Chilling out in OOTY.....d journey continues

I hope you are ready to explore the chilling heaven. 
Since we had taken a scooty on rent, it provided us complete mobility to chill out. We had a wonderful time in Ooty enjoying all the delicacies it had to offer. And not to forget the wonderful Pizza at Dominos. So if you are pizza maniac like me, dont miss the hot and melting cheese pizza in the chilling evening while taking a walk on the cross cut road. 
Do look for the yummy momo shop which also serve delicious thukpa.

Places to visit:
Botanical garden: It is the primary tourist attraction in Ooty. Filled with greenery and different flowers and tree vegetation, this garden provides a beautiful view where you can enjoy the day and play games. The garden is at full bloom in the month of April – May. The garden has a 20 year old tree fossil which stands as the main attraction.

Rose garden in Ooty has terraces with rose tunnels, pergolas and bowers with rose creepers. The garden has the largest collection of roses with 3600 varieties of roses.

The Ooty Lake is beautifully spread for 2.75 kms in length in irregular “L” shape. The lake is surrounded with lofty eucalyptus trees and shrubs and boating in the calm water provides a scenic delight. Different types of boats are available at the boat house as per the number of people and preference. The lake and boat house have become the hub of entertainment for visitors.

Doddabetta peak is the highest peak in south India. It is 10 kms from Ooty. There is telescope house at the peak where people wait eagerly in queue to take a look. We also stood in the queue expecting a wow experience, but ended up laughing when saw through it. The view was set on the crowded street of Ooty market and you would have hardly a second to look at it and the person standing there will ask you to move.

Pykara Lake, amid the lush green valley surrounded by forests is a lovely getaway from Ooty. Don’t fail to visit the Pykara Lake as the isolated lake free from pollution and crowd gives ultimate comfort and peace to the soul.

Sightseeing in Ooty: 
The sightseeing in Ooty can fit in a two day itinerary or more luxuriously in three days. On the first day you can plan for Rose garden, Botanical garden and the Ooty Lake. All these are at the city centre so you won’t be spending too much time in travelling. Second day can be kept for Pykara Lake which is at around 35 kms from Ooty. The third day you can plan for Doddabetta peak. On the way to Doddabetta peak, you can also visit the tea factory where you can buy some flavorful tea to take home.

Shopping: Do not forget to take home the home made chocolates and range of tea with different flavors.  

Do plan to visit Ooty, if you have not been there yet and share your experience.
