This is among the few places I visited before I fell in love with travelling. Ooty is a 255km drive from Bengaluru. Bengaluru itself is a beautiful place and you don't need too much reasons to visit. What adds to the experience is this hill station. One can travel from their personal car or hire a car. Other than car, buses are also easily available.

Once you reach Ooty, it wont be a headache to find a good stay. There are plenty of good stays available near the main market in every budget. Same goes with the food. You will get almost every kind of food and South Indian dishes in abundance. The place feels pleasing with nights and early mornings being slightly on the cooler side. This is what I experienced during early summers. Keep in my mind not to visit this place during peak season as it gets really crowded.

Places to visit in Ooty -:

# Ooty Lake along with other beautiful lakes is a must visit if you would like to relax and have a joyful time with your family. Enjoy boating here looking to the beautiful scenes around.
