The hill resort of Ooty, known as the Queen of Hill Stations, sits high in the Nilgiri mountain range of Southern India. Its setting among lush greenery and comfortable temperatures has made it quite the destination for travelers. Travelers here find themselves more so staying within an attraction than near one.
The experiences offered by Ooty capitalize on the area’s natural elements. From gardens to mountain ranges, the bio-diversity of the region has made it one of the world’s hotspots. Tea and coffee plantations make for picturesque landscapes dotted with conifers and eucalyptus trees. Hiking and horseback riding
are activities that thrive as they offer the best way to experience the surroundings. Other than the likes of plantations and cabbage farms, the Botanical Gardens
is very popular with more than 150 years of history and hundreds of species of plants and trees.
Outside the purely natural attractions, there is the Annamalai Temple which offers excellent panoramic views and a bit of history. Wax World
offers an experience unlike any other wax house, and shopping at Green Shop provides a chance to pick up excellent handicrafts and products. Be sure to check out the interactive map of Ooty for information on hotel locations, attractions, and must-see destinations.
