This place remains closed on every monday. Opt for van/bus tour which costs 150 rs per person rather than jeep tour. Very calm and beautiful place to spend good time.

We booked the jeep of Forest Dept. The first stop was the Shola view point. The trees like green Cauliflowers. The next stop was near the Bhavani amman temple. The last stop was the upper bhavani lake.

Beautiful lake, together with the other emerald lake. This has sunset views. It’s fun to play skipping stones here.
