Ooty, short for Ootacamund (an anglicized name for Udhagamandalam), is a popular hill station in the state of Tamil Nadu in Southern India. It is located 80 km north of Coimbatore. Ooty is situated at an elevation of 2240 m (7,347 feet) above sea level in the Nilgiri mountain range. Ooty is known for its extraordinary scenic beauty and salubrious climate amidst the “Nilgiris” or “Blue Mountains”. Ooty is the only hill station in India, which attracts visitors during all seasons. It has earned the epithet of the “all-seasons -hill resort” and the “queen of hill stations”.
It was my second trip after Nainital. In the whole trip I have visited many places and made it the longest trip of my life till now. In this trip I have travelled more than 6000 kms in 10 days.
