    Hi,

    I am visiting Chennai in June. My children are 14 and 8 yrs old. I am looking for some fun stuff to do outside chennai city. Any suggestions for trekking, any nature hikes etc. I am familiar with most stuff in the city but am looking for stuff closeby--1 day trips to a waterfall, nature park etc.
    Also, anyone familiar with Tarsha water sports. I saw their web page but none of the phone numbers work. I was not sure if the place was still in business.
    I am new to this site but it really nice site.

    Thanks

    Srinivasan,

    Pretty addictive site isn't it. welcome abroad. i am not sure about the water sports from Tarsha, do put in your review here if you do visit.:coffee.

    Adventure sports. i remember reading about trekking camps from the chennai trekking clubs. you could check out tada on the border of andhra/tamilnadu which also has a water fall. but trekking to tada is advised if you are a big group and have more experience. apart from this you could also do nagalpuram hills.

    for other adventure sports you could check out yelagiri too. all these are one/two days depending on your interests.

    you can check out the nanmangalam forests, with permission ofcourse for birdwatching too this is near medavakkam, and is a reserved forest.

    The govt. of t.n has water sports at Raindrop boat house at, mudaliarkuppam (a joint venture) which offer para sliding and water skiing.
