... stone cottage with a gorgeous, immaculately kept garden overlooking the valley. We arrived on a sunny day and were taken aback by the views of the valley and the mountains surrounding us. Our room was nice enough but a bit scruffy around the edges given the price. There was no heating and everything felt damp, but we were very pleased that we had dragged our sleeping bags all the way around South India as we ended up using them under the duvet that we shared.
... photos. They were funny at the time....We didn't end up visiting top station as we had booked a trek the next day which took us up higher so instead played hide and seek in the tea plantations, before watching a a stunning sunset behind the mountain. R.M. drove us back to town, via a communist rally which was setting up for the weekend. A little surreal
Once wrapped up (the temperature dropped quite quickly after sunset) ...
We had arrived into Kochi (pronounced Coach-e) yesterday which is in the province of Kerela (pronounced Care-uh-la). Kochi is a very industrial town which is full of pollution, traffic and dust. Kochi is used mostly as a gateway for travellers to get to other parts of Kerela.
We woke early around 6:00 am to be ready for the drive to Munnar. The drive was supposed to be about 4 hours and none of really knew what we had in store for us for the drive to ...
... demoralised by being freezing cold, soaked, covered in filth splashed up from the road. (yes – human faeces – SO grim).

TravelPod Member ReviewsHill Country Resorts Kodaikanal
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!!
Please read my Blog entry on my Kodai Stay.
