Things to see and do in Dindigul
By its very nature, wildlife is elusive and difficult to spot. Nevertheless sightings are not uncommon, and you may be lucky enough to see Leopards, Bison, Wild Boar, Mongoose and Monkeys. A variety of Chameleons and Lizards are common. Chipmunks however, are visible everywhere!
Stroll around the Lake
This easy and popular walk is best undertaken in the morning before the sun gets too hot. As you stroll along, the track will take you past Coconut and Mango Plantations and many tall Palmyra Palms. This walk will give birdwatchers the opportunity to get close to the many species of water birds around the Lake borders.
A walk of an hour and a half brings you to a waterfall which is a magnificent sight, especially after the monsoon rains. You can take a cooling swim in a natural rock pool to freshen up before the return walk.
Cardamom House tries to provide one of their knowledgeable English speaking Tamil staff to accompany guests on an excursion to this nearby village. The chance to meet and talk to the villagers is a highlight of this insight into village life.
