We had visited Bison Valley on our way to Maumalai Tiger Reserve. We left early in the morning. The journey was really adventurous through 36 hair pin bends. The view is just spectacular. We saw elephants, deers and peacocks on our way. A must visit.

The Bison valley is located among the Kalhatty ghats while you drive from Ooty towards Masinagudi through the Mudumalai Tiger Reserve. We had the fortunate chance to explore the entire downhill stretch of 36 hairpin bends on bicycles and en-route we visited the Bison valley. The view of the Bison valley is amazing and it really refreshing

Bison valley gets people polarized. Some people love it and others hate it. I personally have enjoyed it every time I have went there. This place comes while you are driving to Ooty from Masingudi or Vice-versa. This is a shortcut road to Otty and demands excellent driving skills as there are 36 Hair-pin bends and special care should be... More
