Tiger Hill Cemetery - Review
Tiger Hill Cemetery is a 19th century graveyard. It was primarily used by the British for their war burials. Located amidst a tea plantation, this graveyard has burials dating long back. The entrance of the cemetery has a stone gate with an arched gateway and a steeple. The memorials are simple, with a few of them having ornate designs, sculptures and beautifully written epitaphs. Though most of the burials belong to the officers of East India Company and their family members, some of them belong to the locals too. Quite a few people from abroad come here to trace their family roots.

Tiger Hill Cemetery, Coonoor Reviews
you get a lovely view of the area from up here and its even more beautiful during the sunset. the view of the valley from up here looks brilliant and the weather is windy and cool. the Fog sets in later on and early on in the morning. the place is mostly covered with fog but this area has a good view under the fog. take some pictures from here before heading up higher. as mostly the higher areas will have too much fog.
Must go to this place.. but, be careful it is a haunted place.. and restricted area in Ooty.. Recommended travel in group so that tiger can have a good meal.(Just kidding). we didn't see a tiger but, thr is some (according to locals). U need to walk to reach this spot (1km*). Don't get lost searching for the place.. and don't trust google map i will take you wrong route.. Be safe..
Difficult to reach the destination. Thrilling offroad. Trucking mood
No security until its 6pm...better to visit the place with friends nd dnt go with ur GF alone!!! expect some alcohoilc faces!! Apart from that a cool place for one time visit
Tiger Hill - Google maps is wrong, ask around and you will get there, really lush and wild area, you can walk around for hours.You have to walk for around 3-4kms to got the place, so basically its a trek.you can't reach upto to the point via vehical and need to take walk inside forest upto 2km. Recommend to go only in groups.
