It is always better to get familiar with the city first and what's better than talking to the localites. In this process we met an auto uncle who had guided us through the tourist spots and luckily him understanding Telugu has helped us in conveying what we wanted. This auto uncle's family kind of runs a mini business where in one of his sons runs a car rental service in and around Ooty and Coonoor. They even have a household factory for tea and handmade chocolates.
We booked a room at Lebon Residency on OYO, which was in FunCity, 3kms from the bus stand. The auto uncle's son has helped us in getting a good deal where we were able to hire a car for 2 days at 4000 rupees...We freshen up, had breakfast and by that time, the car is at our hotel. It was about 12PM by the time we got ready and we started our journey to Coonoor as it relatively has less places to offer when compared to Ooty and Pykara.
And we started our journey to Coonoor.....the first stop is at Valley View Point, from where you can see the entire city of Ooty.. The vibes of the song "Chal Chaiyya Chaiyya" flows through this place.
