3.7
#1 of 16 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 gives a good view but is it worth riding on the terrible road to this place. Full of potholes and once you reach you heave a sigh of relief.  more »

  • It's a peak . Don't visit after 11-12 am as the traffic gets piled up. Roads are stiff, so only skilled driver should drive the car not safe for new drivers. On the way you see a tea shop HIGH HILL TEA that is must visit place. Yes there is extremely good. And by paying Rs 10 per person you can visit the tea garden behind it. Do park your vehicle carefully as you may obstruct the roads.
  • The view from here is quite good. More than the view, I would say I liked the ride. If you take your two wheeler, the ride would be awesome. I liked the ride here as the whether was too cold when I had been here the whole trip was awesome.but talking about the view point, I would rate it around 4/10.
  • Place is bit overcrowded but view is good. We can enjoy fog covered Mountain view from this place. Roads could have been bit better but considering it is hilly area and also water comes out in every corner of road it is bit difficult to maintain. Parking could have been maintained.
  • charming destination with beautiful views and climate is good. best place to relax and to walk and to enjoy the beauty of nature. scenic beauty.Fresh air and very good atmosphere. charming nature.Beautiful place to visit.
  • Awesome place for family outing.. Visit at least once in a lifetime.. Parking space available. Nice place to visit in any season.. Don't forget to take your DSLR

Where to stay in Ooty (Udhagamandalam)

An established tourism destination, Ooty and the countryside that surrounds the hill station offer plenty in the way of accommodations. Most major Indian hotel chains have opened up shop in town and lie dotted around the hilly terrain by the main roads, the more salubrious among them enjoying a little more space and better views of the surrounding area. Look at the residential areas for budget-friendly guesthouses, or head for the rural areas that encircle the town center to find a number of atmospheric rental properties built during the colonial era.
