Shivesh's 7 days trip to Tamil Nadu

Vacation started off pretty well I'm coimbatore and Ooty. As kodaikanal was 270 kms from ooty but since they both are hill stations,getting down from one and climbing up the other becomes very hectic and tiring. Secondly if staying in resorts ,it's the best way to enjoy at the se hill stations as the options for sightseeing are very limited and can be tiring if you are travelling with baby.

We booked hotel based on agent's recommendation where the hotel was in Chikmangalore main town itself, we expected at hill area like kodaikanal.. which was not explained by the agent. So we had huge disappointment on the same. And we visited the place during restriction time so we cant able to visit all the sight seeing mentioned in the agent's quote.
