The day started with vacating our hotel and driving to Doddabetta Peak (another view point)to watch the sunrise, but to our disappointment it opens only around 7 - 8am. We waited there for an hour or so and reached the peak, but if you ask me was it worth the wait, I would say no. We felt it was same as Kodanadu from the previous day but a bit bigger. If we could have watched the sunrise from the peak my opinion might have been different. Enroute Avalanche lake, one would come across the famout Good Sheperd Internation School, one of the famous ones in India. It was quite a sight. I had heard a lot about this institution. The lake itself is surrounded with pine trees and lush green pastures. We spent few hours near the lake watching how people enjoy themselves leaving all their worries behind. When one is visiting Avalanche lake, then the next obvious destination would be the Emerald lake which only few kilometers away. After spending few more hours near both the lakes, we visited the famous Ooty botanical gardens. The gardens is quite different from what I have been to before. There were so many exotic flowers, there were people coming just to spend some quality time with their loved ones, there were children playing around. One could see a variety of people doing a variety of stuffs. That was all this is about, gardens is not only about exotic flowers but also about the other activities happening around. It was already late night by the time we got back to our hotel. After having a heavy dinner we all had a good night sleep.
