It is quiet. It is small. It is also not very tough to access, particularly from Bangalore or Salem-or from Bangalore via Salem.
The drive does not tire you out, as it is just around an hour from Salem.
There is almost nothing to do, so you end up doing that.
The walks are just great.
Good food is available in some of the restaurants, and more importantly, the hotel guys in most small hotels will cook to order.
Haven't been there now for a few years. Time to go again.
