There is no single corner Ooty where you are not bathed in the fragrance of Nilgiris. One of the famous hill stations of Tamil Nadu, Ooty, is surrounded by Western Ghats' beautiful mountains, which makes your stay delightful.


Ooty is a perfect weekend gateway and overnight journey away from cities like Bengaluru and Mysuru. There are plenty of things to explore like Tiger Hill, Pykara Lake, Doddabetta Peak, Ooty Lake, Botanical Garden, etc. If you have more days in your hand, you could also try visiting Coonoor, which hardly an hour away.

Talking about Ooty, you should definitely read my essay on how I proposed my wife, because it happened in Ooty 😉.
