When it comes to hill stations, Ooty is pure royalty. Nicknamed the ‘Queen of the Hills’ by its locals, Ooty was the summer capital of the Madras Presidency and is a cool, green paradise perfect for a vacation away from the city. Located 86 km North of Coimbatore and 128 km South of Mysore, Ooty has mild conditions and has an air of spring about it throughout the year.  

Decorated with greenery, misty mountains, azure lakes that glisten in the sunlight and grassy meadows, sightseeing in Ooty is a fiesta of the best nature has to offer. Having a picnic at the exquisite Emerald Lake or strolling through the Botanical Gardens of Ooty that is filled with blooming flowers gives you a rush of pleasure and memories to last a lifetime.  

Sightseeing in Ooty is incomplete without a visit to its gorgeous, quaint town. The tea factory perfumes the air with the fragrance of fresh tea leaves and sipping on fresh tea in the outdoors is a treat that can be only found here. For trekkers, sightseeing in Ooty involves dropping by Doddabetta Peak, Avalanche Lake, Pykara River and Ooty Lake. You can even boat across the shimmering waters of Ooty Lake as it offers boating facilities and hosts boat races during May.
