Kodaikanal is perfect for a getaway from the moribund and busy life of cities. Tucked away in southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu, this hill station is a must visit for all. It's a popular destination for honeymooning couples but it can be as much fun to visit with your friends/family. Kodaikanal offers you a variety of places to visit and EACH one is unique. This is what makes it a VERY special place to visit.
Here's how we went about our trip from Chennai.
The State Transport Authority of Tamil Nadu has direct buses plying between Chennai and Kodaikanal. The buses are fairly comfortable with semi-sleeper seats and cost roughly Rs. 400 per journey. If one cannot find a direct bus, then one has to go via Madurai.
So a to and fro journey from Chennai costs just Rs. 800/-
