Lady Canning Seat - a quick steep climb and you see the BLUE mountains. This small view point is a great promoter of the Nilgiris by name. Do stop by for few minutes and ensure you enjoy the view. This is 3 kms before Dolphin's Nose. All along - we would see nothing but Blue Mountains! Definitely, it was a... More

The whole area around Coonoor is dominated by tea plantations cut into lovely natural vegetation. The views across Lady Cannings Seat are wonderful as are the surrounding tea plantations.

Nice scenic view of trees covered by the hills. Its like the Shape of sleeping lady. Photography was superb. The misty and fog surrounded by the hills. Worthy visit.

It is just a view, but stunning view. It is worth to visit, in font the curve tea estate and background the big mountain, but we have stand on the road. It is main road.

This is the most beautiful scenic view point to see.. The hill was in the shape of sleeping lady. It was drizzling when we went there, with a good amount of fog surrounding and clouds on the top. I loved it.

This place resembles a sleeping lady hence the name. It is located at some height. View is great. One time visit.

Absolutely stunning views from this place. This is en-route to Dolphins nose, and the roads are a pleasure to drive on. They are narrow, but the views are spectacular. You are quite literally above the clouds, while emerging from a really thick growth of trees and foliage.

Thought this would be more of a challenge but it is less than 100m walk up a gentle slope to a view point, slightly spoiled by the wire mesh fencing, litter and ugly concrete structure that would appear to be Lady Canning's Seat. Despite these issues it is worth a quick dash up the hill for the view back towards... More
