Kodanad View Point

Reviewed By DrValliappan - Coimbatore, India

Forget the Viewing Point and go on the sides (within protective railing) and have a view of your own point across 3 states..situated at a dead end (pun intended) of Kodanad road from Kotagiri, this is the “high”light of Nilgiris, TN India

Heritage Train

Reviewed By Sam E - Mumbai, India

Traveling in a century old train. Booking early is necessary especially for decent seats in first class - as only few are available. Rack and pinion drive on slopes. Looks to be diesel-steam locomotive pulling/pushing the bogies. Worth the experience to see the hills from the train.

Been there on this Monday with my College buddies as a bike trip.you have to stop ur vehicle 1km before the falls and walk along the tea estate to reach it.The water is cold and not too deep so even the novice can enjoy swimming without fear.

Highfield Tea Factory

Reviewed By AjLud - Coonoor, India

Tucked away on a nondescript hillside, and away from the regular traffic, this estate & factory lie down-slope from the Coonoor-Kotagiri district road, about 2 km from Sim's Park.
The factory is open to visitors with a prior tie-up.
Good for a 30-min detour, if you have the time.
Can buy factory-fresh tea.

John Sullivan Memorial

Reviewed By JojijosephTDPA - Kochi (Cochin), India

Mr. John Sullivan who was the British Collector of Coimbatore in 1817 contributed a lot for the development of the Nilagiris and he deserves even a better memorial. The John Sullivan Memorial at Kannerimukku near Kottagiri has a good collection of photos of the past Kottagiri and the vehicles used then. Though we don't have much to see here, the history says that Mr. John Sullivan contributed a lot for the development of Nigiris. He was a great man with a vision and while seeing this memorial, I was just visualizing the days he was there.

Longwood Shola

Reviewed By Dilip S - Vadodara, India

At 1630 on 15th Nov we zeroed on Dodda aka Longwood Shola of 116 hectares , an immaculate tropical evergreen forest of stunted vegetation found only in the southern part of the Western Ghats , in the immediate vicinity of Kotagiri . More than fifteen villages around Aravenu depend on this Shola as it is the prime source of water to them .
The forest harbours eighty species of birds , Barking deer , Bonnet macaque , Indian gaur , Indian giant squirrels , Nilgiri marten , etc . As Vaijayanti could not walk much , we did not venture deep in the woods . Still we could spot Barking deer , Bonnet macaque , Malabar pied hornbill , Spotted myna and few Indian gaurs .
This is a very good place for trekking as it has very scenic trekking paths .
