A small but
significant tourist place in Ooty, the Needle Rock Viewpoint is a popular
tourist spot that I located in Gudalur. The place is signified by a huge rock
that is in the shape of a cone from which the name was inspired. Standing between Pykara and Cuddalore, it is
a common practice to travel to Pykara, a
beautiful place in itself and then progress to this gorgeous view point.
surroundings of this attraction are enveloped in dense, green eucalyptus trees
which are fragrant and shady at the same time. Like a scene right out of a
storybook, the vistas from this magnificent view point are stunning to say the
least. The sight of the jade greens spreading out as far as the naked eye can
see, is topped off the blue tinged mountains of the Nilgiris.
You can also
witness the visuals of Mudumalai Wildlife Sanctuary, Bandipur Forests and the
unreal sight of the Aanakkallu or 'Sleeping Beauty Mountain’ that exactly
resembles the shape of a sleeping woman! The beauty of this place can only be
seen and no amount of description can ever do it justice!
