Alight here for the famed hill station Kodaikanal. Buses and cabs are available right outside the station, timed to the arrival of trains. Travelers are advised to be sure of cab rates beforehand so as not to be fleeced. Approx. 80 km by plain road, ghat roads, and hairpin bends. Alternatively one can get down at Dindigul (DG) also, a bigger town, which entails a longer road travel, approx 95 km.
