... with no road access, just a walking path 1.5hours downhill from Dolphins Nose. Amazingly, when a villager needs urgent medical attention, their fellow villagers carry them all the way up to Kodaikanal. All of this made us eager to go.

We spent time at a place called Cloud Cafe where we met a man who used to run one of the cafeterias here at Pondicherry university.
