HolidayIQ Reviewer Dharmesh Kumar says, “One of the most amazing treks up towards the capital of Shivaji Maharaj's kingdom, the best time is the rainy season, with a group of friends. I spent one full day there and it has been the most memorable trek dotted by innumerable picturesque waterfalls. One should get ready to get all wet, phones, wallets should be kept aside. Morning breakfast compulsory even though there are some vada pav stalls available at the foot of the fort. Takmak Tok at the top is a wonderful view but one should be careful at the top. Wear shoes with a good grip as it gets slippery near waterfalls and keeps one full day aside to enjoy to the fullest. No point in using the ropeway, the fun is in trekking all along and spending the night at a camp atop the hill.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Basil Neelambra shares, “Trekking inside the forest. Longwood shola offers trekking into the forest. However you need a guide to take you inside the forest. Otherwise forest department will not let you. Most of the hotel will arrange for a guide. The best guide is Mr. Boopathy, he is accredited wild life guide. Ask for him. The guide will charge you Rs. 1, 000-2, 000 depending on the number of persons. When you go inside the forest, you will refreshed. Pure oxygen and cool climate will welcome you inside the forest. It's a must to do in Kotagiri. It will definitely refresh you. It will be better if you put on trekking shoes. There will be leaches, so take iodized salt with you. Applying iodized salt will keep away the leaches. Take water bottle along with you. The fun part lies at the camping spot inside the forest atop a small hillock.” Read Full Review
