“The prospect of adventure is as simple taking the first step – Helen Keller”
A team of 64 students and 5 staff members were on the mission to a daring and enduring camping activity at Thenmalai. On 21st February 2014 the team set its expedition to the Thenmalai ecotourism centre, Kollam, Kerala as a part of Adventure club camping activity. The exciting five hours of trip by the bus and half an hour travel by the jeep landed us safely into the wilderness of nature. The tired team settled in their tents for a while and refreshed after a delicious Kerala’s traditional fish meal.
