Educational field trip to Kodaikanal- Feb 28-March 2, 2017


The secondary and senior secondary students were taken on an educational field trip to Kodaikanal- The princess of hills. They were accompanied by 5 staff and they started their journey from Chennai on the 27th of February. It was a perfect get away to beat Chennai’s sunny days. It is a perfect place to soak into nature and spend time away from the city.

They visited the following places during their course of visit:

Bryant park: It is an evergreen park boasting numerous species of trees, plants and cactus.

Coakers walk: A narrow pedestrian stretch which offers a magnificent view of some of Kodaikanal’s famous spots.

Bear shola falls: This falls is active during the monsoon season. Though it was dry , the forest surrounding the falls made it worthy for a visit.

Kodaikanal lake: It is a man made lake which one just can’t miss while visiting Kodaikanal. It is surrounded with a 5km road with various local stores to shop from and a range of street food with lip smacking snacks.

Kurinji Andavan temple: This temple offers a breathtaking view of kurinji flowers which bloom once in 12 years. It also offers a beautiful view of the Palani and Vaigai dam.

Silver cascade falls: It is located en route to Kodaikanal and is a common pit stop for travellers to take a break and enjoy the view.

Chettiyar park: This park is filled with beautifully pruned bushes and flowers which are a feast to the eye.

The students thoroughly enjoyed the trip and took back homeĀ memories to cherish.
