Lamb's Rock, Coonoor

2.5
#5 of 12 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.

Where to stay in Coonoor

The hill station of Coonoor boasts an array of accommodations, representative of its status as an established resort town. The roads that wind their way across the ridges house a number of squat hotels, stylish boutiques, and--on the more residential streets--welcoming homestays. Some heritage hotels can be found, offering a particularly quaint style of luxuriousness. Retreats, with onsite yoga centers, pools, well-maintained gardens, and fine-dining restaurants, tend to position themselves at the extremes of the hill station, to ensure they enjoy extensive views of the landscape.
