Theni Tourism & Travel Guide

Known as Cardamom City, Theni is a small, picturesque town in the south. An unlikely holiday destination; it is visited only by people who either know about it or the locals in Tamil Nadu. There are tons of places to see in this small town where major trading of cotton, grapes, chilli and textiles take place. Though most of the great places are located around town, there are a few places of interest within the town as well. Do visit the popular Vellappar Temple, which is located in Mavoothu village. Even if you aren't the spiritual kind, the idyllic village life will completely charm you and makes for fond memories. Another great place is Megamalai Wildlife Sanctuary, located a few kilometres away from the main city. The sanctuary is beautiful and a relief from the concrete jungles we are used to. You can also spend a night at one of the sky bungalows here; in fact you must try and spend a night here. The mornings marked by a chorus of melodious bird songs, will stay with you for a long time. You can also visit Suruli Falls and Kumbakkarai Falls, located a few kilometre from the city. There are a few places to stay in Theni, though you may not find too many options.

Kodaikanal Hills, 9 Km From Periyakulam, Theni
Kumbakarai was six kms from Periyakulam, so we decided to go by walk. We crossed nearly one and half kms, and the food we ate made us stop. Stopped a crossing share auto and asked him to drop in Kumbakarai falls. Meanwhile we have decided to reach Kodaikanal via Vellagavi (One can reach this village from Dolphin Nose point Kodaikanal. You have to trek down few Kms to reach here), climbing from kumbakarai falls. We reached the Falls entrance and everything was closed. One Akka came and told, just now a forest officer left from this pace, you have to take permission form forest ranger and for that we have to travel back 20 kms to Devanathapatti to get the permission. We were in a dilemma whether we need permission to climb the hill.The half an hour confusion
