Tour of Kodaikanal

from 12,000.00

3D / 3N

Depending on which root/route you take, the etymology of the word Kodaikanal can have any of these meanings: “a place to see in summer”, “the summer forest”, “the forest of creepers” or “the gift of the forest”. On this tour, Kodaikanal will mean all of these things and so much more.

This ride up Kodaikanal is a difficult one, through the back roads where few, if any, have ever ridden.  The routes that we’ve carefully charted out for the three days will give you breathtaking views of hilly landscapes, thick tropical forests, valleys and many lakes and dams.

All about Tour of Kodaikanal.

This ride up Kodaikanal is a difficult one, through the back roads where few, if any, have ever ridden. As you leave the plains, the climb first passes shrub forests, which get progressively denser as you gain altitude. The routes that we’ve carefully charted out for the three days will give you breathtaking views of hilly landscapes, thick tropical forests, valleys and many lakes and dams.

On the last day we will be riding through the forests between Kodaikanal and Munnar, a route that’s not used by motorized vehicles, only frequented by village folk plying their local trade.
