Good initiative nonamio. Excellent Photos. Thanks to Senthil, Dhanapani and Karthik. Just a suggestion, as a localite, we all know these places very well around cbe. If you guys provide more details like approx. distance from Coimbatore City, Route, Best Season to visit etc...along with snaps, it will be useful for the first time vistors.

Malls / Multiplexes / Movie halls are NOT weekend getaways Lot of people have a notion that CBE doesn't have a good outdoor weekend getaway place which I strongly object to. If we strictly limit this thread to Forest preserves, Parks, Museums, Dams, Waterfalls and Historical sites we don't have to dig thru between Restaurants and Malls to find valuable information.
Also instead of just posting photos, I would suggest to to append information like "How to get there?", "Facilities available on the outdoor location" etc.,
As I mentioned in the Coimbatore infrastructure thread, I am still in the priliminary stages of putting together a powerpoint presentation to improve Western Ghats, Forest preserves etc., at CBE. Those info will be valuable for me too while coming up with that.
This thread can be used to update development activities, projects on the suburban area, taluks in Coimbatore such as Pollachi, Annur, Mettupalayam, Kinathukadavu taluks and towns and villages around it which are all 30-40 kms from city limits
