Totally cut off from the real world.no phones, no tv , just the sounds of nature around us.
We stayed here for 3 nights, and what a stay it was! My 3 year old son fell in love with this open, green place and most of all, the host shaaji, who treated him almost like his own son.
Our treks in the forest were serene. Shaaji even picked up my son on his shoulders because he got tired mid way!
The food was luscious. Muthu sir cooks with all his heart and soul, and it showed in the food.
We reset our minds to peace and quiet and got back refreshed.
The only thing that could be improved, would be the quality of the beds.apart from that, lovely place!
Very special place to be able to stay
The food was plentiful and delicious (veggie available).
Shaji the guide made our stay by explaining everything we saw and taking us on guided treks morning and evening. We looked for evidence, trails, scats and prints and sometimes the animals themselves.
Also fantastic treks to the nearby peak, waterfall in which we bathed, and around the plantation that has now gone back to nature.
Lots of evidence of tigers and elephants and we very lucky to see leopard, bison, rat snake, macaques and langurs.
Lovely evenings sitting around the campfire. Would not change this place in anyway and would love to visit it again.
A place you should visit atleast once in your life. Awesome location, a guide who knows the forest inside out, good food.
Great place for birding, hiking and spotting wildlife.
Make sure that you carry your binoculars and camera.

Blissful Nature and Comfort at Fringe Ford
Perfectly situated in a beautifully remote valley surrounded by forest is the gem that is Fringe Ford! You will be well taken care of with all meals deliciously catered and accommadation that is comfortable, spotlessly clean and full of charm. Wonderful walks throughout the 550 acre estate are expertly guided by the intrepid Shaji. This is not your glitzy modern resort but rather a place for communing with nature whilst having all your needs taken care of; a rare treat in this burgeoning world.
A natural paradise.
A complete escape from the hectic world beyond. As you journey up the mountain you leave noise and distraction behind to focus on nature and tranquility. Yet when you arrive you are greeted with comfort and outstanding food. The views are fantastic and the staff are incredibly knowledgeable about the wildlife right there on the doorstep. On our first night a family of India Bison stopped just below our room with a civet cat in the tree above. Over our three days we saw wild elephants and the profusion of butterflies and birds.
