The Vasyappara Trek
Day 1: Arrive Chinnar Forest station by 2 pm (please arrive Chinnar after lunch, as lunch is not included in our package) pm and meet your naturalist and the team of eco-guides. After a short briefing, you will be guided for a trek through the dry deciduous thorny scrub forests of Chinnar. Trek starts from Champakkad tribal settlement. A two hour long trek will end at Vasyappara. Camp in a traditional thatched hut on a ledge at the top of this hill – an ideal place for wildlife viewing and star gazing. Simple vegetarian food is cooked and served by your hosts. Stay overnight in the hut.
Day 2: Walk around your camp early in the morning with your naturalist. After breakfast, trek back to Champakkad. Take a dip in the river Pampar to cool your body. Throughout the trip, an experienced naturalist or local escort and trained eco-guides from the local indigenous community will assist you. This program will give you a chance to watch Asiatic elephants and gaurs at a close distance.
