“Magical Place”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

Lucky to reach here on a cloudy afternoon. Briefly enjoy the cool breeze on the top of this place. The landscape view of the nearby mountains from this point is worth every single minute spent on our drive from Bangalore. Fantastic place to chill out. Must see in Ooty.

“Good point”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

Actually it is a lot of climb uphill. The day I went it was very very cold and windy and it had rained sometime back.So it was slippery too. So mind you if you have kids or elder people, then it is not advisable to climb so high.However once u reach there, it is a nice view - can beat any European destination anyday! So very pretty! Greenery all around and hills,etc - nice!

“good place for photography”
Reviewed June 6, 2012

u can get nice 360degree panoramic views of the valley around. there are two spots 6th mile and 9th mile. one can check out the horse ride too. U've to climb the hill to get the views, so not recommended in hot sun, as it is a grass hill, n no trees.

“The old movie shooting spot”
Reviewed June 5, 2012

Olden days when international locations were not feasible for the shooting of the movies, this was the location which was much sought after by the directors. It’s a good place. You can climb the mountain and can have great view of the valley and the mountains around.

“nice”
Reviewed May 11, 2012

was a good place. but summer is a time when a lot of people visit ooty. it looked more like a picnic spot with so many people. You try going during off season.
