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 an altitude of 2100 meters above Sea level, 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.

We are gonna explore three gems of Kodaikanal on this trip along with few popular and beautiful places. One of them is very famous & known to all (a Lake), the other one is fairly unknown but extremely beautiful (another Lake), the third one is a total secret where we will Camp very close to (yet another lake)!

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