Overview & Highlights

Kodaikanal is a city in the hills of the Dindigul district in the state of Tamil Nadu, India. Its name in the Tamil language means “The Gift of the Forest”. Kodaikanal is referred to as the “Princess of Hill stations”. There are few more refreshing Tamil Nadu moments than leaving the heat-soaked plains for the sharp pinch of a Kodaikanal night or morning. This misty hill station, 120km northwest of Madurai in the protected Palani Hills, is more relaxed and intimate than its big sister Ooty (Kodai is the ‘Princess of Hill Stations’, Ooty the Queen). It’s not all cold either; days feel more like deep spring than early winter. Centred on a beautiful star-shaped lake, Kodai rambles up and down hillsides with patches of shola (virgin forest), unique to South India’s Western Ghats, and evergreen broadleaf trees like magnolia, mahogany, myrtle and rhododendron. Another plant speciality is the kurinji shrub, whose lilac-blue blossoms appear every 12 years (next due 2030).

Jaisalmer Trip 18-Dec Wanderon After a fabulous first experience with WanderOn at Spiti, I went on another expedition and this time it was deserts at Jaisalmer. Commute, stay and travel was very well organized. ACCOMMODATION Desert Stay: We were put up at Country Side Resorts at Sam Dunes and the tent stay was a memorable experience. The room was tidy, bed was comfortable and the washroom was clean and almost as big as the room (I ain't complaining ) Indian food prepared in local style was served. Food was decent, though it won't satisfy your taste buds if you are looking for delicious Rajasthani cuisine. However, Pakoda and garam Chai served on a chilly night was a winner! P.s. carry some food if you are picky. There aren't many options around. City Stay: Hotel Bansuri was located in city center and was a comfortable place to stay. Experience Part of the Itinerary ️ Sand dunes, dune bashing, camel ride ️Cultural shows and bonfire ️Ghost Town - Kuldhara ️ Patriotic trip to Longewala War Memorial ️ Rooftop restaurant - Cafe Kaku ️ Palaces Beyond Itinerary Experiencing desert on a pitch dark night Dancing our hearts out on the DJ night Star-gazing and watching a shooting star Soulful musical nights by Captain Shivam Intriguing Story-telling session by Captain Shourya Colorful culture, shopping and food of Rajasthan Bird's-eye view of the Jaisalmer fort Incredible pictures to flood your Instagram (you should check mine, to see what I'm talking about - second_favorite_f_word) Going that extra mile to make your journey memorable Amazing camaraderie with all the team captains - Shourya, Shivam, Nidhi & Aditya Suggestions Loved every bit of the trip but I would have enjoyed it better if it was atleast a day longer coz I couldn't cover some of the places Tanot Mata Temple (@Shourya, you knew this was coming ) Khaba Fort Bada Bagh/ Vyas Chhatri Gadisar Lake Some more palaces & museums - Salim ki Haveli, Nathmal ki Haveli, etc. All said and done, I truly believe Wanderon goes that extra mile to make your trip special and it's their Human Touch that's making all the difference! Special thanks to Shourya and Shivam for everything ️ WanderOn, thanks to you, I'm hooked to travel for life!

Me and my friends have travelled with wanderon to different places several times as solo and in groups and Everytime the execution of itinerary was perfect. I think that's the speciality of them that they maintain quality of experience. good stay options, comfortable travel, nice people in the group etc. Recently travelled to Jaisalmer on new year with Abhishek, Aditya and Nidhi as group captains and how amazingly they managed everything from arrangements to group engagement. Wonderful. Kudos team. 6 🌟 to the team.

New Year Trip - Jaisalmer A big step taken this year to go for a solo trip for the first time. I had this fear of what will happen if I go solo, will the people around be good or not, I might get bored all the time and the list goes on and on (till the very last minute before the buses left). But busting all the fears and myths this was bu far the best trip I have ever been too (never enjoyed this much on any trip). I must say the itineraries and packages offered by WanderOn are one of the best when compared to the ones offered by the direct competitors. Managing a group of 80 people is never an easy task when it comes to traveling. You need to get everyone on-board and ready always to meet all the timelines and hats off to all the Team Captains who worked hard for this successful trip. And this is for all the people travelling in my bus "You guys were really to be with, let's be in touch always and plan more and more trips together - love you guys" Glitches are always there when you organise something and if it is somewhere outside your hometown then everything is not always in your hands. So I would choose not to highlight those minor minor things because in the end what matters is what is your takeaway from the trip and there is nothing more beautiful than the memories/bonds/stories that are created in last few days. Thank You - Nidhi for coordinating everything from Jaisalmer and making sure that we get a smooth check-in as we reach the tents, Sonal and Amit for keeping the bus journey really fun and special thanks to Amit for all those pictures and videos we shot at multiple places, Shourya for handling all the stuff and making sure that if anything goes off track you have the solution ready for it, and lastly Afreen for bringing such a positive vibe through the journey and handling some really tough people. Looking forward for another trip with you guys. PS: isse pdh kr pighle nhi, sakhti bnaye rkhe ;p

I have been on 2 trips (Tirthan valley & Jaisalmer) with WanderOn & the best thing about WanderOn is that they make the travellers to interact with each other by doing some crazy activities. I have never seen any other travel community do the same. Team captains incredibly did their job. I would like to appreciate captain “Kumar Abhishek” (Jaisalmer 27dec-31 dec 2019) one of our team captain. He handled the things very well with a smile on his face. Never seen a captain like him 👏 .
