Pillar Rocks, Kodaikanal

3.7
Jutting out from the surrounding forest, Pillar Rocks create an imposing natural focal point amid an already dramatic landscape. The three giant rock pillars, around 122 m (400 ft) in height, rise out of a thick surrounding forest. The main viewpoint from which to see the rocks can get pretty busy, but definitely wait your turn to see them unobstructed. At such a great height, clouds regularly cover the pillars, but when they break through, the effect is all the more memorable.

  • Whenever I visited this place I enjoyed the mist flow in the area maximum we can see the mist, sometimes when mist allow we can see the superb valley view. One water flow (kind of small falls) is there downwards to valley. We can spent time here minimum half an hour. Good place to see...
  • Fantastic view point. One of the view point not to be missed after Bericham forest view points. Has decent parking structure without fees 😜. View point has entry fee along with special fee for cameras. There is decent space for quick shopping. Better to avoid eateries here to retain health for subsequent generations places visit.
  • Splendid view of the nature. One place in Kodaikanal you can see Mist throughout the year. First time Mist viewers will enjoy a lot. During March to May the weather is cool, mostly dormant. If you want to enjoy the chillness best time will be from October to February.
  • Beautiful place... Really a feast for a lover of nature.. Photos can b taken by a man there.. On the spot he ll give it as a photograph or key chain.. Really great work he does... Really beautiful pictures taken by him in that beautiful place...
  • Beautiful place. Nature's gift to our mankind. Full of mist, mist lovers will get excellent view. Free parking for vehicles. Entry fee is there.
