One the day 2, we some up to catch some beautiful scenery of OOTY from our room balcony, as the hotel we stayed in was at higher elevation than other hotels.
Our first visit was to the "OOTY Botanical Garden", it's a good place to start the day filled with greenery and variety of trees and plants.
Then we headed towards Pykara lake for boating, on the way we visited ooty lake which was filled with people, next it was a 20km journey through nilgiris to pykara lake, but once we reached the lake it was all worth it, the view of the lake from boat was nothing but hills and forest around us. There are 3 boating options at the lake
1. 10 people slow boat
2. 8 people fast boat (we went in this one)
3. 3 person speed boat which was awesome as it skips through water at very high speed.
It was 3 o'clock, when we left the lake, we had lunch on the way and then visited the 9th mile shooting spot on the way back to ooty, which is a lush green grass hill that has refreshing breeze all the time, there were also horses for people who can't climb the hill.
We also spent time in the pine forest which was also on the way to OOTY.
By the time we reached OOTY it was nearly 8 o'clock, so we had dinner and went back to room.
Wherever you go around OOTY, we wanted to spend even more time on the spot and that was work it as the weather was also great.
