    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.

    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.

    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

    The garden is based on innovative concept and is ok for a quick visit.The process is not explained in detail.Only multiple flowers made of threads are kept inside.Boards for display do have some info.Can be clubbed with ooty lake visit hence does not take much time and is affordable to visit.
