Enjoy vast expanses of natural beauty in Ooty

Ooty, also called Udhagamandalam, is a well-known hill station in the South Indian state, Tamil Nadu. It is located at a distance of about 80 kilometres to the north of Coimbatore. This region was under the British rule towards the end of eighteenth century. Home to the amazing Nilgiri Mountain Railway, there are many fascinating places to be explored in and around the hill station. Owing to such beautiful spots, Ooty is known as the 'Queen of Hill Stations'.


Climatic conditions in Ooty show a stark contrast, when compared to most of the other regions of southern India. During the months of January and February, the weather gets quite chilly, but this hill station enjoys an immensely pleasant climate at other times. This is the reason why it is one of the most sought-after honeymoon destinations of India. Besides honeymooners, it is also visited by leisure tourists and adventure seekers.

Travellers visiting Ooty would need comfortable accommodations during their time spent in the hill station. Popular resorts in Ooty provide rooms and suites that are not only well-furnished, but are equipped with the latest facilities. Amenities like taxi services for sightseeing trips and airport transfers go a long way in making the stays of tourists truly pleasant and memorable.
