The campsite and resort is located in western ghats overlooking eastern ghats. Our campsite is perfect place for night sky photography and also the sunrise spot.
Alpas camps and Resorts is equipped with camping tents (with 3 variants), a dining hall and Westerised washrooms. We encourage family camping and provide a safe and serene atmosphere for the families and solo travellers.
Alpas means “break free or un-wind”. Our idea of holiday is to break free for the monotony of the routine. Discover in some sense means “learn” something. We at Alpas Camps and Resorts want our guests to have a great learning experience from the nature and also un-wind in her bosom.
We also have indoor games such as Mini table tennis, Dart, Archery, Carrom Board and small collection of books for the guests who wish to relax and stay put in the campus itself.
Kodanadu is a small village in Nilgiris. Around 120 families reside in the village including Toda tribes. Kodanad was once very famous for vast tract of shola grassland forest and some of the remnants of that forest still exist in tact even today.
Kodanad is beautiful all throughout the year. In summers, the visitors can enjoy beautiful panoramic view of Eastern Ghats, Moyar Valley, Rangaswamy peak, Bhavanisagar Dam etc. In winters, the mercury drops up to 6 degrees Celsius, skies are generally clear and guests can enjoy starry nights & spot constellations. In rainy season, one can enjoy beautiful display of cloud drops and lightnings on the eastern Ghats. In the month of June and July, when ever it rains in Kerala, Kodanadu receives strong winds up to 50 – 70 km/h pulling along with it the white clouds. To feel the fast-moving clouds caressing you is once in a lifetime experience. We invite you to come and stay with us to enjoy the beautiful display of the nature.
