Mesmerising view if not blocked by fog and mist Clouds come and go like traffic at Kodaikanal. It all depends on your luck. When we arrived at 3 PM, it was a nice view but soon within seconds whole view was blocked. We waited 15 mins , but no luck for 2nd glance due to fog & Mist. Better try... More

The view from here is awesome. Taking pictures at this point gives a feeling as if you are standing on clouds. Make sure to take exit from behind this place as the entry point n other direction gets closed by 5 or something. No one will be available to open it and you will have to travel the entire way...

Pillar Rocks is a must see place. Though it can be crowded on holidays, it affords great views. And with clouds wafting in, the scenes keep changing all the time.

If you are taking a mini van tour, they wont stop here, there is no paring area for them. We could just spend a few minutes. With clear weather, the view can be amazing, try booking a cab ride while taking valley view and then you will be able to spend more time in the park area.
