Kodaikanal is undoubtedly a popular travel destination in South India. Not only from South India, but from all parts of India, thousands of tourists travel to this Princess of Hill Stations everyday. However, hardly few tourists know about Gundar waterfalls, the hidden beauty of Kodaikanal. Let us explore about this site in this article.

Gundar Waterfalls is located in the route of Poomparai village at a distance of around 15 kms from Kodaikanal. More than the waterfalls, the 400 m. walk through the forest looks interesting. It is a secluded little known forest with full of tall pine trees. It is a perfect location for cine shooting though I am not sure if anyone has shot this location. It is advisable to go to this place in group for safety reasons.

After 400 m. walk through the forest, you would get to see Gundar falls. The waterfalls is not very tall. In fact the water flow is good only during the monsoon. It falls down and becomes Gundar stream in this site. This place is also called as Neptune's Pool.

Happy travelling.
