After Botanical Garden....we did souvenir shopping and that was the end of our memorable trip to the Queen of Niligiris..
HOW TO REACH OOTY:
Approximately 85 km away, Coimbatore Airport is the closest airport to Ooty.
An amazing way of reaching Ooty is by the well-maintained state and national highways. TNSTC buses along with some private buses connect Ooty with major neighbouring cities like Bangalore, Chennai and Mysore.
Mettupalayam, 40 km from Ooty, is the nearest railhead serving this hill station. Several trains are available from nearby cities like Chennai, Coimbatore, Mysore and Bangalore for Mettupalayam. Once you reach the railway station, you can hire private cabs or avail bus services to reach Ooty. Another exciting way of getting to Ooty is by boarding the heritage Niligiri mountain toy train.
