Where to stay in Kodaikānāl

About Kodaikānāl

Encircled by misty mountains forested in evergreen trees, Kodaikanal is a truly picturesque hill station home to dramatic outlooks, cascading waterfalls and a tranquil lake. Kodaikanal also treats you to serene walking trails, engaging museums and a magnificent Hindu temple.

Things to do

Kodaikanal is paradise for nature lovers, particularly around the expansive Kodaikanal Lake, which is best explored on a pedal boat or rowboat. The lake also hosts regular flower shows during summer. Immerse yourself in nature’s pure tranquillity at Silver Cascade Falls, where you can see monkeys and picnic beside the cascading water.

Adventurous travellers can explore the Guna Caves system, which was discovered in the 1800s and is surrounded by dense forest and native wildlife. The nearby Pillar Rocks Viewpoint is a popular spot for soaking up views of distant mountains and unique pillar-shaped rock formations. If you prefer something more laid-back, relax in the lakeside Bryant Park, which has cycling and walking paths.

Learn about the region’s rich natural history at the Sacred Heart College Museum, where you can see an assortment of taxidermy animals and bones. Afterwards, duck into the Wax Museum to see realistic wax figures of famous international and Indian celebrities.

The town’s centre is a dining hub filled with cafes and family-run restaurants, including Tava Vegetarian Restaurant and The Royal Tibet. After you’ve had your fill, check out the sacred Kurinji Andavar Temple, a circa-1936 Hindu temple surrounded by the picturesque Kurinji flowers. Visit Chettiar Park on your way back to enjoy the landscaped gardens and children’s playground.

Getting around

Kodaikanal is about 135 kilometres from Madurai International Airport and 80 kilometres from the Kodaikanal Road train station. You can walk or rent bicycles to get around parts of town, while the local taxis are best for accessing the surrounding attractions.
