You don’t have to be a wildlife enthusiast in order to visit Mudumalai. Once you’re done with the Tamil Nadu tour itinerary, ensure you don’t miss out on including the popular wildlife sanctuary of Mudumalai, located in Ooty, the ‘queen of hill stations’. Mudumalai is home to the magnificent flora and fauna of the region. You’ll be able to sight jackals, bison, elephants, and, if you’re lucky enough, even leopard, tigers and other exotic animals at the wildlife sanctuary. There are other interesting places to visit at Mudumalai including the Theppakadu Elephant Camp and the Needle Rock Viewpoint.


Next on our list, we have one of the most important spiritual destinations of India—Kanyakumari or the Cape Comorin located at the southernmost tip of India. You can enjoy the world-famous Vivekananda Rock Memorial whilst you can meditate and turbocharge yourself spiritually. Kanyakumari is the meeting point of three seas surrounding the Indian mainland- the Arabian sea, the Bay of Bengal and the Indian Ocean. You can also watch the grand statue of the ancient Tamil poet Thirruvaluvur. You can enjoy the various water-sports activities, and the sunrise and the sunset at the beach. The Shri Bhagavathy Temple is another popular attraction in this district. 


If you are unperturbed by the heat of the city, a trip to Vellore makes all the sense. Visit the medieval fort city of Tamilnadu and the Lotus temple. The regions in and around the district of Vellore also serve the famous Ambur Briyani (similar to the Hyderabadi Briyani style) which you can afford to miss at your own risk. The Tamil Nadu Tourism Department, along with the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI), has set up a museum, inside the fort, that exhibits the ancient Tamil artefacts and manuscripts which are open to the public at specific times. While you’re in Vellore, you can also enjoy the Palamathi Hills and Jalakandeswarar Temple. Vellore also comprises two of the most prestigious medical institutions in our country. 


Ooty is the coolest hill station in the state. The others being Kodaikanal, Yelagiri and Yercaud which also make a fabulous visit. The British from the independence era has left a legacy of its own here to future generations. The very sight of the splendid British architecture inspired buildings in different areas of this bustling hill station is a living witnesses to it. While in Ooty, enjoy the famous toy train ride from Mettupalayam, visit the Ooty Botanical Garden and the lake. Take a panoramic view of the hill station from Dodapetta, the highest peak in the Western Ghats. We feel the above-mentioned destinations are best for Tamil Nadu tours & travels, and it is important that you search for the best travels in Tamil Nadu so as to make your travel in the state a pleasantly memorable one.
