26 Jan 2015 - One of the most unforgettable days, I woke up with no plans for the day and ended up making an exciting road trip from the "Manchester of South India" (Coimbatore) to the Queen of Hill Stations (Ooty/ Udhagamandalam) which is approximately 100 km from Coimbatore.

Ooty, one of non-polluted towns with the highest mountains (Doddabetta - 8,650 feet) in India. Riding through those beautiful ghats and tea estates was an amazing feel - INCREDIBLE NATURE!

I visited Impala Bakery to buy some freshly baked varkeys. I expressed my interest to visit their baking area, they were so happy to take me to their home, that is where they bake in a traditional wood fired ovens. All the members of their family welcomed me with so much warmth.

I bought some fresh carrots on my way back to Coimbatore

Things to try and buy in Ooty :

*Nilgiris Tea, spices and aromatic oils

*Farm fresh fruits and veggies

*Wood fire baked varkeys from a reliable bakery (I recommend Impala Bakery)

*Home-made chocolates (I recommend Modern Stores)

*Botanical seeds / plants
