Getting to Kodaikanal
'Kodaikanal', meaning a canopy of blue, is Tamil Nadus favorite hill station. Chirping birds, calm waterfalls, fresh air and the bountiful aromas of the nearby plantations greet you as you approach this delightful destination. The town itself is nothing compared to the mesmerizing view to the top. A number of waterfalls and monkeys form the welcoming committee, and the town itself offers joys in the little things. Horse and cycle rides, or a simple walk around the quiet lake.

Why Visit ?
Sacred Heart Natural Science Museum: A popular visiting spot for school trips, this museum has eerie displays of human embryos, bottled snakes, stuffed animal carcasses giant moths and other things. 

Pillar Rocks: A bit away from the town proper, Pillar rocks is a set of three column rocks, seemingly standing without any support from nearby geography. The viewpoint may get crowded. Be sure to visit when the day isn't shrouded in fog! 

Green Valley View: A brilliant view of the plains below and of the Vaigai Dam, this viewpoint has a sheer drop of 1500 meters.
Trek to Dolphins nose: A long and gentle trek to the tip, where a flat rock stretches out above a 6600 meter abyss. The route up to the tip is speckled with refreshment vendors, where you can take a breather. 

Boating:The Kodai boating club offers boating for 2 and 4 people, with rates varying based on season. Boating is not allowed if it's too foggy or it has been raining, but a boat ride on the serene lake transports you to a silent sphere of tranquility. 

Cycling:A horse ride along aquarter or half the lake is just right to make those little ones laugh. Hire a cycle, time based, and take it for a ride around the lake. Snack vendors are located every few hundred meters, ensuring that no one goes hungry!
Abys Caf'ffer; Located down the road from Seven Road Junction, Abys Caf'ffers a casual dining atmosphere and friendly service. The food here is made fresh and hot, to be enjoyed in the cool kodai climate. Play a table game or two while you wait, or chat with the pleasant lady in charge.

The Carlton: For those with a more expensive taste, The Carlton has an expansive lawn where you can enjoy the view of the lake and dine in style.

Lakeside: A number of snacks like mirchi vada and bhajji, and lemon, ginger and masala teas are available around the lake. Also snack on corn, cotton candy and peanuts as you stroll!
Around the Bus stop: A number of shops sell wood
and glass based souvenirs around the Kodai bus stop. Shawls, bells, key chains
and other little trinkets are sold in abundance here.

Lakeside: Every possible piece of warmclothing one could need can be found around the lake. Gloves, hats, sweaters,socks, you name it! This aside, little shops here also sell toy guns and othergames for children. Fruits are also sold around the lake, oranges and carrotshere are especially flavorsome!

Cheese and chocolate: Buy a variety of flavored cheeses from a tiny little shop called the Cheese Factory. Right from Garlic Mozzarella to Pepper Cheddar, the options will dazzle any cheese enthusiast. Also available here are coffee bean chocolates and chocolate coated biscuits!
Languages spoken: Tamil, English

Currency: Indian Rupee

Climate: Pleasant throughout the year, but exceedingly cold and damp between October and March. Best time to visit is during the summer, but the little hill station may get overly crowded at this time.

Connectivity: Mobile connectivity is decent in the town proper, but very few towers provide service in the hills nearby. 

Cultural habits: The people of Kodai are generally friendly and helpful. Kodaikanal International School enables cultural diversity in this happy hill station.

Trivia: The Kurinji shrub has bloomed earlier than normal, this time in 2014.
