Coonoor

Coonoor is a famous hill station in the Nilgiris which is just 17 km away from Ooty. It is at a height of 1839 meters above the sea level. is the second largest hill station in the Nilgiri hills, first being Ooty.



it is famous for tea gardens and tea factories. One can start their trekking expeditions into the Nilgiris by making this place as therir base. The place is known for its great picnic spots and picturesque surroundings. 



One can experience  panoramic view of the lush green Nilgiri hills, with its ravines, valleys, mist-laden mountains from here. This place is also a paradise for birds watchers.



Some of the places  of interest that I have covered in my trip are:
