Droog Fort

Once a mighty outpost in the time of Tipu Sultan, the Droog Fort is now a prominent tourist attraction visited by all travellers when in Coonoor. It is a delight for trekkers as you need to do some foot travelling to reach this destination. The trek through the Nonsuch Tea Estate itself is adventurous and a cherishing experience.

Also known as the Bakasura Malai, the fort is linked to the legend of a native demon, Bakasura. Today, only a wall of the military outpost remains, with all other walls in crumbles. This historical heritage gives a wide insight into the culture and practices of the medieval period. The proud fortress is a significant place for bird watching and also to get a panoramic glimpse of the hill station.
