Longwood shola is en route to Kodanad Viewpoint. After you reach the entrance you can't just drive down to Longwood shola as you need to get permission from Forest office guards at the entrance. For each and every traveler they are not giving permission only for few of them they give. So before inflicting that place get the permission from the forest office from the Kotagiri city and then proceed further.
