Following which we went to a site known as the “Pillar Rocks”.  These are three giant rock pillars which stand at a height of 122 meters, at the edge of a cliff. The posters of the Pillar Rocks dot the town and are featured in almost every postcard collection. However when we with all our excitement visited the place, it was extremely foggy and we weren’t able to catch even the slightest glimpse of them.

A bit heartbroken, we then proceeded towards the famous pine forest of Kodaikanal. This was a place where some of our most memorable Bollywood movie scenes were shot. We also tried enacting some of those scenes just to make up for an even more memorable photo.

The last place we visited was the unruffled Kodaikanal Lake. High up in the mountains, the beautiful lake seems like it was pulled out of a fairytale. We saw exotic birds chirping by its banks, misty fog blowing across the woods adjacent to it and a beautiful cobalt blue color of the lake that made it almost look like something from an impressionist painting. We sat in a pedal boat that was quite difficult to maneuver and with much difficulty trolled around the lake. The beautiful lake at the same time continued inviting us to explore each of its corners, dimly reflecting the sun’s rays all the while.


Kodaikanal is also referred to as the “Princess of Hill Stations” – well I must say after touring the whole town it lives up to its name.  Having visited so many hill stations in the past; the serenity of Kodaikanal is hard to match. As I am writing this article, the fable like town brings back memories that make me want to pack my bags and set off for an early Holiday.
