The rolling Western Ghats mark Kerala's and Tamil Nadu's border at 'Yellappetty,' which means 'last village' in Tamil. Yellappetty is surrounded by mist and soft lights, away from the crowds and noise. It's the hills that are home to breathtaking sunrises - ones that will stick in your head like a loving glance.
There's a lot to see there. There are two camps, wild sherpas and cloudfarm. You can park your car at the Yellapetti post office. There's a 3km walk through the tea estate to the base camp. It's better to carry a raincoat than an umbrella if it's raining. There's a chance you'll run into leeches on the way, so alcohol-based sanitizer will be helpful.
When the weather is nice, you can see cloud beds. The best time for weather is from September to January since there can be clouds that arrive from a long distance and cover you (climate matters). Only basic facilities will be available at the base camp.
Carrying power banks and related accessories is a smart idea since they run on solar power. It is possible to stay or just visit without staying. To avoid crowds, the number of people allowed per day will be limited. Furthermore, it helps the team manage the place effectively.
