Where to stay in Kodaikanal

Unsurprisingly, the most upmarket accommodations in Kodaikanal sit by the lake. Offering extensive views of the central water features and the hills rolling off into the horizon, the rooms in such establishments usually come with a nice set of amenities including onsite spas, restaurants, and pools. Shoestring travelers that want a central location can opt for simple hotels in the town center to the east, while those wanting to get out of town altogether will find a few scattered hotels along the main roads, as well as rental bungalows in secluded spots.

  • Very good cave as it has geen trees forest. To reach there, old and green tree forest has to be passed. Nothing much there to see.  more »
  • The massive tree cluster with large weaving-web of entangling roots and the deep long caves .. makes one marvel at nature and the mystic of mythology..  more »

  • The actual cave is closed off to the general public. You will get to see a few areas which will jog your memory of the movie Guna. I visited today after close to 20 years & the place has changed drastically. It was a hole in the wall kind of place which has been commercialized ( acceptable). Enough parking for an army of visitors (on weekends, the parking stretches for a few hundred meters). There is a steep & long climb just to reach the cave levels. Please do not attempt this with unnecessary baggage or babies. No high heels(sorry ladies) or loafers(sorry guys). The final approach to the view points is after climbing over iron bars & sharp cut stones.There are paid restrooms available for both sexes. Entry fees is Rupees 10 per adult & Rupees 5 per kid above the age of 5.The lookout tower is a great addition, but do not count on spending more than 2 minutes on it. If your looking for the perfect selfie or group picture, be prepared to ask tourists to move out of the way. The best time to visit is before 9AM( you have plenty of time to enjoy the surroundings).
  • Awesome place.....the area is much more interesting due to presence of cobwebs like roots of trees which nearby surround the area. I liked this place for its position and the thrilling surrounding. The Watchtower is nicely located...mist is also a factor here..otherwise picturesque views are available....
  • Good 10min scienic walk takes you to a wooded place.. The place is a bit of letdown.. There is a bit of nostalgia if you have seen Guna movie.. The view point is average.. You get to see the caves only from the top.. Overall the walk to the destination is much better than the destination
  • First off, the access to caves is CLOSED. Having that cleared, you can have a top-view of the caves and if you're memory serves well, you can relate certain spots with the movie, Guna (hence, the name). What's more interesting is the mesh like roots exposed by the view point which serves as a good spot to take group photographs.
  • Nice tourist spot.. even the cave was awesome. But closed permanently now due to safety issues. A must visit place
