Lamb's Rock, Coonoor

#4 of 16 in Things to do in Coonoor
Lookout · Tourist Spot
The vantage point of Lamb's Rock looks out onto green hills enveloped by mist, and a jagged mountain cliff rising 1,250 m (5,000 ft) above sea level. Right next to the cliff you can explore the ravine, where a stream flows through the humid valley. Have a picnic party at this popular natural haven, which an Englishman named Captain Lamb made accessible by cutting a path towards it. Nowadays, rustic cottages cluster here, each private veranda offering a view of the vibrant tropical landscape.

  • It is a nice view point. The drive is a little bumpy towards the end, but it is good when you reach there. If you take a guide they will tell you what all movies were shot there. You will find several tea estates too on the way to lambs rock. They are also worth stopping.
  • A must visit place in Coonoor especially after the amazing toy train ride to have a too good spectre of the rocky mountains. Best place for a family hang out in the sun and shades along with the enjoyable climate accompanied by the fresh hilly oxygen. Walk up the hill is not too steep rather energetic.
