Ooty is one of the most charming hill stations in the world. It is exquisite and scintillating in terms of the panorama it offers. Even the Ooty hotels have those scenic windows from which the view is just fascinating. Primarily, it is a hill station in South India. But there is more to it than what meets the eye! Ooty is also the nature’s basket in which nature keeps some of its sweetest fruits. The flora and fauna existing in this part of India is very pristine and heart-winning. There is also a touch of quaintness with attractions like the toy train that chug along the valleys taking you to neighboring sites like Coonoor.
Here are some of the top sightseeing places you must visit in Ooty:
i. Ooty Lake: Ooty Lake is a major stopover for a picnic and a family get-together. If you are looking for a special outing beside a lake with your dear ones, then this spot offers you an idyllic locale. The children have a very special time here along with the adults. It is a lovely experience to boat on this lake. The water is very inviting and tranquil, and there is a huge canopy of green trees surrounding the whole place. Eucalyptus can be found in abundance on the shores. Fishing or angling is another popular sport which tourists love to try.
ii. Dodabetta Peak: Dodabetta Peak is the highest peak in Ooty and gives an unforgettable view of the sunrise and sunset. In the absence of fog and clouds, one can see even the furthest towns and mountains easily. Do not forget to take your binoculars and cameras when you head to this peak.
iii. Emerald Lake: If you love lakes and Ooty Lake has made you beg for more, then this place will be your great getaway. Emerald Lake is picturesque and green. In terms of beauty, it is perhaps a bit more ethereal than the Ooty Lake. Its isolation also adds to its mystical thrill.
