Lamb's Rock, Coonoor

Lamb's Rock in  Coonoor is a view point named after Collector Captain Lamb just 8 kms from the city. It has a stunning view of the Coimbatore plains, tea estates and coffee estates on the slopes of the Nilgiri Hills. 



On the way to the spot there are few shops of local spices, tea by the road side. We bought few items from here and quality was good.



The mountain cliff is at 5000ft above the sea level. Green hills all around the cliff, mist and cool breeze make the visit worthwhile. 



One of the views here is 'Sleeping Lady' as seen above. The top of the mountain gives an impression of a lady in deep sleep overlooking the skies.



It is a mountain cliff with steep depth down below. The view point with concrete shade is standing on the cliff accessible by man-made steps. The walk up to this point passes through a thick forest of various trees some bearing flowers.
