There are tents and campfire facilities in Munnar set up by KSRTC for those who wish to spend the night under the stars. It is located near the old KSRTC depot in Munnar’s Eucalyptus Estate. Rs 200 per person can rent a tent for four people. One person will pay Rs 700 for the entire rent, though.
Tourists to Munnar will be able to enjoy the area’s natural beauty and coolness at a low cost, says KSRTC Managing Director Biju Prabhakar.
If the project succeeds, he said, more tents will be made available.
KSRTC’s earlier ‘Sleeping Bus’ project, which aimed to provide Munnar passengers with overnight accommodations, was a success.
Then came word of a brand-new initiative called Tent Tourism.
Two weeks from now, KSRTC says, visitors will be able to enter the tents for free.
