In a state dominated by hot and dusty temple towns, Dindigal and the surrounding area provides a cooling respite from the lowland heat. With locals heavily relying on traditional industries such as coffee, lock making and leather, this bucolic area enveloped by forest has only become visited by international tourists in recent years. This is mainly due to accommodaiton options such as Rajakkad Estate and Cardamom House opening up. The area is a place to immerse youself in nature and to take time out. It’s the ideal location for forest hikes, bird watching or simply unwinding in the middle of a trip through Tamil Nadu.
