Our resort ( Bower’s chalet) was a newly constructed property and was discovered in Booking.com. The resort was located in an isolated hill. We had to take a turn before crossing the 7th hair pin bend. Travelling amidst the tea plantation, vegetable plantation and what not, we followed google maps and finally reached our destination. Surrounded by greenery on all sides, this place was located faraway from the hustle and bustle of the city and it surely gave us a good feel to start our vacation with. The place was serene and peaceful and on reaching the caretaker at our chalet provided us a homely meal. What more could we have asked for.
After having our meal and freshening up a bit, we went on Ooty exploration mission. As it was 3 in the afternoon already, we could only cover Dodabetta peak and Tea museum on the first day. Dodabetta was jam packed with tourists ( as it was one of the peak seasons when we visited Ooty). The view from there is indeed breathtaking. We enjoyed a hot lemon tea served by a local tea seller, enjoying the beautiful view. After this we headed for the Tea museum. It was a good experience taking the museum tour for 10 bucks. They even served us sample tea and we were bound to buy the tea packets as the tea was amazing (now that is some good marketing strategy). They also sold some amazing Ooty chocolates ( prices are high but definitely worth it). Soon after this we headed back to our resort and relaxed in our cosy homely chalets.
