Located 40 kilometres from Ooty, the Needle Rock View Point offers a stunning view of the beautiful mountains. The view point is named so for its 360 degree view of the whole terrain and combined with the clouds that touch the mountain peaks- offers one of the best views of the Nilgiris. The pathway that leads to the view point is just as mesmerising.
The highlight however, is seeing the sunset. Pack a small picnic to spend some quality time in the lap of nature, to make the most out of your visit.

Needle Rock View Point, Ooty Reviews - Write a Review
A thrilling experience. After visiting Pykara boat house, we searched for nearby tourist places on Google and found this. Though the distance is 20 km and I was rather late, we decided to give it a try. A long walk up to a view point through the clouds. What a splendid view of the mountains.
Such a scenic place to be in. It is almost 50 km away from Ooty and 9 km before Gudalur. One of the best places to see when you go for a trip to Ooty. A little bit of a walk though, you will get you see a whole new level of aerial view from this place. Parking is a bit of a struggle here since you'll have to park the car/bike on Ooty-Gudalur road. But, Once you get there it is absolutely stunning. Also, try walking down the watchtower to the rocks and the view is prettier there.
Entry fee is 5 bucks. You need to walk through narrow passage to reach the tip. Passage is protected with grills till the end but at last, in between , there won't be anything to hold. Once you reached the tip, the view is awesome. See the pics.
One of the most beautiful place that I have ever visited. Ill say if u miss this there is no point in going to ooty
One of the best in Ooty.. it comes around 40 Kms before reaching Ooty.. if you are driving down from Mudumalai national park.. This is worth exploring.. but you would easily miss the entrance of you are driving so better put your Google maps on
