Coonoor- An Underestimated Hill Station In South India


Nestled snugly in the lap of the beautiful blue Nilgiri Hills, Coonoor is a quiet hill station in Tamil Nadu. About an hour away from Ooty, Coonoor is a lesser-known yet delightful  retreat, covered by aromatic tea gardens, undisturbed shoals forest, and grassy meadows.

Having featured in famous films like Kapoor and Sons, it has captured the imagination of many a traveller.

The best time to visit Coonoor is during the winter months of October to March. The temperature remains ranges from 10 to 20 degree C and is good for sight-seeing activities. The greenery of tea plantations clubbed with the morning mist gives the place a dreamy feel and makes it an ideal getaway from the urban hustle-bustle.

A cornucopia of marigolds, sunflowers and rhododendrons, it is the perfect place to romance your beloved.

Some of the must-visit places in Coonoor are the Lamb’s Rock, Dolphin’s Nose Viewpoint and Kattery Falls.
