The Kodai Hill country resort has a stunning view and I could see the beautiful hillside from my window. The service at the resort needs to improve. The water, which came in the pipe, was brownish in color at many times and the hot water geyser seldom works. The stunning view and atmosphere makes up for the shortcomings in service. At the end of my stay I was asked to fill out a feedback form. As I was in a hurry, I promised to mail it in to them, I was surprised when the guy at the desk told me to just sign the feedback form and give it to him!!

One of the main viewpoints is a place called (for obvious reasons) Dolphins Nose, situated a short walk down from Vattakanal village. We had previously ...

... view, stopping off at a couple of waterfalls (seen more water coming out of hotel showers in the UK) and eating some good food.
The last part was the the bus ride back. Thinking we had gone through the worse on the way up we weren't prepared for the journey back. In total 2 out of the now 4 of us passed out and needed watering back to health plus 3 of the locals spent the majority of the time being sick.....nice.
... appear to enjoy their wallowing in the shallow river which, incidentally, was shared by a number of locals at their morning ablutions.
2. The waterfall. There were two waterfall stops and they were ok - as waterfalls go, but the five of us on our trip spent far longer trying to get decent snaps of he monkeys that were gathered in the trees in the hope - and certainty - of getting some titbits from the passers-by.
3. The dam. What a pathetic specimen! I ...
... Elephants are seen as being able to move anything out of their way. Thus, Ganesh is the remover of life’s obstacles. It’s a representation of God’s ability to help man overcome adversity.) We would’ve followed the crowd had it not proved so overwhelmingly populous and alive. Men were dancing in a form that can only be described as thrusting their hips into each other. Many people were drunk, though I don’t think it was the majority, and we all decided ...
