Whenever we think of the state Tamil Nadu the first few things that comes to our mind are Temples expressing artistic and architectural brilliance, beautiful sea-beaches, a state of idli, dosa,sambar,vada and that of the Thalaiva-Rajnikanth. But someone who have focused on middle school Indian geography and have not forgotten just after writing the exams (unlike me) would know that it is the only state in Southern India sharing two mountain ranges both Eastern Ghats and Western Ghats. An eastward extension of the later is known as the Palani Hills on the upper side of which sits the "Princess of Hill Stations"- Kodaikanal. Yes, a state which is largely believed to have a dry weather and where a cooler is a must till the end of October also have in it a part where you have to use a blanket from the mid of September!
In order to reach Kodaikanal, there are bus services available from major South Indian cities. Else you can reach to Kodaikanal Road railway station or Dindigul and from there Tamil Nadu state buses are available to Kodaikanal. The Bus fare is around 80-90 rupees. But if you want a comfortable journey and enjoy the view on the way then pre-booking a cab can also be an option (just google the cab services) which costs around Rs 1600-2500 depending on the type of vehicle chosen and the pickup location. On the way stop at Silver Charade waterfalls.
