Take a drive to Baba Budangiri: the second-highest peak in the mountain range, it remains a popular pilgrimage site for Hindus and Muslims owing to its shrine to Sufi saint Baba Budan. At the lofty height of 1,895 m (6,217 ft), you'll gain some spectacular views across the country from the Chandradrona range, the tallest between the Himalayas and the Nilgiris. Look out for a scenic waterfall, about 4 km (2.4 miles) from the subterranean shrine. Other nearby attractions include a lake, various other shrines, and three caves with siddha tombs.

  • This place would scare you for sure if you are going during the winter season, and the reason would be because of the wind. One must visit there on an early morning during winters, it was mind blowing and so refreshing, and make sure that your ears are covered up properly before getting out of your vehicles.
  • Awesome view. Chilly winds, clouds, waterfall. Best time to visit : September - Jan. Check weather for rain forecast.
