Anaerangal Camp

The Anaerangal Camp is located on a mountain side overlooking the famed Anaerangal Lake and in close proximity to the Papathy shola ('The Butterfly Forest') known for mass migration of butterflies in October and November. The camp has 6 luxury cottage tents – all furnished with large cots with comfortable mattresses, 4 large windows and en suite bathroom.

The Camp has its own kitchen and will provide you with delicious ethnic food and a barbequed dinner on order. The large Gazebo with its inbuilt fire place for camp fires and comfortable camp chairs is the favourite meeting place to swap stories or spend a quiet day reading or just relaxing.

You have range of activities which include treks, plantation walks into the nearby cardamom estate or walk through the vast tea gardens. The high point will always be the sunset trek to 'Phantom's Head' peak to see the spectacular sunsets over the Sahyadri mountains!

Like in Hornbill Camp, we provide you stay in tent houses. We have total 6 deluxe tents (Single fly living tent) with attached bathroom. There will be comfortable beds; en-suite attached European style closet, shower and hot running water. Power is available for lights and fans as well as charging facilities for laptops and mobiles
