Life in my opinion is traveling to the ends of the world, experiencing exotic adventures, eating great and then traveling more. The cycle repeats itself! And if you're nothing, then Ooty is one of the places to visit !! Once you're there, here are some things you want to do in the beautiful hill station.


  1. Dodabetta Look Out

That is it! The largest of the beautiful mountains of Nilgiri Point. If you're at the highest point, feeling on top of the world, it's the most incredible view you'll never see (assuming it's a clear day). This place is ideal for photography. The best time to visit Doddabetta Peak would be early in the morning to see the sun hiding behind the lush green forests. Also at night to the sight of the big red ball from light down. You can see the whole city from this peak. Is not it great?! That's one thing you should not miss!


  1. Botanic Gardens

If you are a person of nature who are interested in seeing thousands of little blooming beauties pushing their heads to you, then yes homies, botanical gardens is the right place for you! Founded in 1848, these beautiful gardens are a lively gallery of the natural flora of the Nilgiris. Find a fossil tree that is supposed to be around 20 million years. What is the view would be, looking for those little, little colorful, happy flowers, swinging in the air, giving their best smile to you. Believe me, it's all the time you spend!

  1. St. Stephen's Church

Located at the center of the city, the St. Stephen's Cathedral was built in 1829, is the oldest church in the Nilgiris. It has beautiful stained-glass windows, large wooden beams carried by elephants transported from the Tipu Sultan palace. Sometimes kitschy and sometimes moving, plates and donated by the believers of the colonial era. Generally, it has a nice atmosphere and a blessed sense of peace embracing the house of God. It must be in the list "must-see in Ooty".


  1. Kabab Corner

If you are a gourmet and travel to different places just to eat, then Kabab Corner is an angle that should be sitting. Although not much of an outside viewer, the most amazing kebabs in Ooty are prepared. Once you are there, you get torn pieces of lamb and grilled chicken grilled perfectly. If you are a vegetarian, do not be put off by my description! This place also offers delicious paneer, immersed juices with fluffy Naan triangles. For the good order, I ate my first piece of paneer here and people, I fell in love! I hope you too.

  1. Boat House

This boat trip is done in an artificial lake created by John Sullivan in 1824. The water-flowing mountain peaks in the valley were drained to form Ooty to the lake. The lake became empty three times when he broke his ravine. The lake was originally intended to be used for fishing by ferries used to travel across the lake. It was gradually reduced from its original size leading to the current bus stop, circuit and lake park. The Tourism Development Corporation of Tamil Nadu, commissioned by the Ministry of Tourism, took possession of the lake in 1973, to provide as a tourist attraction. Even if you're afraid of water, this boat trip worth all the money you can get to overcome your fear!



Personally, I have this strange fascination with trains. I think it's the rhythmic puff puff of those wheels, it's just giving me a kick! The unique of this railway is that it is the tallest in Asia. Over a distance of 46 kilometers in about 5 hours, the Mountain Railway Nilgiri takes tourists from Mettupalayam in Ooty or Ootacamund. This is a really great trip that takes tourists from a height of 1069 feet to 7228 feet. And do not forget the fact that it's the most beautiful train ride you'll ever experience!!
