Ooty the Queen of Hills

Ooty the queen of hills , Udhagamandalam, Ootacamund – Call it by any name, itโ€™s the queen of hill stations. You should visit this place once in your life time. Such a serene and beautiful place it is. We started from Bangalore by car on Friday early morning by 6:30 and reached there by 1 pm. It was in mid July, but we all were shivering like anything (we girls know how to do overacting ๐Ÿ˜‰ ). The chill that ran through our body was a new kind of experience. Words are not sufficient to describe how beautiful Ooty is. The landscapes, the lake, the climate, the fresh vegetables everything is justย mind blowing.

At first, we went to Tibetan market Woolen shops, antique shops, home made chocolates; you ask anything you get it there. The smell of freshly baked corn was flavoring the surroundings. Botanical garden famous for its annual summer flower show is just besides the Tibetan market. A well maintained 22 acre garden was beaming with visitors. There were around thousand different species of shrubs, ferns, trees, herbal and bonsai plants. If you are into gardening, you will adore this place.

The next day, early morning, we went to Pykara Dam. There again, we were awe struck with the natureโ€™s art. The reservoir and its stream is a picture perfect place. We made the moment memorable by the numerous picsย shot over there. So without much delayย we all started to give our best shot. They also provide boating facilities. Then we went to 7th mile, itโ€™s also a shooting spot, a highland covered with lush green grass, and it was way too windy out there. We hardly could open our eyes. My frizzy hair went mad.ย After we got down from there; we all were busy fixing our tangled hair ๐Ÿ˜›1-pykara

From there, we went to Doddabetta peak (highest peak in South India). Honestly, I couldn’t see who was standing few steps ahead of me. It was very foggy. It is situated at a highest of 2,637 meters but as it was covered with fog, we shouldn’t see the low land properly.

The next day, we went to Ooty railway station. The Nilgiri Mountain Railway train was the cutest train that I have ever seen; it has been added to the UNESCO Worldย  Heritage site in 2005. It was so much fun to travel in it. Our journey from Ooty to Conoor and back was an awesome experience. You can experience the natural beauty of Ooty and Nilgiris while travelling in it. How blessed is ooty to get such a priceless landscape. I wish I could do chayya chayya on this train, but my Sharukh Khan didnโ€™t allow ๐Ÿ˜› . Every place in Ooty takes the credit of being a location for a film song or a scene.

There are a lot more to explore in ooty, but we purposely left it out for our next visit. Donโ€™t forget to buy homemade chocolates and flavored tea.

OOTY โ€“ she will charm you by her beauty.
