Price Range : Rs 2500.00 / - To Rs 5000.00 / -

As its name implies, Camelot is an idyllic, pleasing and picturesque spot of natural simplicity and happiness. Truly, the spirit of King Arthur must be hovering over this place, blissfully forgetting the time gap of 15 centuries and the distance of thousands of miles. The Resort is far enough to shut out the hustle and bustle of Munnar town and close enough to reach it in 15 minutes flat in a jeep/bike.

Just wandering in and around the resort premises, you can sight dozens of rare and endangered species of flora and fauna. Animals like elephants, bison, wild dogs and wild boars are often sighted in the mornings and evenings. Birds like black birds, kites, hornbills and many smaller varieties are frequent visitors. Rare insects like the Atlas Moth are seen in abundance. Wild orchids, giant tree ferns, rhododendrons, etc. are also in plenty around the place.

All around the resort, the tea, coffee, cardamom and pepper plantations remind us that we are in the heartland of the spice capital of the world. For a closer look, any number of specimens of these plants can be seen inside the resort property itself, and a well-kept vegetable farm with all varieties of endemic vegetables is close by. The Camelot Rock View Point, within the property, is just 150 metres up along a longer trekking route. From this point you can see 9 estate mountains: Kannimala, Rajamala, Kallar, Nallathanny, Nyamakad, Vagavarai, Silent Valley, Parvathy and Lekshmi. You can also clearly see Anamudi the highest peak south of the Himalayas.

The Camelot Trekking Pinnacle, a special trekking spot up 1000 metres, above the property, can be reached after 4 hours of arduous climb. But the effort is worth, if the climate is favourable, as the viewpoint will give you a birds-eye view of the high ranges all around, and even a distant view of Kochi city, the 'Queen of the Arabian Sea'. For the long trek to the Camelot Trekking Pinnacle and for jungle safaris, necessary accessories and medicines will be supplied.

The resort has its own micro hydroelectric power source and water supply. The natural clear mineral water collected from a perennial stream, filtered and supplied hygienically is safe and tasty. Bottled mineral water is also bought in sufficient quantities and stocked. You will experience solitary seclusion that will revitalize you for years to come.
