Desperately seeking escape from torturous heat of Southern Plains, Americans and Britishers were relieved after going through the reports of Lt. B.S. Ward. He was the first European to visit Kodaikanal in the year 1821. Kodaikanal is one of the beautiful hill stations in India, with its unique rows and rows of silky pine trees sloping down to clear, cold streams, spectacular views which suddenly disappear in foamy mist, people bundled up in sweaters and overcoats this is certainly not everyone's mental image of India.

Located amidst the folds of the verdant Pali hills, Kodaikanal acts in a way as a cold chilled glass of water does to a thirsty fellow in a hot summer day. The magical effect of this serene hill station leaves everyone mesmerized. Wooded slopes, mighty rocks, enhancing waterfalls and a beautiful lake, all add to the charm of this hill station.

The breathtaking views of morning mist over mountains rising high in the sky like clouds of smoke and glittering waterfalls are the impressions that last forever. Truly, it is an ideal place to spend your holidays, as there will be sheer pleasure!
