that comes from a similar mindset or take a suggestion from a seasoned camp organizer like Campper.com.

There is so much to consider when I plan a camping trip. I prefer long weekends or a weekday and fix the dates well in advance to get the best rates and the choicest of locations. It is also a good way to avoid crowds and noise. The idea of the camping trip is to get away from the “madding crowds” in the first place.
Campper.com has a host of choices for a discerning traveller like me to get away and relax. Leave the hassle to Campper.com and have the best vacation of your life.
