One among the best place of attraction in kodai. Just go watch the pillar rocks. People used to say when you throw your cap inside the valley, it will come once again to you. I dont know. But dont try. Good place to watch the clouds in a chill climate. Have a Local Snacks like Milakai Bajji, Corn, Bread Omlet..... More

We picked the wrong day to visit and it was very foggy and pretty much ruined our trip to Pillar Rocks. So pick a clear day if possible and I am sure it will worth it.

This is just a part of a preplanned itinerary of the tour operators. Pillar shaped rocks can be seen from here.
