Needle Rock View Point, Ooty Reviews

  • What an amazing place to be... The view and the breeze is breath taking. And if you are a thrill seeker and can cheat the poor watch guy (who disallows people to go beyond the allowed places), you can be on top of earth literally. Must see if you visit ooty... I have visited many hill stations but i have not seen any view points like this. Best of my experience

  • A nice little ascent takes you to the view point and it wont disappoint you.. The view is 360° and its a good one.. a nice spot for photography if you want to capture the valley.. the parking could be a bit of an issue on crowded days..

  • A must see point on the way to Gudalur from Ooty. Scenic drive. A few minutes walk from the main highway to reach the point with little ascent/ steps, Not suitable for handicap/wheelchair. The view is 360°and a photographer's delight. Even if you aren't much into photography, you'll definitely feel the urge to capture the panoramic beauty. Tall trees on the other side of the highway are worth a photo shoot. The breeze along with the view brings chills. It's all green throughout the year.

  • Nice view point. Need to trek a bit. Views are excellent. When we went we were all alone in this place had very pleasant time.

  • This place looks absolutely beautiful. The view from here is amazing. The cold climate and the light winds made this place magical. It closes by 5, i.e, you'll get tickets till 5. The view doesn't get any better after 6. It's better to visit here before 5.
