Kodaikanal. Sure you have heard this name before!
It’s one of the best hill stations you will ever come across in southern India with its altitude of 2100 meters above Sea level, very cold weather & thick forest cover throughout the year. It’s a very famous honeymoon destination too!

But we at Muddie Trails, will take you on an amazing voyage to the offbeat & never before seen side of this pristine hill station.

Presenting you three great lakes of Kodaikanal. One of them is very famous & known to all, the other one is unknown but extremely beautiful, the third one is the best-kept secret of Kodaikanal where we will head for a fantastic trek!

It’s time you #getmuddie on The Princess Of Hills – Kodaikanal!
