HOW IT ALL BEGAN
Having been in the tea industry for three generations, we felt that visitors to the Nilgiris, deserved a holistic experience while at Ooty and hence, the introduction of the Tea Factory and Tea Museum in 2005, at high elevation settings, near Doddabetta peak, which offers tourists a tea manufacturing insight, first hand, along with a history of tea. With over a million visitors annually, and with their feedback we took the initiative to launch Eagles Dare Adventures, Ooty which took shape in early 2016, bringing adventure sport activity to the Nilgiris... Eagles Dare has the tallest adventure tower in South India and offers zipline, sky bridge, bungee swing, rappelling and wall climbing, among other interesting adventure activities. Today, in its third successful year, Eagles Dare, after engaging with over 1 lac visitors has started a unique Mountaineering Institute, the Sardar Patel Institute of Mountaineering (SPIM) which offers a variety of mountaineering courses with a key program, An Introduction To Mountaineering.
Our team is an adventurous set of young men and women, well trained and enthusiastic to pass their skills onto young folk. Some of our team members have been acclimatised to high-altitude settings in Darjeeling and the Himalayan ranges.
The team members have been exposed to rigorous training at some of the best mountaineering institutes in India. With years of experience and expertise at handling the adventure sport mechanism and material, the team more than brings reassurance and high quality standards to their work.
