Vattakanal (or, Vatta as it is popularly known) is not just a place, it is an emotion. Situated in the state of Tamil Nadu, it is often described as the lesser known sister of Kodaikanal (popularly known as 'Kodai' or 'Kodi'). ‘Vatta’ in Tamil means circle and ‘Kanal’ means forest, which explains how Vattakanal is a paradise made of forests in circles, where you may get lost physically but it also has the strength to lift you up spiritually. A place very close to nature, with a variety of flora and fauna, Vatta is home to these 6 things - huge pine trees, wild Bisons, clouds below & above you, Israelis, mushrooms and Altaf’s Cafe. As intrigued as you are by now, let me state upfront that Vatta is not for everyone. Choose wisely.

Malvika Mayur, Travel Blogger 

Hi! I am Malvika.

I am currently pursuing my second Masters in International Hospitality and Tourism Management from Cardiff University.

Having travelled with family, since a very young age, grown up in cities other than my own, and taken Diwali vacations to nearby countries, it was no surprise when the travel bug bit me.

Trekking in the Himalayas and lazing on the beaches of South Goa is something I can never get bored of. While I try to make myself comfortable wth solo travelling, I prefer travelling with someone, but only one. I call myself a twin traveller.
