The unique blend of hills, lakes, parks, pleasant climate throughout the year, Kodaikanal has it all. Kodaikanal,located in Palani Hills, is one of the prettiest hill stations in South India.

Nearest airports are Madurai and Coimbatore airport. Kodaikanal can be reached from other hill stations like Munnar and Ooty.
I traveled to Kodai from Munnar, it was a 5 hours long journey and it was filled with amazing sights of the rolling hills, lush green forests, birds and if you get lucky you might even spot few wild elephants near the elephant crossing zone.
Best time to visit Kodaikanal :
Kodai can be visited throughout the year. Kodaikanal has lovely summers but the ideal time to visit is in the winter months between October and March, this is when the weather is at its best.
Sightseeing in Kodaikanal :
Kodai Lake : A magnificent star-shaped lake that glitters like a jewel amidst the emerald green woods. This 24 hectare lake is skirted by 5 kms long road and is the focal point of Kodai. This was my personal favorite spot in Kodai, one can enjoy cycling, horse riding, boating in the lake or you can simply stroll around the lake and eat some munchies.
