Visit to Kalhatti falls and Ooty.
Enroute to Ooty at a distance of 13km we visited Kalhatti falls. It's a 1km trial from the main road. It was worth visiting as we spent some peaceful time there listening to the soothing sound of the falls and chirping birds.
Later we went to Ooty city where we had lunch in the famous Shinkows Chinese restaurant in the Commissioner Road. It's a very old restaurant in ooty and it is believed that the utensils they use there were once imported from the China itself. Later we headed back to Bokkapuram after relishing a delicious non-veg meal.
