Ooty/ Kodaikanal

Located 120 Km away from Madurai, Kodaikkanal is a beautiful hill station at an altitude of about 2133m on the southern tip of upper Palani hills in the Western Ghats.

A well-known feature and the one that attracts a lot of tourists is the blooming of the famous kurinji flower, which blooms once in 12 years.

Kodai's most enchanting sights include the star shaped lake , spread over an area of 24 hectares where you can take up fishing and boating.

One of the world's oldest solar observatories is situated in Kodai, built in 1899.

If you love exotic flowers, don't miss the Orchidorium at the Sacred Heart College where about 300 species of orchids bloom.

You can take long walks on special, lovely trails down Coaker's walk and Priest's walk. You can get the best views of Kodai from the Pillar Rocks and the Green Valley View.

Bear Shola falls, Silver Cascade, Fairy Falls and Glen Falls are very popular with picnickers. And those with a religious bent of mind should pay a visit to The Kurinji Andavar Temple that's 3.2 Km away from town, and is dedicated to Lord Subramanya.

Trekking enthusiasts must check out Perumal Peak.
