Best place to visit at sunset

The scenery at sunset is just amazing, You can easily spend few hours in the evening just sitting there and enjoying the view. This place is on the way to pykkara falls.

Worth stopping and spending around an hour. We stopped here on our way down the ghats where the road condition was poor and stopping here was worth our time.

There is a lot of pleasant views in this place. If you got some time, you can take a walk around the hills and click some nice shots. It is views like these that help us from the city de-stress and indulge in nature completely. Worth a visit!

We didn't plan for this location and stopped during our travel from Ooty to Pykara. We liked this place a lot and my son really enjoyed running around in steep slopes. we did take lot of snaps which lush green background. You need to plan for an hour or more for spending time in this location.

It's a nice scenic location and one can easily spend a couple of hours here. Please factor in sufficient time for this spot. You can walk in two directions to get different views. A great spot to get photo clicked with lush green back ground. And there is horse ridding (a small round) for those interested. All in all, I... More

The locals will insist you for a guide, which is in fact not needed. Just go and enter inside, take some really beautiful valley view and enjoy.
