about needle rock

One of the most amazing places to get a 360 degree view of the Nilgiris, Needle Rock is much more than just a viewpoint. Leagues apart from an usual sunrise and sunset point, it's a gorgeous place, with the drive from Ooty being a major draw to come all the way up till here.

Also known as Soochimalai, owing to its conical shape, Needle Rock sees a steady trickle of visitors all day along. Backpackers, loners, families, there's something for everyone here. With the calm wind ruffling the hair of the curious travellers, whom you can often see being lost in the surroundings, it's an experience of a different sort. Some 8 km from the village of Gudalur, it's a great place to go trekking and backpacking as well.

Needle rock is a very pleasant ansd safe place in Ooty. You can enjoy lots of things such as very nice scenery, fabulous view of the valley and mountains. The entrance fee is very cheap only Rs. 5 per head.
