Trip description

Going by the literal meaning, Kodaikanal stands for ‘The Gift of the Forests’ and is often referred to as the Princess of Hill Stations. A perfect retreat destination for people seeking some freshness away from the chores of the city life, Kodaikanal is the place to be if you are looking for serenity.
Located at an altitude of 6,998 ft, the meadows and grasslands cover the hills while the giant eucalyptus trees and the Shola forests flourish in the valleys below. There are some breathtaking waterfalls in this region, which will surely blow your mind and make you fall in love with the place.
Breezy, cool weather throughout the year, vast patches of lush greenery, a fun trekking
experience, wild bison idling amongst eucalyptus trees – these are some of the things you’d
associate with a trip to Kodaikanal in Tamil Nadu.
Crystal-clear water of its lakes and waterfalls reflects the images of the nearby greeneries.
Strolling through these blissful wood, plucking delicacies
like avocados and fresh apples is an enjoyable way to spend your time in Vattakanal. So book your spot with us and let’s embrace the bliss of being amidst nature’s lap.
