  • While traveling from Ooty to Mysore, we have visited lovely place known as Needle Rock View point. To enjoy the views of this place we need to climb about 500 m the rock. While climbing the rock mood was bit disturbed that what is so great in this place, but as soon as we reached top of the cone (needle) the view became extremely beautiful. All the four sides can be viewed from the top of the hill and then we felt it’s really worth to climb a little. I feel it’s really a good place to visit during sun rise and sun set. Overall in my view the people loving nature must visit this place....
  • Nice and clean place. There is no parking place here. But can park besides the road. Open between 6 am - 6 pm. Small entry fee. No purchase places. A lot of scope for photography.
