"My Wife's Birthday @ Kodai"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Apr 24, 2012
We went to Kodai on on the eve of My Wife's Birthday in the month April this was a surprise to her till we reached the destination; for which i had started planning from Mid Jan itself. Being a Season i had to book hotel travel; and other stuffs for my WIfe's Birthday Stuff.. Making it a big Surprise for her.

We had started on 5th April night by BUS and she wasn’t still aware where we are going i had somehow managed to keep her away from knowing the destination on 6th Moring when we got down it was surprise to her and her face was worth watching it.. I just missed taking that snap....

I had already booked my Hotel at Hotel SIlver Springs the Suite; they had offered me a good rate and their service was very good. That day we went for Trekking tour arranged by the Hotel itself as the Forest Tour wasn’t available as Elephants had come inside they had stopped allowing people but the Officials assured to allow us tomorrow.

We Enjoyed the Echo Point, 500 Years OLD Tree ; Lion Cave; Pambar Falls, The La Saleth Church & the most important Dolphin Point. We had very good Desi Lunch. Evening watched a Tamil Movie at a Local Theater

Second Day, My wife’s Birthday it was special went for a Forest tour where we had a look at Berijam Lake, PINE Forest, Upper Lake View, Silent Valley; Kurunji Aandavar Temple, Palani Hill VIew… Etc.. Had dinner at Dominos

We had Planned the local sightseeing on the third day so that we don’t get tired while we board the BUS back to Bangalore here I liked the Coakers Walk, PILLARS Rock, Kodai Lake , Cycling and other more stuff and in the evening we carried a great moment of Kodai in the evening back to Bangalore.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Astoria Veg restaurant, Dolphin Nose, Echo Point (KHATARNAK POINT)

Activities & things to do: Forest Tour, Trekking , Local SIght Seeing, Romantic Place.

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Veg option are less , Good For Non Veg,... A good romantic place for couples.

"Nice place to chill out"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Apr 18, 2012
Great place to unwind and have a great week end. The lake is excellent. Many places to visit, but definitely nothing to do beyond 2 days.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Many places to visit like lake, croakers walk, bryant park, guna caves, etc. Was told Berijam lake is good, but we need to take forest officers approvals before we visit this place.

Activities & things to do: Nothing to add.

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Carry umbrella as we won't know when it will rain...
