You can optionally decide to go for just one Kodaikanal trekking route out of the above two. Thoppi Thukki Parai means Glorious Point in Tamil. On the trail, there falls Periyur hamlet and Sathanur reservoir, which is one of the large catchments of South India. The steep path has coffee plantation fields. Continue trekking in Kodaikanal till you reach Periakulam. The second trek is 16 km long and is roughly of 07 hours duration. The zigzag trail alongside the Palar River will provide you good excursion. After moving past the Palar-Porandalur reservoir, you will come across a bridle path that will take you to the foothills. Be alert, as elephants are not uncommon here.
