About

Kodaikanal. Sure you have heard this name before!


It's one of the best hill stations you will ever come across in southern India with its altitude of 2100 meters above Sea level, very cold weather & thick forest cover throughout the year. It's a very famous honeymoon destination too!


But we at Muddie Trails, as part of #MuddieSide and #MuddieSeries, will take you on an amazing voyage to the offbeat & never before seen side of this pristine hill station.


Presenting you three great lakes of Kodaikanal. One of them is very famous & known to all, the other one is unknown but extremely beautiful, the third one is the best-kept secret of Kodaikanal where we will head for a fantastic trek!


It's time you #getmuddie in the #MuddieSide of The Princess Of Hills - Kodaikanal!

The “Offbeat” theme of Muddie Trails

Muddie Trails provides real offbeat experiences for the travelers like trekking, hiking, camping, bonfire, adventure activities, barbecue, visiting, exploring and experiencing the less known but awesome destinations that are not crowded with tourists. We do NOT take travelers to a tourist place unless it is required as a "filler" in the itinerary between two offbeat places. Travelers are requested to refrain from asking our organizers to take them to ABC temple or XYZ church. The itinerary is already decided and posted based on our offbeat theme. The organizer will only change the itinerary/schedule if any place cannot be done because of unpredictable reasons. If you have a wish list of tourist places to tick off in your mind, then probably Muddie Trails is not for you and we request you - please do not register.
