All about Camp PiT – Cycling & Astronomy.

This weekend overnighter combines cycling, trekking, camping and astronomy into an action packed tour. Denkanikottai, Melagiri and Aiyur forest, the regions covered in this tour, are famous for their flora and fauna and brilliant day and night skies. Apart from the cycling/tour guides, we’ll also have an astronomer with professional grade equipment to give you introductory guided sessions into the fascinating world of astronomy and cosmology.

Expect great food and hospitality at our basecamp. It is surrounded by pristine forests, with clear unpolluted skies and is the perfect place to unwind with your telescopes.
