I personally suggest all to visit the hotel once.. there are plenty of other resorts and hotels as well but I must say that none can come under comparison of ELK hill... Even the view of the hotel is very pleasant.

As soon as you enter the gates of the property, you fall in love with the place. The impeccably kept flowery gardens...

Sterling Holidays Elk Hill is a small and tranquil set up with incredible views of the surrounding hills and valley. Amid lofty Nilgiri peaks and low passing clouds, the sloping roofs and terracotta tiles of the resort emerge and vanish.
