Kyathadevara Gudi Wilderness Camp
The Biligiri Ranganna Hills (B R Hills) is elusive as much as it is beautiful. A hill range that’s stood sentinel since time immemorial, being where the Western Ghats meets the Eastern Ghats, it gets its name from the temple that stands tall on a high precipice. An enigma of a destination, B.R. Hills is the place for those with a deep love for the wild. Surrender your jarred nerves and car-horn accustomed ears for bird song and the whispering of the trees. It happens at the Kyathdevaraya Gudi Wilderness Camp.
Group Size2 to 10
The Kyathadevara Gudi Wilderness Camp opens up an opportunity for you to get up close and personal with nature. Like the name suggests, it’s everything you can expect out of a camp. It spells adventure and speaks the code of the jungle: respect everything around you. The B.R.T. Wildlife Sanctuary lives up to its name and spotting wildlife is the star attraction in these parts. This is elephant, gaur, tiger, and leopard terrain.
The forests are teeming with over 250 species of birds, including the velvet-fronted nuthatch, gold-fronted chloropsis, blossom-headed parakeet and the malabar whistling thrush – so it’s highly unlikely you’ll ever get enough of this place. Jeep rides into the forests with naturalists to point out anything you’ve missed is part of the programme. We go out twice into the jungle in the jeep – once at dawn and once just before dusk falls. B.R. Hills is also a destination that can be explored on foot.
Evenings are relaxed: you can opt for a campfire (not available in summers and rains) or watch a wildlife movie in the audio-visual room, and unwind. Dinners are served at the Gol Ghar in typical JLR-style: a group buffet affair. If you plan on staying a little longer with us, a trip to B.R. Hill’s can be arranged for. A visit to the mystical Biligiri Ranganathaswamy Temple which teeters on the edge of a cliff is a must. Sloth bears, wild dogs, barking deer, spotted deer, wild boars, Malabar giant squirrels and an entire host of wild animals, perhaps, might persuade you to stay a while.
As camp is situated in the vicinity of the tiger reserve, liquor is strictly prohibited in the campus.
