About the destination

A pretty little hill station and a slow-paced town, Kodaikanal is the perfect place to visit for those who seek solitude on their vacations. Kodaikanal was originally established in 1845 by British bureaucrats and American missionaries to serve as a refuge from the high temperatures and diseases of the plains down below. In the 20th century, when some elite Indians began relocating to this enchanting hill, it finally took the form of a hill station and turned into a place for vacation.

Things to do in Kodaikanal

When it comes to activities to undertake and places to visit in Kodaikanal, tourists generally find themselves spoilt for choice. With nature all around, there are several spectacular locations for sightseeing in Kodaikanal starting with the Kodaikanal Lake, a popular inclusion in all Kodaikanal tour and honeymoon packages. Built in 1863, it is an artificial lake that spreads over 60 acres of land. You will find a plethora of exciting recreational activities here to participate in, including pony rides, boat rides, and cycling. The 5-kilometer long path skirting the lake is a popular walking trail too. There is also a golf club that is located about 5 kilometers from the lake, which offers temporary memberships to tourists for using the golf course on an everyday basis.

    Besides the Kodaikanal Lake, the top places to cover when you take a trip to Kodaikanal include:

    Bryant Park

    Built by H. D. Bryant, a forest officer from Madurai, in 1908, it is a botanical garden that covers an area of 20.5 acres. The park has around 325 species of trees. It has a special section dedicated to flowers with about 740 varieties of roses alone. It is also home to a Bodhi tree and a eucalyptus tree.

    Coaker’s Walk

    A kilometer-long paved pedestrian path that runs along the edge of the steep slopes of the southern side of Kodaikanal, Coaker’s walk was constructed by Lt. Coaker in 1872. Taking this path on a clear day, you can view the Pambar River in the southeast, Dolphin’s Nose in the south and the towns of Madurai and Periyakulam too.

    Green Valley View

    Located close to the golf course, Green Valley View delivers a panoramic view of the plains, and the Vagai Dam, 1500 meters below to the south.

    Solar Observatory

    At a height of 7,687 feet, the Solar Observatory in Kodaikanal is the highest location here. Set up in 1899, this observatory is owned and managed by the Indian Institute of Astrophysics. There are public tours to the astronomical science museum on campus, organized by the facility. The observatory is open to the public each Friday for a few hours.

    Devil’s Kitchen

    Featured in the Tamil movie Gunaa, this is a cave with bat-infested chambers between the Pillar Rocks. Although interior portions of these caves are now prohibited for public visits, you can still see some sections here.

    In addition to sightseeing in Kodaikanal, as a part of the tour package, you can also indulge in shopping. The area is especially popular for its homemade chocolates, eucalyptus oil, plums, and pears. You can also shop for woolen clothes at the Tibetan refugee bazaar.
