Lamb's Rock, Coonoor

3.4
#4 of 14 in Things to do in Coonoor
The vantage point of Lamb's Rock looks out onto green hills enveloped by mist, and a jagged mountain cliff rising 1,250 m (5,000 ft) above sea level. Right next to the cliff you can explore the ravine, where a stream flows through the humid valley. Have a picnic party at this popular natural haven, which an Englishman named Captain Lamb made accessible by cutting a path towards it. Nowadays, rustic cottages cluster here, each private veranda offering a view of the vibrant tropical landscape.

  • Lamb's rock is named after a Britisher, hence you do not have to use your imagination to identify a rock formation looking like a young sheep. Good view of the Nilgiri mountain range  more »

  • Quite crowded, as it is a typical place of interest when you're in Ooty. But the route towards it is awesome!  more »

  • you get a lovely view of the area from up here and its even more beautiful during the sunset. the view of the valley from up here looks brilliant and the weather is windy and cool. the Fog sets in later on and early on in the morning. the place is mostly covered with fog but this area has a good view under the fog. take some pictures from here before heading up higher. as mostly the higher areas will have too much fog.
  • Good place to see hill view. You have to track steep hill road. I could not locate a washroom. Parking is available. Free.
  • The way to the lambs rock was the this Ng I liked the most.. clouds n tea garden n trees..n the view of the huge valley was mesmerizing
  • Lot of monkeys here. Good bit of climb. View is spectacular
