One of the best hill stations I've ever visited. I started from Bangalore by bus and going through the Jungles was so amazing experience (though, couldn't see any wild animal except deer). Ooty is famous for its home-made chocolates and tea gardens. Being a coffee lover, I wasn't much excited about tea factory, but my friend insisted me and when I tasted the tea there (you can get as much as you want for free), I was like ye toh ghar ki chai h. The fresh & amazing blend of chaipatti makes it so tasty. And you even get to taste a spoon of hot chocolate at the same place. But, the sad part is every tourist place closes by 6:00 PM. The only thing to do in the evening is shopping. I ate chicken momos in the streets of charing cross market, and I would say it's a must try.
