Closest to the equator in India, Tamil Nadu state is a burning ball in summer. But the state also houses some pockets of respite like Kodaikanal. Simply relaxing and peacefully de-stressing, this hill station is an adjective of purity. Seated at chilling 7200 feet, the place boasts misty woodlands, pine forests, rainbow-coloured waterfalls, a Kodai Lake, Dolphin Nose Point, Echo Rock, and Vattakanal Falls

Called by various names like 'Princess of the Hills' and 'The Gift of the Forest', Kodaikanal has been a landing location to fight tropical diseases and high temperatures. 

Espied closely, if Kodaikanal is the hymn, Perumal Peak trek is music. According to local folklore, the peak was once a volcano that stopped erupting 1,000 years ago. It is a moderate 7 km trek (one way) in the Western Ghats, offering spectacular views of the Nilgiris and perched at 2,440 m.

Let's become a spectator of the silenced beauty and surrender to the meaningful depths of offbeat, pristine and less-disturbed places of Kodaikanal. If you are thinking of zeroing in on a place for New Year 2023, count in for Kodaikanal Trekking and Camping experience that comes loaded with Perumal Peak trek and many other sightseeing locations. Meanwhile, Plan the Unplanned team will look out for you, guide you, and care for you just like a family member. We have organised everything for you, your ticket has to be booked. Go through the itinerary; we are sure it will appeal to you. Book your slot at the earliest.

What’s life without adventure? Isn’t the real purpose of life to travel, to experience new places, and witness the sunrise from new mountaintops? This thought is what united Jatin and Tarun over a cup of chai, in spite of being from two unrelated backgrounds (CA and IT). They knew each other since the time Jatin was helping Tarun learn the ways of the wilderness through weekend treks and outings with another traveling group. Their love for traveling and trekking together motivated them to start something of their own. Thus was born “Plan The Unplanned”, where travel goals come true. Under the Companies Act, Plan The Unplanned is incorporated as Unplanned Journeys Private Limited They started their journey on unsteady ground, much like any other company, but they shared an infatuation for travel and adventure with their customers, which amplified their determination, and thus, Plan the Unplanned family keeps getting bigger every day! Just about any travel idea can come alive with Plan The Unplanned…treks, adventure activities like rock climbing, kayaking, rafting, backpacking trips across the country, cultural outings, photo walks; everything that fellow travelers need, to explore the great outdoors together. Well now that the wanderlust has kicked in and you can already see a vacation in your nearest future, here’s what we have to offer!
