There is a nominal entry fee of Rs 2. We had to wait for 30 minutes as the place was completely covered with clouds. The sun came up and the clouds started moving. Then suddenly 3 huge gigantic rocks emerged from the thick cloud that had enveloped them. The rocks looked exactly like Pillars and the view was amazing.

The pillar rocks were a nice place to visit. Moreover we saw there a regional wild cow. If you were lucky you may also got a chance to see it.

You're lucky if it is not covered with mist and you actually see the gigantic rocks rising from nowhere. What makes the sight more wonderful is that 45 degrees to the left is a valley - vast and serene.

One of best place in Kodai. Stunning views on Mountains and if weather is perfect you will find the rocks exactly like Pillars. Must visit when anyone travel to Kodaikanal.

Due to the Kodai mist and fog, it's virtually impossible to see the rocks. We were lucky to catch a glimpse of it for a few seconds before the fog completely engulfed the structure. It is an absolutely heavenly sight rising amongst the clouds. You could also relax at the view point and soak in the Kodai weather.

Here there is nothing much to see apart from the climate which is exceptionally good. Most of the time due to fog you wont be able to see the Piller Rocks.
