For Adventure Lovers

People who are sick of riding on cities and highways, if they love off road can try this place.Pakkasuran malai is located at foot hills of Coonoor.This is one of the remote place. You have to enquire locals for way to reach there.. Nearest known place is nonsuch estate..This place is a Buzzer zone and you can't stay up there, best time to visit is 9am to 4pm.There is a peak where there is magnificent view for that you have to trek for 3 to 5 kms.. Purely not advisable for family..Be careful about wild animals, Bears, Bisons and Elephants roam around..Best climate, rough route, magnificent view are the bests of the hill..Carry your own food and materials.. Since you won't find anyone beyond a point.

Takes you to the past

This is an awesome place ever seen in my life at a distance of 13 km from Coonoor, the Droog takes one into the past, with the ruins of a fort, which was once used by Tipu Sultan in the 18th century (Pakasuran Malai).
