    The name literally means Big Mountain, and rightly so. The gazibo offers a spectacular view of Ooty and Conoor and all the Nilgiri hills on all four directions. A very nice place to visit.

    It's a nicecplace to walk around. Very secluded and no activity. Best option is to stay in destiny farm stay hotel to access this lake.

    Numerous varieties of roses at full bloom in month of May. Very nice place to see different coloured roses with their name plates. A must visit place to witness a well maintained garden in the midst of the town.

    It is covered with the Avalanche tour. It is 2 om off track while going to Avalanche. It is a very pleasant place. A lovely lake surrounded by greenery. It is serene and peaceful and relaxing. Tourists are not allowed in Emerald dam, but one can enjoy the scenic lake.

    In the year 2009-10 and before when we visit this place their were no entry fee but now a days they charge ₹10/- per head. It’s okay at the end they offer nice tea ☕️ too😜. Now they have prepared good boards showing history and preparation procedure for tea which is very informative. Also chocolate making factory is also places side by. There one stop shop is a good concept. You can by tea coffee as well as ayurvedic medicine and natural beauty products from here

    It’s good tracking experience if you choose to walk or you can opt out car option too. Our hotel was nearby so we go by walking. When we reached Aarti was going on. Very nice place.

    Nice serene place and very well organized boat trips, there are 3 types,paddle, row or motorized, the lake and surroundings are clean,plus don't miss the thread gallery just opposite the lake,you will be surprised. Go a little early after breakfast, you can beat the crowds.

    Ooty has several gardens, this is one of the new ones. Everything is nice and shiny. Fun place for kids and adults to run around. They also seem to be making a sound and light show area although it is still under construction as of april 2022.

    If you want to enjoy a peaceful location, please visit this place. Small museum and hanging bridge are there to enjoy. This place is very near to city, but very calm and serene. Walking in the trails giving the feel of forest atmosphere. Had a nice tea in the canteen

    Nice fun time, we had one hour to kill therefore got in with super package. It was about 570 per person, lot of places to take photos some attractions feels rundown like 5DX (may need maintenance and cleaning). Main highlights are dinosaur park and camera museum, staff was amazing and we liked the place if they could only maintain a bit nicer would be amazing place. We enjoyed it and we suggest people to visit.
