“Disappointing”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

It is around 20 minutes drive to the peak. The road is very bad in patches. The traffic can be heavy and the queue for entry ticket at the peak long. The air, which once used to be pine scented, is now laced with exhaust fumes of the vehicles going up and down the peak.

The peak commands a bird's eye view of Ooty on clear days.
Parking and paid toilet facilities are available.

“Heavy traffic on the way”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

It was heavy traffic on the way, we parked our car down the hill and walked up. Nothing worth to see over there. It was rush over there.

“Its Chilling”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

Very chilly out there. Almost zero visibility beyond the peak railings. Weather too good, but wanted to see the view of land below the peak

“Average.”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

There is not much to see except looking at OOTY from a hill top. Crowded and ascending stairsr makes one tired. Best to avoid it.

“Bad roads, good view, overall average experience.”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Most important, make sure you do not go during a foggy or rainy time. You will be able to see absolutely nothing! The approach after the main highway for about 2kms to the peak is very very bad.
