Gudalur is a city in Western Tamil Nadu, India. Gudalur is a cheap alternative to Ooty as there is very little traffic and accommodation is not that expensive. Other than the beauty of nature, there is not much to see in Gudalur.


A place with mountains and valleys, Evergreen forests, growing spices, tea, coffee, paddy and vegetables. Gudalur is the meeting point of three cities -- Mysore, Ooty and Calicut.

  • ICH or Indian Coffee House offers quality vegetarian food.



  • Hyrana Homestay in Calicut offers cottage like rooms inside a tea estate. They charge around 1,000 rupees per night. However, it is about two kilometres from the Gudalur town and food can be a problem there.
