Hill Station - Ooty

Nestled snugly in the Nilgiris, Ooty is an ideal summer retreat for the people of southern India sweltering in the heat waves of the summer. Ooty is in many ways a typical hill station. It has orchards of peaches and palm, terraced tea garden and rows of eucalyptus and pine.


Ooty was founded by the British who fell in love with the climate that resembled to some extent that of Britain. Enveloped in perpetual mist, Ooty has a timeless appeal. Ooty is the gem of the Nilgiris that is often referred to as the "Blue Mountain".


People come to Ooty to spend some time enjoying the pure beauty of nature. There is a beautiful Botanical Garden comprising an area of 22 acre. There is also an artificial lake dug under the patronage of Mr. John Sullivan, the then Collector of Coimbatore. At the Mukkurthi Peak and National Park, you will have the opportunity to see some beautiful perennial streams.


One amazing thing about the place is that, there is an amazing similarity between the flora and fauna found here with that of the Himalayas. Mudumalai Wildlife Sanctuary lies at an elevation of 1140 m in the junction of Kerala, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu and extends over and area of 321 sq km.


The climate of Ooty is extremely pleasant. The summer temperature is never more than 25°C and the winter temperature is never less than 5°C. The best time to visit Ooty is between November and March. At this time you will be able to avoid the vacationing crowd. The nearest airport from Ooty is the Coimbatore airport which is at a distance of only 105 km. You can also get there by road as all the important cities of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Kerala are connected with Ooty.
