In My City: Kodaikanal

The unique blend of hills covered with Shola plantation & the fragrance of Eucalyptus all around is one of the untold reasons that it’s called as “The Gift of the Forest”. Be it the presence of chilled out climate throughout the year (provided you are staying somewhere close to the lake), delicious chocolates or the Magical fruit, Kodai has it all..!!

  • Are you a nature enthusiast?
  • Do you wish to explore the city on a cycle?
  • Do you love to just click pictures :)
  • If you love your life and chocolates have a huge role to play in it 

What are you waiting for ?? Join the trail
Bangalore Mountaineering Club aka. BMC provides a perfect package on this one.

Life on a bicycle:

Being part of the gen-next, we are so much accustomed to the comfort of bikes or cars.

” We are so much addicted to the Pulsars and Activas that we have forgotten how we started. Almost all of us started with bicycles before joining the bandwagon.“

As soon as we got to know that we will be riding our bicycles, our eyes lit up in joy!!

Imagine : There is a star-shaped lake covered with mist and lilies blooming all around. Now picture yourself riding a bicycle around the 5 kilometer stretch of the entire lake.
Now what if I tell you that the above is not some fantasy but such a place really exists!!
And after riding for a while when you feel a bit tired, just stop for some time and energize yourself with ‘full of spices’ street food!

We tried this ‘Bhel’ ie). a mixture comprising of roasted peanuts, lemon, and everything that you can possibly see in the above picture.

” Be ready for that special surprise of sourness. Thanks to addition of raw mangoes and pineapples”
