  • The tea estate around this place is beautiful. Sometimes you might spot Bison and be careful with wild animals like 🐻
  • Getting here is very difficult and now it is closed but still good place to visit
  • When I reached after asking 50 people the directions and walking almost 15km, reached this place. And it was locked! Had to jump over the wall for your experiencing the place. Had been better if it was open.
  • Nice place but not popular with tourist. Most of buried here is Britishers before independence of india but cemetery is still used for burial
  • An old cemetery made by British people and it was the shooting location of many movies. The way leading to here is bit confusing , ask local people to find it and also please don't damage anything because there are a lot of damages in the graves and the entrance is restricted

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.
