The Offbeat Kodaikanal Camping & Jungle Trek | Muddie Trails

Multiple days 08:00 PM - Kodaikanal · Kodaikanal · Bangalore

Kodaikanal. Sure you have heard this name before!
It’s one of the best hill stations you will ever come across in southern India with its altitude of 2100 meters above Sea level, cold weather & thick forest cover throughout the year. It’s a very famous honeymoon destination too!

But, we at Muddie Trails, will take you on an amazing voyage to the offbeat & never before seen side of this pristine hill station.

We are gonna explore three gems of Kodaikanal on this backpacking trip.
One of them is very famous & known to all, the other one is fairly unknown but extremely beautiful, the third one is a total secret where we will head for a fantastic trek!
