One of the beautiful view points at Kodaikanal is Coakers Walk.

We got ready early in the morning. Had breakfast to satiate ourserlves at the resort. Reached Coakers walk from our resort. Since it was summers, scenic views were beautiful. The driver stopped car and we saw stunning landscapes under mystical clouds. It was a refreshing scenery. The walk way is about a kilometer. Very nice, calm and quiet place. One can see faraway townships and a beautiful mesmerizing valley view.
