Around 40 kms away from Ooty on the west in gudalur. It is on a hilltop and gives a 360 digree view of the surrounding areas. Being a part of the Nilgiri Hills the beauty is seen to believe.

Travel through the multitude of teak & eucalyptus trees on the road to Ooty (National Highway 67). Stop off in a small lay-by & take the 5 minute walk to the viewpoint. It is definitely worth it. You get a 360 degree view, & great aerial view of the mountains with lush green forest.

The Needle Rock View Point is not very difficult to access while travelling from Ooty and a must visit place because the beauty of the whole area can be seen from the top. The cool breeze on the way to the view point and the occasional mist along with the marvelous view will clear our fatigue and give us a... More

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

Still its our main hideout place with friends. Now the the TN GOVT has made lots of restrictions to protect the natural and... More

I would like to rate this place 10/10 as this place has refreshed me with its lush green forest and trees all over. This place just gives you the fragrance of Eucalyptus trees and the view from the point is just awesome . This view point gives you an entire view of the city. There is about 1 km walk... 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.
