Two more buses and more than a hint of travel sickness, and we arrive at another hill station. So much cooler and fresher up in the hills... Apple orchards and Gum trees replace the now familiar Tea.
Rejecting noisy hotels in town, we found what felt like an old cow shed perched at the top of the hill...the views were absolutely breathtaking, and almost all to ourselves.
Guy was awake at sunset everyday taking in the mountains. In the mornings the clouds covered the valleys so we were above them looking onto carpets of clouds, Kodaikanal, highly recommended.
Here we were able to go exploring, taking very long walks around the hills. We found playful Monkeys, moody Bison, and many many panoramic views. Cheecky monkeys all over following you, never trust a monkey. Kodai town was quaint and had a strong Tibetan contingency, Momos all round.
The Sunday market brought the little town to life, with all sorts of colours and smells, and loud determined haggling over fish, fruit, veg, fresh herbs, and all kinds of tasty fare.
If we ever get the chance this would be a wonderful place to return to.
