A stop at Dum Dum Rock View point refreshes and rejuvenates the tired travelers. The view point is situated on the Batlakundu-Kodai Ghat road. A viewing tower is strategically constructed to get a spectacular view of the Manjalaru Dam and Thalaiyur waterfalls.
Water spread at the foothills of the surrounding hills is serene and a great opportunity for photographers.
On a clear day, far away in the hills you can see the Thalaiyur waterfalls also known as Rat Tail Falls. It is the highest waterfall in Tamil Nadu and third highest falls in India.
It is believed that Lord Muruga used to spend some time here on his way to Palani.
