Day 1

Kodaikanal is not called the princess of hill stations for nothing. The atmosphere, the vibe, the magic in the air; all together causes you to forget your worries and to get lost in the momentary bliss.

Travel to Kodai in an overnight bus from Banglore/Cochin. Get down in the town and book a jeep to Karuna farm. If you are driving, turn left at Shempakannur (after Silver cascade waterfalls) and head to Prakashapuram.
