3 out of 67 attractions in Ooty

Botanical Gardens

Home to more than 650 species of plants and herbs, this is a prime attraction in the Queen of Hill Stations which is Ooty. There are a number of rare species of plants and herbs here along with a number of varieties of flowers. The main attraction here is the monkey's puzzle tree which has a strange shape and the name is given because even monkeys fail to climb this tree. There is also a paper bark tree and also a fossilized tree. The other sections of this garden are the Lower Garden, New Garden, Italian Garden, Fountain Terrace, conservatories and fountains. The Government also organizes a check everyday via the Horticultural Department of Tamil Nadu. The Summer Festival is a sight to behold out here.

Next place we visit in Ooty is Botanical Garden. While travelling to Botanical Garden, we visited a tea factory and bought tea packets and chocolates for family and office mates. In winter, botanical garden is totally covered with flora. Botanical Garden is best place to get some good pictures. We have few clicks which are still part of my best 2018 collection. As we are engineer, we have no idea what is the name of plants of which I will upload pic below. We clicked photos of few innocent too. At evening, we had boat riding in Ooty lake.
