Ooty

Amidst the glory of the splendid blue-hued Nilgiri mountains in Tamil Nadu, lies the fascinating little town of Ooty. The quaint green paths, overshadowed by towering pine trees, reminds one of an English countryside. The charming colonial era bungalows take you back to the British era. In contrast, the bustling town centre consists of chaotic streets, busy markets and throngs of tourists. Over the years, Ooty has developed as one of the major retreats in South India. The town attracts people from all walks of life, from newlyweds to families looking for a weekend getaway. The Botanical Garden and Rose Garden are home to thousands of species of flora. The boat house at the pristine Ooty Lake provides breath-taking views and even features a mini train. If you are curious about the process that your favourite tea undergoes before reaching the shelves, do visit the Dodabetta Tea Factory. The irresistible aroma of the freshly brewed tea can be sensed from a distance. Also, make sure that your shopping bags contain a box full of delicious chocolates from Ooty, en route your home.
