The Shinrin Yoku Experience
Disconnect to Connect. Spend a weekend in the Shola Forest surrounded by lush greenery, a gurgling stream and the wild. Discover the practice of Shinrin Yoku at The Great Shola Camp (click for images) at Wayanad.
The Japanese practice of forest bathing is proven to lower heart rate and blood pressure, reduce stress hormone production, boost the immune system, and improve overall feelings of wellbeing.
About the location:
We have set our base on a few acres of grassland on rolling hills of the Western Ghats in Wayanad. Beyond the horizon the vista opens to fold upon fold of shola and grassland habitat, disappearing into the mists of the Brahmagiri range that stretches across the border to Irupu in Karnataka. The ranges of Iritty stand silhouetted in the distance as the sun sinks in the west.
This is a holiday that exposes the individual to a new way of thinking, a chance to appreciate the local fauna and flora and to be part of an experiment that redefines the meaning of a community living in harmony with nature.
