|A view from Coaker's Walk in Kodaikanal.Kodaikanal is sometimes referred to as the "Princess of Hill stations" and is a popular tourist destination.Kodaikanal was established by American missionaries around 1845, as a refuge from the high temperatures and tropical diseases of the plains. The exhilarating ambience and the salubrious climate of Kodaikanal attract thousands of tourists from far and wide nowadays.Coaker's Walk, constructed by Lt.Coaker in 1872, is a kilometre-long paved pedestrian path running along the edge of steep slopes on the southern side of Kodai. The walk winding around Mt.Nebo, starts near Van Allen hospital and joins the main road above St.Peter's Church, providing a panoramic view of the plains. On a clear day one can view as far as Dolphin's Nose in south, the valley of the Pambar river in the southeast, Periyakulam town and even the city of Madurai. A fascinating, yet extremely rare phenomenon called Brocken spectre.Kodaikanal is also an ideal location for adventure tourism and eco-tourism, which are presently gaining momentum in this part of the world. Ample infrastructural facilities have been provided for journey to and fro and for trekking along the secluded wilderness all around.|
