Palani Ghat Road To Kodaikanal

Road To Kodaikanal




Three weeks back, we were on a trip to Kodaikanal by road.

Kodaikanal, located in dindigul district, Tamilnadu. This one is near Palani hills. Landmark city is Madurai.

From Coimbatore, our usual road trip is through Dharapuram, Batlagundu and then Kodaikanal Ghat Road.

This time, friends informed about the Palani Ghat Road which is less in distance, so traveling takes less time also. 


Road Plans For the Hill


Through Kodaikanal Ghat Road

Coimbatore, Palladam, Dharapuram, Ottanchatram, Sempatti, Batlagundu, Kodaikanal Ghat Road, Kodaikanal.

Distance nearly 300 km

Time 6 h 30 mins


Through Palani Ghat Road

Coimbatore, Dharapuram, Palani, Palani Ghat Road, Kodaikanal

Distance 196 km

Time 4 h 30 mins

We took the Palani Ghat road for the trip. One is through Pollachi, Udumalpet and hitting the hills.
Distance 169 km

Next through, Palladam, Dharapuram and again the hills. Distance 196 km.
Both differ by 20 mins or so.

We planned to hit the hills by second one, through Palladam, Dharapuram for no big reason. Early morning motor ride was a pleasant one. Stopped at Dharapuram for breakfast in a Veg Bhavan.

In Palani, we asked our local google mapsetters, guess whom they are, our loyal auto drivers, the road leading to ghat road. This road first starts as an ordinary one, and then moves slowly climbs the mountain.

Ghat Road..

No big scenery stops in between, but its a pure ghat road, single lane road with bushy side steeps.













Total hairpin bends are 14. And an old tower standing at the first hairpin bend, built in 2009.
















More Pictures showing the steep route. Its possible to drive in day time, but not advisable in night. Usually less vehicles takes this route. If there approaches a big vehicle on the opp direction, then we have to stay back. The road is not that much safe for not so experienced drivers.

And Our Indian Women


Word of Thanks I am so thankful for my agonized women friends who asked and helped me in writing this article. I believe this would certainly helps our women to balance in the social network to some extent.



Indian Women
Indian women, had a definite pattern of living and a very stringent culture of not being out with other men after they got married, whether they are educated or an earning member. For the past one decade, we had seen change in behavioral pattern of our college girls, influenced by the western culture. They love, like or lie down and go well with any other person on earth. The social sites trap these girls into this current, that they are not able to adjust with their partners after the nuptial knot. They compare their men with the other male friends in their network. Many marriages end well in the court. 

If these are all known facts, what is the necessity for writing this article?....Leaving young girls, we beckon the women in their 40s and 50s to defi…

Moms never quit..

Long Skirts



Little things do magic Lilies and chrysanthemums Fold mountains and Hay meadow Shearing wind whistles around lonely boat Dashing clean water murmurs along the shore But the old woman in her hood Is yet to sing the tranquilizing dream  That bloom with love and life
Whatever happens,  Moms never quit to say  Girls should wear long skirts   Then the children  Never fail to follow the Pied Piper
