The Blue Mountains of Kodaikanal and its charming sights!!

I have been to Kodaikanal many a time before. In fact a generation back, my family had their roots here.

Hence, Kodaikanal occupies a special place amongst my Western Ghats travel list.

I have visited this pretty hill station in almost all months of the year, but I find it most endearing when the skies are blue and the days are washed in bright sunshine.

Such sights seem to have a calming presence. The tall pine trees stand graceful and the sun just about manages to squeeze through their dense canopies.

Biting into a juicy orange carrot under these canopies acts a great relaxant for me.

My favourite way of exploring this hill town is on horse back. That way I get to trot about leisurely and am able to explore the extremely beautiful, yet not touristy places.

The views of the blue skies and the bluish white clouds on top of the Nilgiri Mountains makes this entire place so very special. The icing on the cake is provided by the dense green forests and its rich flora and fauna.

Having said the above, the view points and the tourist attractions of Kodaikanal are also amazing, but for the huge crowds, the loud noise levels and the litter trail that is left behind.
