As my stay was right next to Coaker's Walk, i had the entire view from my suite/ room. So i would advice that visit Coaker's walk at different hours of the day for a completely new experience in every visit.

Entry ticket is very nominal. Entrance is opposite Bryant park. The walk inside is not well maintained and commercialized with shops along the walk. There are benches at intervals to sit and admire the view. We went on a misty, cloudy evening .... So didn't get much of a view. Will visit again next time only if the sky is... More

On our way to Kodaikanal lake, we stopped here before continuing our journey. For someone not from India it was truly a colorful site with local merchants selling their wares along the walk. A beautiful view of the valley along with a short walk to view it from different vantage points.

Coaker's walk is a fairly decent place to visit in Kodai. It is a km long walk which has valley on one side and hills on the other. There are a few shops alongside. Try to visit this place early in the morning by 6:30 to catch the sunrise.

Coakers walk is amongst one of the most popular sight-seeing location in Kodaikanal. It's is in the center of the town with hardly 10 minutes walking distance from the Bus Stand. The Coakers walk will give you pleasant view of the valley and you would cherish the breath taking view through the points on the walkway. A very well laid... More

Being an avid admirer of nature's beauty, I have never missed a day in Kodaikanal without visiting taking a stroll in Coaker's walk. You would experience a breath taking views and cool & nice breeze. Enjoy the walk during misty days.
