The view is unbelievable and a must visit for any one visitng Ooty. It is about 7500 feet above MSL. The panaroma can match any site in any part of the world. WE stopped at a small restaurant for coffee and mouth watering crisp hot Bhajiyas (Indian snacks). Unfortunately do not remember the name of the restaurant.

This is the highest peak in Tamil nadu and has most beautiful natural scenarios that would make the viewers to love and enjoy the day . The most special dish that you can get here is the paper roast and chilly Baji. Suicide point is also located there. We had a good time and felt peacefully.

Please keep the coins as the person in the ticket window is an arrogant person, he will ask for the change only. The telescope view was a... More

This place was just ok, very commercialized compared to few years ago. Just has a scenic view of the Ooty Town and mountain ranges.
