Ahoy! We’re a band of happy folks who come up with outdoor activities that are unique to each event. We present to you the Chitth Unplugged.
This is a complete package you see. Not only do we have some uniquely vivid musicians and artists from across the country, they cover a wide genre too. How would you like to listen to a hand pan and didgeridoo jam? Along with flowy LED and Fire Poi performance?
Under a carpet of stars? By the lakeside? Check, check and check.
Hiking and Jungle Safari? Yes. That's on the list too!
The festival is an effort from ADD Ventures Unlimited to showcase a side live music with surreal backdrops and an array in-house activities. This year we’ve ensured you have a place with minimal light pollution so you can see and photograph the Geminids Meteor shower. Yes, we ensured that our festival would fall at the same time. Upto a 100 shooting stars in an hour at peak time, by a lake side in Ooty.
All-Inclusive Limited tickets only, as we can only accommodate a limited crowd. We’re not sure why you’re still reading this instead of booking them tickets already!

- We follow the “Leave No Trace” principles strictly throughout the trip. Participants must not litter plastic or any other non-degradable waste during our entire outing/expedition.
- Trekking and other adventure expeditions are not luxury tours. Although we provide for all the basic facilities, we expect participants to be accommodative and adaptive to the circumstances and varying outdoor/weather conditions.
- All outdoor events and expeditions can be conducted seamlessly if all the members cooperate with each other and provide a helping hand for activities which require team effort. We expect all outdoor enthusiasts to be proactive in collecting firewood, pitching tents, carrying their tents and sleeping bags and in various other situations where such team effort is required.
HEALTH AND PHYSICAL FITNESS
- It is most essential to be fit and have good amount of stamina for a Trek/hike or any extended odysseys (Biking or Backpacking).
- Have a regular workout routine to build your stamina. You would enjoy a trek or an outing a lot better if you have minimum physical fitness.
- We have different categories for beginners and experienced Trekkers. Do check with us for difficulty level before enrolling.
- Although we would have basic first aid kit with us during the outing, we advise you to carry any other personal medications specific to you.
