Sightseeing in Coonoor

As far as sightseeing in Coonoor goes, there is Sim's Park in Upper Coonoor is a beautifully landscaped garden in the middle of a ravine. A profusion of trees, flowers, shrubs and ferns pepper the woods, right down to the lake at the bottom of the ravine.

Coonoor has many panoramic lookout points along the hillside. From Lamb's Rock , a pretty picnic spot 6 km out of Coonoor, there is a breath-taking view of the gaping Burliyar ravine, and the green ghats rising out of the Mettupalayam plains.

A little further is Lady Canning's Seat , the lookout point favoured by the viceroy's wife, and Dolphin's Nose , an interesting rocky outcrop.

A series of waterfalls - St. Catherine's Falls, Law's Falls and Kateri Falls - gush over cliffs and canyons, carving deep chasms in the rock face. The ruins of Droog fortress are a wonderful summit for bird-watchers and you have a truly spectacular view of the plains all around.
