Overall Guide : Nice, absolutely scenic place with narrow winding roads. Vistas of tea gardens, waterfalls, greenery, lakes and heritage Nilgiri Mountain Train. To be on safer side, will need own transport or at least hire one.
Not to be missed Rose Garden , Mountainscapes discover Nilgiri Hills lifestyle , botanical garden
