Discover Kodaikanal India

Kodaikanal (or Kodai), is a swanky holiday resort for the rich and famous, and is renowned for its international school. This resort, which lies in the heart of the forests on the Palani mountains some 75 mi east of Madurai, hosts very 'British' private clubs, golf courses and tennis courts. The region boasts many possibilities when it comes to excursions, whether by bicycle, boat (on a lake), or on foot (there are paths for hikers of all abilities). Visit the observatory, which is perched at the highest point. You can also wander around the plant and wildlife museum in Sacred Heart college in the district of Shenbaganur. The orchidarium here is home to 200 orchid species. 5 mi away are the impressive Silver Falls. 14 mi further on, you can admire the Dolmen's Circle, a prehistoric site with over 100 dolmens dating back to the 2nd Century. Climb to the summit of the Palani mountains, whose Perumal Peak reaches an altitude of 8,003 ft.
