Rain gear, flashlight, insect repellent, binoculars, lightweight field shirts, T-shirts, shorts, water-resistant shoes, and a jacket for the cool mornings and nights.

Use the loo at Green Valley Hotel, as what follows after Athirapally is a vast stretch of forest land, with no loo stops.

There is a first-aid kit at the property for minor injuries or illnesses. For more serious issues, head to Parry Agro Garden Hospital, which is 4km away (00-91-4253-222488; Upper Paralai; 24×7). In case of a medical emergency, it is best to make your way to Coimbatore.

The bungalow has an electric fence to keep wildlife away, but animals roam freely outside the estate. Don’t step out without a staff member accompanying you at all times. The area is infested with leeches in the monsoon; so carry snuff or tobacco to ward them off.

The management would advise you not to bring kids along, as there isn’t much here to keep them entertained. However, if they do accompany you, it would cost an additional Rs. 1,500/ night (six – 10 years) or Rs. 2,750/ night (over 11 years).

* The property offers a night drive for wildlife sightings, but, as you need to take your own car, it might not be the safest option.
