After leaving pillar rock garden my car drove the way towards dense pine forest. This place showcases the mesmerising beauty of nature which has been preserved to date and is considered as heritage of the town. The forest looked like straight ripped away from a Bollywood movie. The pine trees in abundance welcomed me in their world. As I went deeper and deeper into the nut brown forest, mother nature unfolded her hidden beauty one by one. The trees stood like pillars and almost covered the blue sky above. A broken chain of golden sun ray softly fused through and played a perfect kaleidoscope on the silver mist.
A preserved heritage and nature’s wonder, Pine Forest is one of the best places to see in Kodaikanal. In 1906, Mr. Bryant started the pine plantations in order to grow timber which resulted in this beautiful forest. The Pine Forest is surrounded by vegetations of mushrooms called magic mushrooms which are said to be hallucinogenic. With hundreds of majestic pine trees which has a rustic ambiance with dried cones and leaves, this place is perfect for photography. Afternoons can be the ideal time for visiting the forest. Avoid visiting the forest during the rainy season as it gets damp and muddy.Timings: 10 am – 6 pm
Go to Kodai and not see pine trees..simply impossible. The pine forest is well maintained and preserved. Spend some quality time here, walk around, sit, relax and enjoy the beauty of the nature.
One cannot help but marvel at nature’s magic when one enters the world of the majestic pine trees that stand tall and are vast spread. There is no entry fee for the Pine Forest. The brown tinge of the forest merges well with the soil. Camping is allowed after taking permission from the concerned authorities. The sad part is the crowd and the traffic. With so much rush, it becomes difficult to enjoy the quiet and calm of nature.
Pine forest was the next stop of our journey which was filled with monkeys hanging on the pine trees.
