Trek through the Magical Land of Elephant Valley in Kodaikanal, India
Escape to a place where time stops and the only things you’re expected to do are relax and meander through the magical, green ambiance. Situated in the village of Kodaikanal, the Elephant Valley Eco Farm Hotel exudes the most serene experience. The hotel sits on a large coffee plantation and cultivates a wide array of other crops. The restaurant will take your order several hours ahead of time in order to collect and prepare the freshest food from the land. You can opt to take a three or six hour, guided trek through the valley. For the best chance at observing wildlife, it is recommended to take treks early in the morning, around 0600-0700 hours. If you’re feeling adventurous, follow the defined path along the river for about twenty minutes to reach the cliff of a huge waterfall. The best pictures can be captured around 1800 hours as the sun drifts below the hilltops.
