Kodaikanal Tours and Travels
Kodaikanal, located in the Pali Hills, situated on the western side of south India at an elevation of 2133 metres (7,000 ft), is one of the most popular hill stations in all of India. With its forests, mighty rock formations, enchanting waterfalls and a beautiful lake, Kodaikanal Lake, it is no wonder. There is no Kodaikanal without a view of the vast lake. Kodaikanal Lake is a splendid man-made lake, spread out in a star shape and 24.45 kilometres square it is a main attraction, set among the greenery it is a photographers dream and makes for great shots from all angles. There is also a local boat club which hosts races throughout the year and also pleasure cruises. Due to drought like conditions and the excessive planting of Eucalyptus trees that draw much more moisture than other plant species, soil erosion and the destruction of local plant species the lake has dropped from around 60 feet in depth to now around 10 to 12 feet in depth.Read More
