Coonoor is a small town next to Ooty. It is more peaceful and less commercialized than Ooty. In this trip we explored Lamb's Rock and Dolphin's Nose. On the way back we also visited Shooting Medu in Ooty which is a huge grassland and directors' favorite place to shoot songs during 80's and 90's.

This is one of the guesthouse where we stayed. It's within tea estate and there is no cell phone network. The only thing you can do it to enjoy the nature. There are four rooms and they take booking for up to 12 guests. Service is not really up to the mark as only one person will be doing all the tasks.

Look at the background. This is a restricted jungle in Ooty. Only localities are allowed to go there. Due to high animal activities government has decided to keep it off the tourism. I was lucky enough to know someone from Ooty
