Sparkling blue waters of the Thirumoorthy dam on one side, the mighty mountains of the Anamalai range as a backdrop and tall eucalyptus trees swaying in the wind on the other – nestled in this scenic setting is Camp Splendour; an adventure boot camp dedicated to connecting people with nature.

Upon your arrival at the camp after breakfast, as mid-day approaches, it’s time to put your kayaks into the water and paddle away, into the shimmering blue waters of the reservoir, drifting towards peace and tranquility while soaking in the serene ambience created by the surrounding forests and the mighty Thirumoorthy hills that rise up to form the backdrop.

Paddling under your own steam, you’ll find yourself  left alone with nature where the squeeze of modern life will fade away as you become attuned to rhythms of the wind and the melody of bird-calls. If paddling is your thing, you’ll find your gratification here!

By afternoon, you will be back for lunch. The spread is a delicious home-cooked meal from the neighboring tribal hamlets, that will allow you to savor and cherish the local flavors. Post lunch, it’s time to sit back and enjoy a book or indulge in some fun, play activities the camp offers.

As evening approaches, a local tribal guide will take you for a walk along a small yet scenic trek route leading from the camp that goes up to a point where one can get a clear view of the dam and hills. The hillock is also an archaeological site where one can see the ancient burial site called dolmens from the neolithic age. If you’re lucky, you could get to watch a herd of spotted deer prancing around the water hole during sunset, as you listen to the call of peafowls in the distance.
