Lamb's Rock - Photo spot

Lamb's Rock - widely famous as Photo spot can be reached by auto or cab or own vehicle. It has nice view of tea gardens. Can take beautiful pics. The floating clouds adds to the beauty of the place. The place can be sunny for sometime and turns cloudy and misty within no time.

Average sightseeing place

Lamb's Rock is an average viewpoint in Ooty which would let you marvel at the nature's beauty. But, I am calling it average because there are many viewpoints which can provide better views. If you are short of time, you can actually skip it. Visiting Dolphin's nose should be enough.

Must see place during Ooty visit

This is the place everybody must and should see, the forest view at the Lamb's rock is awesome and the parking place is slight tight during season. The tea gardens on the way will lock your journey at there, much attractive place at Coonoor.

A great view of tea gardens

This is a high elevation point that gives you a spectacular vantage point to see the city below. It has a very good trek that is the real pleasure in coming here. A small trek of 1 km is all that you should do here. The refreshing air is enough to make you for your worries. A family adventure no doubt.

Mind blowing place

Must visit place, do not miss this spot. Go to the actual viewing point and not to the road side shop roof. Good place for photography. Best to drive a motor bike to feel the freshness of air.

Never to miss this place

People who visit Ooty always miss Coonoor but Coonoor will be worth to watch with horse rides, Sims park, tea estate and other attractions. Lambs rock, dolphin nose, suicide points are worth a watch.

Adventurous place

This is a great off-beat destination slightly away from the town. A bit adventurous place as well. If you are going there during sunset, you might get trapped in fog :-) This is very close to Dolphins Nose. You can infact combine both places to visit in one shot.

Good place to visit

It's very good place to visit. If you are staying in Ooty, then you need to travel to Coonoor to visit the place. It's really beautiful. The view from here is really amazing. If you are travelling to Coonoor then you should definitely visit the place. You need to walk on the stairs amidst the trees and reach the top. It would be good if you have a binocular. You can keep your bags in your cab/bus but you must wear your shoes.
