Nature is beautiful but road condition is so poor. In between journey Palani temple is so great as its located on the hill. Journey was peaceful due to greenery on both side of road. We don't know the name of god but temples are great in that reason. In future I want to visit Madurai lakshmi narayan temple.

Excellent location Kodaikanal. Excellent whether while climbing ghats of Kodaikanal. Feels like you are out of mind. Forget everything back and enjoy nature. Roads are very narrow. You will feel like clouds are touching you. You will feel you are on the top most hill of the earth.

We have booked a cab through Coimabatoretaxi from Ooty to Kodaiakanal. Its a comfortable and pleasant ride. Driver was cooperative and good. There are many restaurants and dhabas to have food and it took almost 5-6 journey to reach Kodaikanal from Ooty. Overall, trip was good and nice.

There is no public transport available from Ooty to Kodaikanal. So, we had arranged the journey before around 1.5 months from from a local hotel of Ooty. If you want a comfortable journey, then I think you need to hire a private taxi/cab, but it would be very costly. So, if someone is ready for that then they should travel by taxi Only. There was no problem in travelling though. The bus stopped on regular interval for refreshment. It took 8 hr to reach there.
