Serene Pykara Falls In Ooty
My Review on trip to Ooty - The Beautiful Hill Station in Tamil Nadu
The latest destination I visited was Ooty. Ooty is a hill station in South Indian state of Tamil Nadu, nearly 565 kms. from Chennai.I had heard a lot about the scenic charm of Ooty and was quiet eager to take a trip to Ooty as soon as possible. And I must say, I was not disappointed a bit. It is a heaven place full of greenery & beauty of nature.!
Reaching Ooty Hill Station in South IndiaWe took the Nilgiri Express from Chennai to reach Mettupalayam. From there we took a toy train from Mettupalayam which takes 5 hours to reach Ooty. The toy train is a leisurely journey showing the beauty of the forests and tea gardens. It was a pleasant season in the months of April-May but it turned a little chilly as we move to altitudes.
The ResortWe stayed at a resort in the outskirts & not in the city as it made us come more closer to the nature. Our resort was beautifully placed on the steps of a hill which showed the tea cultivation around. As we entered the balcony, we really got swayed away by the beauty of the climate & nature around.
Ooty Must See Places to VisitThe Rose Garden was a real treat with its numerous species of roses and so was the government botanical garden with different species of trees brought from all over the world. The Ooty Lake was a picture postcard beauty that further strengthened our view that a trip to Ooty was all the efforts that we put in. Not to forget the tea gardens of Ooty. Roaming around we felt like we were taking a stroll in the paradise.
