Kodaikanal Recent Trip | My Experience In Kodaikanal

Kodaikanal is called as the princess of hill stations. It receives visitors from various parts of India and also from foreign countries. You will feel the weather as soon as you start your journey uphill from Vathalagundu/Batlagundu. The mind blowing hills, tress, plantations, small villages, small streams, falls will make your travel mesmerized. The chill weather is worth mentioning.

 

As I wanted to escape from my hectic life for a while, I considered various places before leaving. Then I zeroed in on Kodaikanal and I was glad that I did it. I went to Kodaikanal with two of my friends. Since I had already visited this place before, my friends were so excited as they were purely based on hot Chennai from their childhood. They loved it. I have shared some of the beautiful pictures of Kodaikanal below.

This is one of the uncleared mystery revolves around this place. This beautiful forest is located on the way to Berijam Lake/Reservoir. The route to Berijam is very restricted by government authorities. You need to get proper entry permit to access this place and off course it has some minimal charges below 1000 INR. I went to this place with the help of a local travel agency. You should experience this awesome scenic route. Beware of monkeys and Bison (Indigenous to Kodaikanal).

  • Botanical Garden Kodaikanal

You can see a many kinds of flowers in this garden. It is one of the well maintained and huge botanical garden in India. And during tourist season it will be crowded very much. But yet you can admire this beautiful and huge garden.

  • Berijam Lake – Road to Berijam

Berijam lake is one of the most protected lake. You can see forest authorities and police everywhere. You are not allowed to consume alcohol or to smoke inside this restricted area. Please don’t try to do. Just enjoy the beauty of mother nature.

People are not allowed to bath or to enter inside the lake. Since it is slippery and there are leaches every where. So be careful when you try to sit on the grass(I would say never sit).
