What travellers are saying
- Heritage train travel is a pleasant one and enjoyed the trip from Coonoor to Ooty and it took nearly one and half hour. Attached one coach as first class, but it is looking like other coaches and little congested. Though they are charging huge amount, facility is to be improved. Children enjoyed the travel of fun ride in the heritage train.Written 23 June 2022
- Very well-laid out, an expansive path of green. with some really old trees. The garden has multiple levels, so quite a few steps to climb. Overall, an enjoyable place - can easily budget an hour or two.Written 9 June 2022
- Dolphin's Nose is one of the important site seeing place in Coonoor and it is about 12 Kms from the town. Car parking facilities are there. Entrance fee is there. One can view nice sceneries, valley, plain land etc. Other side of Catherin falls can be seen in long view.Written 23 June 2022
- This tea garden is on a hill top. You get a beautiful view of the terrain and a golf course down below. The factory visit is quite interesting if you are keen to know how the different types of teas are processed. Our bad luck that they were not operational. The guides were good and their services were voluntary.
All in all a good tripWritten 1 April 2020
- Lamb's Rock is another important site seeing point in Coonoor and it is on the way to Dolphin's nose. The rock is named after the former collector Lamb. Entrance fee. We have to climb the little hill (without proper steps) and on the top , we enjoyed the valley, tea garden, etc.Written 23 June 2022
- Located in a vast tea plantation, hosted by Mr. Sandeep, who’s passion for all things “tea” is seen in his enthusiasm to explain in detail, all about tea - from growing to manufacturing to brewing, His 22 years of hosting the Tranquilitea - tea tasting experience…makes it a very enriching event, for all, from the first timer to the connoisseur. One starts understanding terms such as body and flavour with reference to tea brews, that are usually associated only with alcoholic beverages.
In all, keep an hour to hour and a half, to have really insightful tea tasting with Tranquilitea. One can also purchase their home grown speciality teas.

- We visited this place as my niece who has heard stories about this place wanted to desperately see it. The gate is mostly closed and only open when the guard is present. My niece and hubby had to go over the wall to check the place. We had kids and senior members with us so most of us chose to stand out. The place is definitely haunting and isolated. There is a path behind that has very beautiful and breath taking view of the valley.Written 19 May 2019
We had visited this beautiful British era Church during our sightseeing in Coonoor. The caretaker at the Church was welcoming and very friendly and eagerly explained us about the history of the place. This Church is 165 years old built during British period and showcases beautiful Gothic architecture. The main altar shows Jesus and others in colorful stained glass. The Church compound is also very well maintained with flower beds.Written 17 February 2020

- Scenic water body. clean and well maintained. there is parking space at the base of the dam near a temple. Drive to this Dam is also very scenic but is single lane road.Written 30 December 2021
- The Droog fort you see in the pics (walls and clock tower) has been bought by someone and is a private property now. No one knows the where abouts of The "Droog Fort", the pictures of which are posted here. The google map location is that of the 2 storey watch tower, pictures of which are also posted here. However the trek to the watch tower, though the nonsuch tea estate was one of the most picturesque and memorable experiences for me. There is a motorable road till the base of hills from where the trek begins. There are stairs and rocks and the way is marked by crude white arrows. The view point is the highest point in the entire region and one can get a bird's eye view. One can see the clouds floating around. The entire trek takes about 1.5 hrs one way. It gets sunny and hot around noon so pls plan your trek accordingly.Written 30 December 2021
- We had visited the Brookland Tea garden during our sightseeing in Coonoor. We had gone on a Sunday afternoon and found that the entrance gate to the tea estate was closed. We were disappointed but we clicked pictures of the lush green sprawling tea garden filled with beautiful silver oak trees from the outside.Written 17 February 2020
