Lush green mountains and plantations abound in Ooty. Spread over 36 sq. km, it’s 7350 feet above sea level. Vast plantation of eucalyptus, pine and wattle stretch between the few untouched meadows that remain of the pre British Ooty. No wonder, it’s the place to get away from it all. Here is where you can rewind, reboot and restart your life every season. With temperatures relatively consistent throughout the year, it’s the best summer retreat for anyone wanting to beat the summer heat. Enjoy!

LANDMARKS & MONUMENTS

COONOOR

At a slightly lower altitude (2000 metres), this is the second largest hill station in the Nilgiri Hills and is a small tea garden town where the weather remains pleasantly cool throughout the year. The place is perfect for trekking and picnicking, with grassy spots and spectacular views. It is famous for bird watching and birds such as vultures, eagles, owls, bulbuls, thrushes, bablers, larks, cuckoos and robins.

KANDAL CROSS SHRINE

A Roman Catholic Shrine, this is considered the Jerusalem of the East. Catholics consider the shrine as the ‘Calvary of Tamil Nadu’. Special Novena Prayers and Holy Masses are offered every Friday. The annual feast is held on 3rd MAY.

NILGIRIS LIBRARY

It is a treasure trove of precious documents, biographies and old books, many of them rare volumes on travel and Ooty. The library was begun as a public reading room and later built up as it stands today, in 1868. Today, it is run by a private committee.

OOTY CLUB

This club offers entertainment as well as information. It has a collection of albums of yellowing photographs, newspaper clippings and hand-drawn cards, among other things. The club building was originally the mansion of Sir William Rumbold, a wealthy businessman from Hyderabad, who built it in the 1820s. Regal, imposing and exclusive, the club is still maintained as it was in British time. The club is for members and their guests only.
