Ooty and Coonor are the one the most picturesque hill stations of Souther India. These two hill stations are surrounded by Nilgiris. These are the most popular places to visit in Ooty & Coonor. Ooty is also known as “Queen of Western ghats".
Settled in the midst of Nilgiri hills, Ooty, otherwise called Udagamandalam, is a hill station in Tamil Nadu which fills in as a first class traveler objective. Once viewed as the mid year base camp of the East India Company, the Queen of the hills is a beautiful escape.
Dabbed with tea gardens, peaceful cascades, winding ghat sections, and enchanting architecture, Ooty is the place for everybody. Famous among couples and honeymooners, Ooty appeals its guests with the all encompassing perspectives on the Nilgiri mountains. The weather conditions is very wonderful at a mean of 15-20°C around the year, dropping to lows of 0°C during winter. Many parts of the hills are safeguarded as regular hold timberlands, and unique grants will be expected to camp in noncamp locales.
The Nilgiri mountain railroad is the steepest track in all of Asia. Recollect the hit melody 'Chaiyya' where Shahrukh Khan and Malaika Arora matching strides on top of a train? Recollect the stunning districts as the train chugged its direction across lavish vegetation? Indeed, that was the Nilgiri Mountain Railways, and the Nilgiri Mountains from the start.
The hilly region additionally houses more modest towns like Coonoor and Kotagiri. These more modest towns are a superior decision to visit and invest energy in, since they are outside of what might be expected, yet under one hour from Ooty. They partake in similar normal climes and costs are significantly less expensive.
Coonoor is one of the three Nilgiri hill stations - Ooty, Kotagiri and Coonoor. More modest and calmer than Ooty, it has a few awesome legacy lodgings and guesthouses, from which you can do the very same things (climb, visit tea manors, wonder about mountain sees) you would do from greater, more occupied Ooty. From upper Coonoor, you can peer down over an ocean of red-tile housetops to the inclines past and absorb the cool environment, calm climate and lovely landscape. Yet, you get nothing unless there are other options in clamoring lower Coonoor.
