Avalanche Lake: One Of The Popular Ooty Attractions

Ooty has become one of the most famous hill stations in India over the years, and is visited by plenty of leisure tourists and honeymooners every year. It is located in the Nilgiri district of the Indian state, Tamil Nadu. While there is no dearth of interesting places to visit in Ooty for tourists, they would certainly find Avalanche Lake to be truly amazing and worth visiting. It is about 28 kilometres away from the hill station and derives its name from a massive land slide that took place in this region during the early nineteenth century.

It is one of the important Ooty tourist attractions on the list of places that visitors should never miss. People touring the Avalanche Lake can walk through the winding paths, enjoying beautiful views on their way. They can also indulge in some exciting activities like fishing and rafting. Many of the tourists like to camp near the lake by pitching their tents and spreading out their campsite accessories. Hilly areas of the Upper Bhavani are the ideal places for trekking enthusiasts to have a wonderful time.

Both international and domestic tourists travelling by air can get to Ooty easily from the Coimbatore International Airport. Tourists who prefer to travel by train for reaching Ooty would have greater convenience in getting to the hill station from Udhagamandalam Railway Station. Excellent connectivity by road helps travellers in reaching the hotel or resort where they have booked a stay. Tourists who are concerned about limited finances can book their accommodation in a budget resort in Ooty for greater savings during the trip. While these resorts provide a stay at lower prices, they do not compromise on the standard of facilities available in their rooms and the quality of services. .
