Most relaxed, Splendid weather, comfortable accommodation. Escape from the horrid routine. Excellent sites to visit and enjoy viz. Lake, Boat and Rowing Club, Coakers Walk, Green Vally View, Spices, Pain Oils, Home Made Chocolate Shops, Fruits and Vebgetable Shops, Bryant Park, Chettiar Park, Horse riding, Cycle ride and walking around the lake, Silver Cascade Falls, Pine Forest, Pillar Rocks, Berijam Lake and Mannavar Lake are very important.

"Good place"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
Good place for 2 days trip.

Kodaikanal lake - boating and cycling are available. Its awesome to ride cycle on a greenish road with chat items. Awesome place to spend with your beloved one.

coakers walk - 7 to 8 mins walk. Nice view points like hills, farms. Ready photos are available to make it more memorable.

shooting point - Must seen pace. Many songs were shooted here. Good place to take photos to get uploaded in social media.

Guna cave - A Tamil movie "Guna" acted by Maestro Kamal Haasan was shot here.

Chettiar park - Well maintained. it's better than Bryant's park in both cost wise and scenery wise.

kurinji aandavar temple - The great lord Murugan temple in Kodaikanal walkable distance from Chettiar park. Pls visit there and make your mind place.

vatakanal falls - another fine place to spend with your family. But Check with local people for water availability before going there. But sometimes mist will cover the view points and it's a great disappointment.

"Perfect Destination for nature lovers"

  • 4.5/7
  • Posted Feb 4, 2018
The family has visited during off season. Hill area had tolerable cold. During our site visits, due to heavy fog, we could not see valley's, landscape sceneray etc .. Kodai lake, Cloakers Walk is good. Parks are not maintained well. There was no greeery nor flowers in the park. Totally waster of entry fees. There is ample scope for developing greenary in and around Munnavar lake to make it really Switzerland. However, we could not see greenery. Local authorities are charging entry fees at every distination but no efforts seems to have put in to maintain the tourist places worth enjoying. Those who have Jonell sickness will have difficult time to travel 56 kms of Ghat section. Totally, Kodaikanal is worth visiting at least one in a life.

"This is the perfect place for Southern puples, who are always living in hot weather."

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Jan 15, 2018
1. This the best place for visitor who can not visit to Kashimir/Shimla. The weather are too good as comparative of all southern location .. Best season to holiday are Mar- May. It is better to take own carried car from Maduri.
2. Kodaikanal Lake, view points, forest area, springs and no's of place you like to visit.
3. We take only Dahi Rice and Dal Fry in one good vegetarian hotel, which is an average. We purchase Koko choke-let and pain killer oil by locally maid. Which are too good.
4. As per my advice, travel by car from Maduri. Please check your hotel review always. Because hotel service are too bed for online Booker.

"Stunning gem!"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Jan 12, 2018
A comparatively less commercialized hill station with a heavy colonial hang over in the southern state of Tamil Nadu. Great weather throughout the year and stunning viewpoints. Don't miss the beautiful waterfalls that surround the beautiful town. Shop for Kodai cheese, spices and honey.
