originally known as Ootacamund which is now obscure. Ooty is situated in the
Nilgiri hills, also known as The Blue Mountains. It is unknown whether this
name comes from the blue smoky haze given off by the eucalyptus trees that
cover the area, or because of the kurunji flower, which blooms every twelve
years giving the slopes a bluish tinge. Ooty served as the summer capital of
the Madras Presidency and other small kingdoms, much visited by British during
the colonial days, and as today, a popular summer and weekend resort. Ooty
draws a large number of tourists every year. Lofty mountains, great lakes,
dense forests, sprawling grasslands, miles of tea gardens and eucalyptus trees
greet the visitors en route to Ooty. The hill station itself is a land of
picturesque picnic spots.
Ooty Botanical Gardens- The picturesque gardens that are maintained by the Horticulture department of the state, cover an area of about 22 hectares. The Gardens have well over 650 species of plants and trees, including a fossil of a tree, which is believed to be more than 20 million years old. The garden is very popular with nature lovers and those who long to walk among greenery and see rare ferns and shrubs up close.
Doddabetta peak- stands at an altitude of 2,623 meters. It is the highest point in the district, making it possibly the best vantage point around Ooty. It is merely 10km from Ooty so you can simply grab your camera and head straight to the peak, and click amazing pictures of the valley below. You will enjoy the way up the peak, if you love walking.
Annamalai Temple- is a situated about 20 km distance from Ooty. This place has grown as a famous temple of Lord Muruga, known as 7th Hill house of the lord. The view from the Temple is really awesome. There is an observatory at the top of hill for the public to enjoy the magnificent panoramic view.
Ooty Rose gardens- It’s an amazing and very large area garden. You can enjoy varieties of roses there. If interested can buy the seeds and plants also.
Wax World - (Wax Museum)- It’s a private investment not supported by Govt. Don't expect much like other foreign wax museum which are helped by tourism authorities for advertisements and promotions. But for sightseeing its good. More attraction is the very old house, where the museum is set up.
Sims Park (Coonoor)- Similar to ooty botanical garden, very rare plants and trees are present. The park is famous for the fruit show it hosts annually during summer festivals.
The Tea Factory- Several tree gardens and factories are there. On the way you will get lots of them. They will approach you with free tea taste and offer some tea packets to buy.
Boating at Pykara -It’s an awesome experience. Though the rate of boating is little bit high but still it is worthy. Fresh air, good feeling and good view.
