This blog is about our recent Monsoon trip to Rottikallu. A small resort nestled at the foothills of Western ghats. Instead of writing about our experience, I thought this time I will do it with pictures. As they say, 'A picture speaks thousand words'. :)

More information regarding the resort is given at the end.

Resort review:

Food: 3.5/5
Activities:  Water volleyball, volleyball, water football, tug of war, gliding, swimming, tarzan swing, short trek, visit to waterfalls. 4/5.

Electricity: Generated by generators. Better carry power bank for cells. 
Staff behavior:  Friendly. 
Service: 3/5.

Ramnath's final verdict. 

Lose yourself amid the green landscapes of western ghat. A must visit place during Monsoon. Pack your bags and leave now.
