The winding ghat roads in Kodaikanal will take you to Moer Point, a slice of heaven on earth, overlooking the gorgeous Vellagavi Forest. This viewpoint is unlike any other in Kodaikanal, as it lets you effortlessly soak in the natural splendour of the hill station. This spot is named after Sir Thomas Moer, who in 1929 chose it as the starting point for his project of Goschen Road, now popularly known as the Forty Mile Road. You can also have a look at the pillar here that was built to commemorate the inauguration of the road. The area provides a winding pathway that allows you to take a casual stroll and has a watch tower that works as a pedestal from which you can feel like you are at the center of the heavenly grandeur of peaks and valleys. The 360° view is not the only lure of this tourist attraction; this spot is located in a space that often plays host to the quintessential characteristic fog and mist of Kodaikanal. Moer Point acts as a perfect sojourn, clearing your mind on a foggy day or opening it up under clear skies. It is a perfect pitstop for a getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Like the rolling hills and floating clouds over the hillslopes, everything slows down to a relaxing pace in Moer Point. There is no better spot to take in the panoramic view of the hillocks veiled in thin white fog and coloured in wholesome shades of green.
