I am stunned by the beauty of a great scenic village resort town in our own Tamil Nadu State of India

Popularly known as Ooty, Udhamandalam was the summer capital of the British rulers in India. The misty blue haze of Nilgiris and the fragrant rain forests lure millions of tourists to Ooty every year. Situated at an altitude of 2268 metres above sea level, it was discovered in the early 18th Century. Snooker is said to have originated on the billiards table of the Ooty Club by an army officer - Neville Chamberlain.

The smaller hill resorts adjoining Ooty - Coonoor & Kotagiri have the same dewy fresh mornings and breezy calm evenings of Ooty. The botanical gardens established by the Marquis of Tweeddale in 1847, continues to be a major attraction.The Ooty flower show and the dog show are popular events held annually. Trout fishing is a popular sport at Avalanche, 24 kms away from Ooty. Other famous spots - Doddabetta, Lamb's rock. Pykara Lake. Accommodation is available in various categories from 5 star to budget hotels and dormitories, but rates vary during peak seasons(Mid May) /off / half seasons.
