Silent Valley National Park - Accommodation

Silent Valley National Park - Accommodation
The forest guest house at Mukkali has dormitories and 3 rooms.  The inspection Bungalow at Sairandhri has 4 rooms with solar powered electricity. There is no other private lodging facility available anywhere nearby. Hence it is best to book your accommodation in advance.
If your focus is nature, then it shouldn't matter. Ensure you are prepared for power cuts, which are very frequent. The forest guest house is at a good, peaceful place, with the Bhavani River just flowing behind the guest house.
More lodges are available at Agali Hills, 20 km.
