Going by the literal meaning, Kodaikanal stands for The Gift of the Forests and is often referred to as the Princess of Hill Stations. A perfect retreat destination for people seeking some freshness away from the chores of the city life, Kodaikanal is the place to be if you are looking for serenity.


Located at an altitude of 6,998 ft, the meadows and grasslands cover the hills while the giant eucalyptus trees and the Shola forests flourish in the valleys below. There are some breathtaking waterfalls in this region, which will surely blow your mind and make you fall in love with the place.


Breezy, cool weather throughout the year, vast patches of lush greenery, a fun trekking

experience, wild bison idling amongst eucalyptus trees these are some of the things youd

associate with a trip to Kodaikanal in Tamil Nadu.


Crystal-clear water of its lakes and waterfalls reflects the images of the nearby greeneries.

Strolling through these blissful wood, plucking delicacies

like avocados and fresh apples is an enjoyable way to spend your time in Vattakanal. So book your spot with us and lets embrace the bliss of being amidst natures lap.

Kudremukh Trek (3rd Aug - 5th Aug)I have been planning for the Kudremukh Trek for a long time. But was very hesitant to do it on my own. There is a limited (50 person) entry for the trek to the Kudremukh and I was not sure about the entry, gates and entry free. Online portals dont have specifics of the details, and the information didnt seem updated. After doing some research, I came across Plan the Unplanned (PTU), and they seemed to be the most reliable. I heard great review from friends and colleagues, so I went ahead and booked Kudremukh Trek for the weekend of 3rd - 5th August. It was a wonderful trip, to say the least. The planning and execution were absolutely on point, and Plan the Unplanned (PTU) exceeded my expectations. Below are some highlights: Very good transportation facility (AC Bus) Stay was arranged at Bella Homestay. Good clean dorm room. Separate rooms for boys and girls. We were 11 guys staying in room. But it was still decently comfortable. Great food at the homestay. Aunty makes some amazing Idllis and Tomato rice :D Permits were taken care before reaching the entry point of the trek, avoiding last minute hassles. (Such a relief) It was relatively easy for experienced hikers but moderate for newbies. But definitely one of the most scenic treks with lots of greenery and gushing water streams on the way. And windows XP theme hills ;) The fellow trekkers were good. Very motivated and great sport. Last but not the least the Trek Leader (Adith, Megha, Deepika, Yash) were awesome. They are very engaging and responsible. Kudremukh trekkers were mostly in contact with Adith & Megha. And they did an awesome job of coordination and I highly recommend them. Will plan my next trip with Plan the Unplanned (PTU) soon. - by Tapash for Kudremukh Monsoon Trek | Plan The Unplanned organized by Plan The Unplanned .
