The best part of travel is the hill road which comprises of many bends and sloppy roads. The Silver Cascade Falls on the way to Kodaikanal in the hill road is a place to stop at and spend some time. The travel in bike would be amazing than travelling in bus or car.

Overall, a great ride.

Beautiful destination for nature lovers, less population in comparison to Ooty. The best time to visit is from Oct to Feb. Lake is a must see place. Basic south Indian food available and much more.

Really have wonderful moments which we enjoyed. All hilarious moments, nature beauty at its best, dangerous roads are at their best too, creature attacks, in all just feeling WOWWWW !!!!!
Always, if nature lover do not go to regular spots, try to find out new in the roads itself.

Awesome sightseeing places from the Kodai Road, Kodai to Pillar Rock, and then Down Hills towards Batalakundu.

Food is good, ATM facility is there, search for cottages littler deeper to get better deals ( prefer to book in advance). Enjoy the beauty instead of wasting time in shopping and other stuffs.

Have a nice journey and pleasant stay :-)

It is always a very nice travel in the mountains of Kodaikanal. Lots of places are there to visit while on the way to Kodaikanal. Once youi reach certain distance you can feel the chillness of the mountains, and the calmness too. Its a great experience to drive in the hilly region. Travel by car was good.

By bus or car we can only enjoy the hills and views. Its a very good experience for us. My son enjoyed a lot. In the bus we enjoyed by making fun. SRS Travels is very good and their services also is good. Good seats are very comfortable to us. Again I am planning to go to Kodaikanal and this time also i will travel by bus only.
