   Home » Hill Station Holidays » Kodaikanal


Kodaikanal is one of the most popular & charming hill stations in India due to its wooded slopes, mighty rocks, enhancing waterfalls and a beautiful lake. The unique flowering plant 'Kurunji'(Strobilanthus Kunthanus) that last bloom in 1992, is the nature's gift to Kodaikanal. The slopes of the hill are covered by the purple carpet during it's season.

Kodai is the only hill-station in India which was set-up by the Americans, though the Britishers soon joined. American missionaries established a school for European children here in the mid-1840s, the legacy of which is the Kodaikanal International School which is one of the most prestigious schools in the country.

Kodai or Kodaikanal is on the southern crest of the Palani hills, about 120 km from Madurai, at an altitude of 2100 mt. It is an idyllic getaway for regular tourists, trekker and honeymooners. Blessed with nature's breath-taking beauty, the star-shaped lake dominates this sleepy hill-station.
