Travel is so good. It was very peaceful and safe. The bus reached on time. It has no AC, it has a good seating facilities. Totally the journey was good and peaceful. 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.

We started our journey early in the morning. We travelled in a Innova car provided by Chola travels. The drive was very nice and the driver was also very co-operate throughout the journey. We took the Trichy to Dindugal route and it was very nice and comfortable route. We saw a lot of coconut trees,herbs, tall trees on the way. It was very nice to see that. We enjoyed the trip.
