One of the few rare places with Eucalyptus trees, come to this "Princess of Hills" to soak yourselves in the green, fresh and picturesque environs. Let this city of Southern India charm you with its view of lofty mountains, dainty valleys and awe-inspiring waterfalls.
As you wind up the road towards Kodaikanal, one of the most popular hill stations in the country, your expectations will soar. This is easily one of the most scenic mountain drives in the country. Kodaikanal, which literally means "The Gift of the Forest", will offer its scenic landscapes and enthralling waterfalls to its visitors as gifts. 

One of most picturesque hill stations in Tamil Nadu, Kodaikanal is a popular honeymoon destination, owing to its cool weather and breathtaking views. Escape the madness of the city and reach out and touch the clouds. Take a boat ride and explore the Christian culture of the place with the many beautiful churches. If you're lucky, you might even spot kurinji - the flowers that blossom only once in 12 years. 

Remember the song Pehla Nasha from young cult blockbuster Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar? Yes, it was shot in the pine forests of Kodaikanal. In fact, the movie starts with a panoramic view of Kodaikanal. So if you are visiting the place, you know what you can expect in terms of charm and beauty.


Once you enter Kodaikanal town, however, you will see a different picture The starfish-shaped lake is beautiful but the town centre is overrun with block-like buildings and there is an alarming amount of construction going on. Hotels and restaurants vie for attention. The impressive Kodaikanal International School dominates the main square. The pleasures of slowness are still to be found in Kodai, in nooks and corners, down secluded paths, in unexpected places. Veer off the usual sightseeing tracks, shirk the guides, go solo when you can, and take your time about it. Kodai is a place to let your most adventurous side loose — or your laziest. Off the beaten path and freed from the frenetic guided tours, Kodai yields up its gifts like a shy but certain lover. And the gifts are well worth it.
