Quick guide for Kodaikanal bound tourists from MDU.
1) Exit from the station. Walk ahead. Take a right turn.
2) Walk to the traffic signal to reach Periyar bus-stand.
3) Take a local bus to Arapalayam bus stand. Bus#48 is one of them. It'd take 15 minutes and Rs.9/- in the bus.
From Arapalayam bus stand, take the bus to Kodaikanal, it'd take 3.5-4 hrs and Rs. 62/- for the journey.
5) In return, the last direct bus to MDU from Kodaikanal is at around 17:15. So DO NOT plan a departure later than that.
6) In case you get late, you can get a Dindigul bound bus to Batlagundu (from where you can change for MDU) but even that service isn't available after 19:30.

Travelled in this train on 9th July 2018. This is my maiden journey after it is LHBfied. The coaches and seats are very comfortable compared to ICF coaches with enough leg space in between rows. Every seat will have a small eating table which was not available in ICF, which is very useful. The coaches are all very new and hence were shining both from inside and outside. The only problem is, the reserved 2S coaches will have only 102 seats unlike ICF which will have 106. So, who ever allotted seats beyond 102, can SMS their PNR to 139 after chart preparation to know their new coach and seat numbers.

There are 3 waiting halls, among them 2 are for AC passengers and 1 of these 2 are reserved for the females. Toilets are not clean. General waiting hall was under renovation as of October 2017. Jan Ahar present (though veg. only). Compartment indicators are present on the pf.
The main road is very near to the station. Ample paid parking space is available.
ATVM and enquiry is at the entrance (platform 1 side). No working ATM within at least 1 km. Good sitting options available on the platform.
(10 min. walk), you have 2 shops where army equipments are sold by private entities, seemed original and cheap. Options available near the road to buy the famous big sized apples.
Amritsar is 104 km away, well connected by highway. 2- 3 hotels at the opposite side of the road. Hotel Mehar's is very good. Hotels seem to be empty but get influx when passengers have no other option than to stay because of train delays. Burgain if you can. Car rentals available on the same street.
It is a village area actually. Big Army and Air force bases are situated nearby. Fighter jets will disturb your ears many times a day by flying very low.
