Food, sight-seeing and shopping: There is nothing for shopping. Food is available only made to order in almost all hotels. As such there are only limited hotels for stay. Water falls, trekking and visiting some temples are the only sight seeing. Not much to explore in this hill station.

Activities & things to do: Nothing much to say.

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: From Bangalore reach Salem. Take Rasipuram road, ReacRasipuram town and near the temple take left which leads to Semmedu. Semmedu is the town in Kolli Hills. Drive carefully as there are 70 hairpin bends. And it is a two way traffic to and from the hills. Take warm clothes during winter as it gets cold after the evenings.

"A different Planet"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Sep 28, 2010
Hills but full of green layer...Once here you will not feel to return. Very less population (esp on weekdays I am sure you are a part of the 1000 people population on the hills) also on weekends, you can hardly see people. Too good to visit with friends, families etc.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Ensure that the hotel you stay here provides food as no hotels in public market (actually no market only, and this is the charm) many sight seeing options and the hotel guy will tell you all you need is love for nature and then its endless....

Activities & things to do: Waterfalls, couple of view points, temple, lake boating, trekking and above all just chill and relax between untouched mother nature.

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Bangalore - Krishnagiri - Salem - Rasipuram - Kollimalai.
Chennai - Krishnagiri - Salem - Rasipuram - Kollimalai
Must have a CAR to reach this place and visit the local sights. Carry gud amount of snacks and currency....
