Things to do - United-21 Resort, Kodaikanal
Boat Club of Kodaikanal offers row boats on hire, with or without a boatman. You
get an entirely different perspective of the abundant beauty of the lake’s
surrounding from the boat.
Cool forest paths and tree-lined roads make cycling popular in Kodaikanal. You can
hire cycles for a nominal rate and breeze through the 5-km road that circles the
lake or make short but slightly uphill excursions to places like Pillar Rocks.
Horse riding –
Horse riding to various nooks and heights of the hills is a favorite activity among
tourists in Kodai. Horse riding routes and distances are usually fixed, but you
can also hire a horse to take off on new soft riding tracks.
The Europeans introduced carp and trout into the higher-elevation streams of Kodai,
making angling or fishing a popular sport. Locally available bait called ‘vadai’
is made from well spiced peanut flour patties fried in oil. The thick crust helps
the bait stay on the hook when attacked by the fish.
There is a plethora of trekking routes you can opt for in Kodaikanal.
