Kodaikkanal City Guide

KodaikkanalNature at her most beautiful. Where the ochre earth sayly covers herself in emerald silk-That is studded with gems of sheer, glittering water. The mist is her shawl, covering her with mystique and magic. And amidst all this is you, nature's own creation. The place is Kodaikknal, secludely situated 2100 meters above sea level, in the beautiful palani Hills.

Kodaikkanal is 120 Kms from the bustling city of Maudrai and at least tens and thousands of Kilometers from the mundane. Perhaps why those who visited this hill station have come back enchanted and thrilled.

The wooded slopes of kodaikkanal are filled with surprises. Kurinji a plant special to that region, turns the slopes into a sea of purple- once in 12 years!

Step out of your room and right onto a star shaped sheet of glittering water. Yes, the kodai lake dominates this sleepy hill station. But wait a minute, the lake is actually man-made Go on, take that boats and paddles away.

Silver Cascade FallA short walk from the lake (yes, walking is the best way to reach any place interesting in tiny Kodai) and you can enjoy a magnificent display put by nature at Bryant's perk.

Those with stars in their eyes, can catch a glimpse of the heavens (literally speaking) at the Solar Observatory and from Kodai's two telescope houses.
