    Good things:
    If you luv nature and deep silence then Pachamalai is right place! Green green everywhere.. No fear while travelling along hill road. Narrow road and about 7 to 9 hairpin bends. Clouds pass away and its our blessings to be inside the cloud..breezy air.. a nature shower ‘water falls’ and top view point make the place more enjoyable.. There is forest bangalow for stay but want to book in advance. Food also provided by the cook in bangalow.

    Bad things:
    Not furnished tourist spot. There is a park but only the board say it is park, no other sign for park. Poor toilet facilities. Even public park and falls doesnt have any toilet facilities. No hotels and canteen for food availibility.

    Totally pachamalai is good place if you adjust any situation. Its better to make arrangements for food and booking the forest bangalow for happy trip in pachamalai.
