    Must visit and enjoy the boating there - lot of places to spend time in and around the lake with eating outlets , home made choclate shops etc . One must take the cycle on rent and go around the lake it is a good experience . There are other recreational sports as weill with games for kids where one can spend time with family .

    It is a must visit place if you are in kodai . Naturally formed pillar shaped rocks looks amazing, good view of the valley and with the mist around adds to the beauty of the place. Entry fees is 5 rupee , try to visit the place before 10 AM for a better view and early in the day the place is not crowded .

    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

    From this point, you get the entire view of Kodaikanal city and the Kodaikanal Lake. There aren't any charges and there are a couple of shops just opposite to the point.

    It's a 150+ year old church dedicated to Lady Saleth. The church looks quite pretty with the blue color. It is situated on the hill and gives really good panaromic views of the city.

    History lovers can have a great time visiting the Shembaganur Museum of Natural History, one of the famous tourist attractions in Kodaikanal. Founded in late eighteenth century, the museum has good collection on biological, wild-life, botanical subjects. Other highlights of this wonderful place are the display of the growth of the human baby inside a womb alongside archaeological treasure and collection of coins.
    The artifacts belonging to the Palayiar tribes ( whose descendants continue to reside in the hill station ) are also on display.
    The taxidermy collection of over 500 species of wild insects, birds, animals is a major attraction of the museum.
    Overall, it is one of the must-go places
