It takes about half an hour enroute to Ooty from Gudalur. No sign boards to indicate this entrance. You can find the point though by the no. of cars parked near this place. Entry fee of Rs.5 and tickets are issued until 5.30 PM only. To reach the view point, you have to trek a little. Say for 500 mts.... More

Rock Point is one of the must visit points in Ooty. This is located outskirts of Ooty. However, the views on the way and Rock view point itself is very good. There are lot of Eucalyptus trees and you can get lot of fresh air. For people from cities which are always polluted, spending some time here is really worthwhile.... More

This is a must visit spot when you travel to Ooty. Even though it is nearly 40 KMs away from Ooty town, it is well worth it. View from the top is amazing.

Whle the Needle Rock isn't the highest peak in the Nilgiris, it's certainly one of the more spectacular. The view of the surrounding area is simply stunning.
