Ooty, the queen of hill stations and the capital of Nilgiris district, is one of the most popular destinations amongst travellers. Also known as Udhagamandalam and sometimes Ootacamund, it offers lofty mountains, dense forest, sprawling grasslands and miles and miles of tea gardens to greet the travellers. The blue mountains are the major responsible factor for this town’s popularity. Ooty is a haven for the seeker of sports, adventure, trekking, riding to fishing for trout and playing golf. A summer of peace and uncluttered cool days is what the Nilgiris offer, with their resonant echoes of a rich and tangible Dravidian culture.
