We got up early in the morning and enjoyed some morning tea in the garden. The weather was as its sublime best, cold and little foggy. We got ready in no time and had some breakfast so that we can go out and explore the city centre. We left the guest house in the afternoon and got ourselves a cab to go back to Madurai. This time we told our driver to go through Coonoor so that we could explore and discover its natural beauty. It is known for its tea gardens and sprawling grasslands. We did a small hike on a nearby mountain in Coonoor and had ur lunch in a small shack near by. It is always good to explore something new and I love exploring unexplored places . We left Coonoor in the afternoon for Madurai and reached back in the evening.
Money spent: 3500 Inr per person.
What to do: There are a lot of tourist attraction in Ooty and near by, so plan accordingly and cover the most. Tea gardens, Doddabetta, Lambs rock, Dolphin nose and toy train are among my favs.
Where to live: Try to find some good cottages with great views, I lived in the Army guest house definitely class apart, so must try if you can.
When to go: Whenever you can and when you have the time;), I went in september and the weather was blissful.
How to go: Ooty has got good connectivity and public transport facilities available. But I took a cab as it was convenient for all three of us and quiet cheap too.
