    This rustic mountain log cabin set in the Kurinjimala Sanctuary near Munnar is everything a nature lover could want.

    Truly Out There

    The Only Place Log Cabin is quite literally the only place in the area it’s in. Set 40kms from Munnar, the property is located near the town of Koviloor. Private transport is recommended and the property has ample car parking space. The construction is emblematic of class English countryside homes, thanks to its stone and naked brick walls, indoor fireplace and sloped ceilings {with skylights!}. The spacious 1bhk cabin can comfortably house 5 guests thanks to its three single beds and one double bed {all with thick comforters!}. The house also has a cosy living room with couches, a cute wooden picnic table and a stone bar counter.

    Amenities wise, there’s electrical sockets all around the house, western style bathrooms, a functional kitchenette but no central heating, so that fireplace is just as much a necessity as it is decorative. However you didn’t come this way to stay inside all day, outside is where the magic is. You’re surrounded by jungle on all sides and there’s plenty of trekking trails all around that take you through farms, jungles and even to waterfalls! If you want to chill outside that’s totally doable too, as there’s a fire pit with place for a campfire and a barbecue, wooden logs as seating and plenty of lush green grass to lie on! Do note that only BSNL offers cell phone coverage in this area.

    Nature Lovers

    The owner Mr Giridhar and his wife Sreeja will be present to settle you in at the property and to assist you with excursions like safaris and treks {night safaris too!}. They’re even happy to offer you home cooked meals at the property if you so wish. Being in the Kurinjimala Sanctuary means that you also have plenty of wildlife to spot. There’s elephants, Gaur, Nilgiri Langurs that can be spotted from the property and if you’re lucky you’ll even get to spot the endangered Nilgiri Tahr. Surrounding the sanctuary are other protected areas that have even more wildlife like tigers! So we highly recommend checking out the safaris. Prices start at INR 1,500 to INR 2,000 per person per night if you’re a group of four or five. All in all, if you’re a nature lover you’ll have a thoroughly enjoyable time here. Just don’t forget your binoculars and camera!
