After a long train journey we landed at Coimbatore on 14th feb 10:20 am and we are completely exhausted so we wanted to chill out for some time and came out of station in search of a bar to have some booze and planned to book a taxi meannwhile njoyin our drinks till Kodaikanal which is 160 km from Coimbatore.
We found a local bar nearby station who is offering a alcohol at bar prices and free side dishes( veg and non veg included) after spending time there we lost our hunger and tried to book taxi but they are not ready to drop until and unless we pay by cash we don't have at that moment.
So we asked localities advise on how to reach Kodaikanal.
From Coimbatore there is a place called Palani and public transport is available for every 30 min to reach that place and from there we can find public transport or a taxi.
So we started in a public transport from Coimbatore to Palani which is 4 hours journey. We reached Palani at evening 5:30 pm and planned to reach Kodaikanal again by public transport and from Palani the scenery was amazing, vast areas covered with coconut farms and green lushes.
From Palani to Kodaikanal there was a 60- 65 km Ghat road with breathtaking view points and it takes around 3 hours to reach Kodaikanal.
And finally at night 9:00 pm we reached Princess of hill station and completed our one and half day journey.
After reaching Kodaikanal bus stop localities asked us if we need any accomodation and helped us to find a decent plan at 1000 bucks for three people for one day.
He arranged a vehicle for us to drop till hotel from bustop and enquied about our visit and informed us there are other two people who came for same party and staying in the hotel.
We went to residency, freshned up and realised that temperatures there is very low and searched for those two people who came for party and finally met them and found that we had some very close mutual friends.
We sat on terrace gazing stars and had a little conversation and dispersed to get some sleep because we are gonna attend a music festival for three days and reserving energy is must.
We went to room ordered food at hotel and ate and went to sleep.
We don't know the place Kodaikanal properly because it was night and we are waiting to see view from hotel.
All we know is that place is freakin cold and we need to survive there for more 4 days.
