Around 9 km from Coonoor on the Wellington road is Rallia Dam. It is a beautiful spot for trekking amidst the forest. The dam is an age-old that's providing water to the residents of Coonoor. It is one of the most quaint and beautiful dams you could ever be to. The colour of the water is turquoise and it glistens in the sun, hence the best time to visit the dam is during sunrise and sunset. A km of the trek is incomplete without the ride up through the verdant vales.
From the parking spot to the dam, it's 1 km trek along the vast stretch of trees. wild animals like Bisons or Malabar Squirrels are quite often spotted at these premises. Highfield tea factory is its closest neighbour at a distance of 1.5km from the dam. The place is, however, safe to visit. If you're someone looking for serenity and peace, Rallia Dam is a peaceful getaway.
