Ooty & Kodaikanal

Rising above the sweltering tropical plains of Tamil Nadu are the pleasant and dreamy Palani Hills. Patronized by the colonial masters in the centuries gone by, resort towns that dot these green mountainsides have retained the old-world charm. The winding roads, the quaint houses and old establishments, all share a symbiotic relationship with the transcendent views of hilly panoramas. And where the sweep of nature stops, there are tea plantations, with their rich aromas.
