Anaerangal Camp, set against a large shola forest - high altitude cloud forest - and against the backdrop of the peak they call ‘Phantom’s Head’, the Suryanelli camp is a self contained camp. The camp has 16 large cottage tents – all furnished with large cots and comfortable mattresses, 4 large windows .
