Amazing view and very clean! The panoramas on a clear day are breathtaking. You can also choose to ride a horse and enjoy the views from a different point.

It's a good place to be. Enjoy the breeze hitting your face. You can see for miles on a clear day. It's a kind of view you see on your computer screen saver. Down part is the filth dumped by the horses. The horse keepers should clean up after their horse.

Amazing place that has to be experienced. We went in the evening prior to Sunset and we didn't feel like returning to the hotel.

Spent much time with my family in this place during our last visit to Ooty. If the weather is good, you would really love to stay much time in this place.

Wonderful place with lots of greenery and amazing view. Great place to sit down for a while and have a quiet moment. Cameras will work over-time here. There is an option of a horse ride also. Even if you don't opt for it, you will not miss anything. Don't miss visiting this place if you are near by.
