Anju Veedu Falls :
This one located between a dense forest is one of the less corwded waterfall that is suitable for trekking. If you are looking for camping in Kodaikanal then the tents and campsite near this falls are the best campsite you’d come across. You can either admire the waterfall from the top by just walking for 10 minutes or in-case if you’re looking to have a shower then you need to trek down the falls to reach the foot of the falls.
Pillar Rock :
As the name implies the rock stands like a pillar which is nested between the clouds leaving the tourist with an amazing impression on it. There are very few places like this which keeps you excited because there are other few places in Kodaikanal local tour packages that covers Guna caves, Moyer point and the upcoming spot pine forest.
Pine Forest :
Pine forest is just a place that would find in a Hollywood film where the chasing scenes happen in a horror movie. This place is crowded but worth it. Take a horse ride in the pine forest and roam the place like a cowboy.
Coakers Walk :
This is one of the beautiful location in the Kodaikanal which is preferred especially by couples because it sets the romantic mood while walking on the footpath holding hands together. There’s a binocular available inside to have a close up look of the city. If you’re lucky you can witness the Kurinji flower which blossom once in 12 years here.
Places to visit in kodaikanal in 2 Days
If you’re planning to spend more than 2 days in Kodaikanal and visit the places then these are the best locations that you must no miss in Kodai.
Vattakanal is nested inside a protected forest which has separate check posts to prevent illegal drug abuse here. Wait, what? Yes you heard it right. Vattakanal is famous for “Shrooms” which is not authorized legally in Kodaikanal. This place is also called as mini Israel because there are many Israel tourists flock here during the months of October – January to enjoy the climate and stay.
There are many places to camp, trek and stay in Vattakanal which has to be booked in Advance. Contact us if you’re looking to book one.
Other places to visit from Vattakanal is Echo rock and Dolphin nose by trekking through narrow rocks. Don’t miss to try the Israel food items in Altaf’s cafe. Avoid cars during weekend as there’s very less parking spaces.
Mannavanur is a calm place for a family picnic. There’s a lake in this place which makes Mannavanur popular among adventure backpackers because they can come here and camp in the private camping sites. Not only that, tourists can try kayaking and horse ride inside the park.
Reaching mannavanur is easy but the roads are little rough so I’d suggest booking kodaikanal car rentals for a safe trip. Towards the place you’ll find many small shops that sells Eucalyptus oil which are made over there. They will show you the procedure if you’re really interested in it.
You’ll find few meat shops enroute Mannavanur and make sure to try them because you’d not find many restaurants there.
