Doddabetta Peak, Ooty (Udhagamandalam)

3.7
#1 of 18 in Nature in Ooty (Udhagamandalam)
Soak up the views from the highest point of the Nilgiri mountain range at Doddabetta Peak. At a height of 2,637 m (8,650 ft), the peak looks out across Ooty and, on very clear days, ensures vistas of the distant plains of Coimbatore. Hike or take a taxi to the top, where an observatory provides two viewing stations for the public. Plan to visit early to avoid long queues along the road.

  • It's a nice view from the top of the hill specially from glass house. kids play items are there. small street shops on the way to hill top.restricted area if you cross, a dense forest, can go for trekking but is dangerous so please avoid.
  • A must watch at least once in your life. Try to go in winter than in summer. Although the crowds are high in summer, the best time to watch this place is winter. You wouldn't forget that silver lining in your life if you are a first time watcher of such a pleasant scenery. Food options are minimum. There are some stalls along the way where you can buy the same regular stuff which you can buy even in your town. If you are a fan of essential oils try the stall near Car parking. It is a stall which is in association with TN Govt. Prices are much cheaper than other stalls in ooty.
  • It's just a peak with an amazing view. There's nothing else to do here. The ride to visit it is long but you can hardly spend half hour here. Good place to click pictures. There are photographers who will click and give you one minute photographs. Stalls to eat and buy stuff. Not much to do.
  • A place to visit atleast once in your life time. The view from the telescope was awesome. My words can't describe the place you better go there and share your experience......
  • I visited this beautiful peak in 1989 first. It was not too developed but pristine . Next visit was in 2015. Very pleasant to see the market, the fiod stalls, the garden & viewing halls nicely planned . Want to go again, my legs permitting
