Gudalur is a panchayat town in Theni district in the state of Tamil Nadu. We went there for half a day and started a trip from Thekkady (Spice Village) to Gudalur.
Although it is very close to Kerala, Tamil Nadu is very different in climate, nature and the people. You can see a lot of agriculture there from Mangos, Red Chilly, Rice,..and even grapes.
Prices are half of that in Kerala and so a lot of people go for shopping to Tamil Nadu. The towns looked less developed and people seemed to be poorer than in Kerala but still they were very friendly and happy to see some foreigners.
