    Nice place to visit, great views of entire valley and mountain. A must visit place. The walk is long and hence may not be suitable for all.

    At 32 km from Kodai through dense forest, lovely driving experience. Scenic lake not fully developed but having few adventures like tub boat, zip line, horse riding etc. Ensure to carry food as there is not good place.

    The lake is situated near Bus Stand and one of the main tourist attractions of Kodaikanal. Boating is available at the lake and cycles are available for renting. I would recommend cycling around the lake. It costs 50 rupees for half an hour for cycling.

    Beautiful view,silent place & forest. Awesome views and this is in the middle of forest.
    This lake is better than Kodaikanal lake.The lake is a cool place to chill, It is kid friendly.But You need to get permission from forest department.

    Dolphin's Nose is a view point situated in Vattakanal which is couple of kms from main city. It's a 25 min moderate trek. You get to witness waterfall, pine forest during the small trek. There are a couple of shops which serves snacks, Maggi along the way. Make sure to relax at one of those places and enjoy the views and weather. The trail is quite uneven and might be a little slippery. So please wear proper shoes. While coming back, don't forget to have a meal at Altaf's Cafe

    Pillar Rocks is a view point from where you see two rock pillars but I could not spot it because of fog. There is a small waterfall which can also be spotted from here. Entry Charges are 5 rupees.

    This is famous tourist spot in kodaikanal where maniratnam movee Guna starring Kamalhassan had been shot and hence got the name as Guna cave.Earlier they used to allow the people to watch cave view from far distance.Now they closed it due safety reasons and we can have the nice mountain view covered with mist.There are some wild woods which feels like tangled cobras.We need pay 10rs as entry fees to enter the place

    One of the best sight seeing in kodaikanal on the way to berijam lake. But the roads are blocked by forest department due to corona restrictions. Cost is about 250 per person

    The temple is located in a calm and nice valley. You can get a variety of garlic especially the medicinal garlic which has only one garlic instead of a bunch. You also get the partially dehydrated garlic that could be stored over a year without changes in taste and color.
