Kodaikanal is a small town set around a scenic lake, situated on a plateau above the southern escarpment of the upper Palani Hills that form the eastward spur of the Western Ghats. Established as summer retreat in 1845, when British residents in India fled to the hills as a refuge from the high temperatures and tropical diseases of the plains. The hills that surround the town are covered with fragrant Eucalyptus plantations, meadows, grasslands and Shola forests cover valleys, rocky slopes with streams cascading through and sparkling waterfalls are sure to delight lovers of nature. As will acacia, cypress and pear trees, meadows draped in rhododendron, magnolia and bright yellow wildflowers. Large, vibrantly hued dahlias attract visitors to Bryant Park, an easy hike uphill from the Kodaikanal lake.
