We also visited the photo gallery at the bus drop point that provides information on various bird and flower species of the National park along with the Nilgiri Tour. Our next destination was Mattupetty Dam and lake and on the way we stopped at a place named photo point. Photo Point is a picturesque location by the roadside where you can take pictures with widespread tea plantations having symmetrically lined oak trees in between and a beautiful green mountain as the backdrop. When you see the pic, you would know why it is called Photo Point. Mattupetty is a huge lake with very scenic surrounding of mist clad hills and thick green forest. We enjoyed the captivating landscape standing by the lake side for a while and went for a speedboat ride on the deep green water of the lake with thick green forest at both sides. Even though the speedboat ride was a little scary, it was thrilling too as the adept boat driver took a few sharp turns showing his stuntman skills.
