Tucked away in the scenic forests of the Nilgiris, Kotagiri is the perfect alternative to escape the overcrowded lanes of Ooty. With breathtaking views and scenic tea plantations on all sides, this town is perfect for those seeking utmost tranquillity in the lap of nature. Believed to have the world’s second-best climate, it is perfect for a trip at any time of the year.

Aptly named Nilgiris Calling, this homestay is located amidst  dense forests. This hilly retreat run by a local family is an ideal place for a quick weekend getaway.

With two floors, two bedrooms and two bathrooms, it is spacious enough to host up to seven guests. Accompanied by a deck that gives you spectacular views and a dining area, you can spend your time watching surreal views and occasionally also witnessing wildlife such as the Indian Gaur and the Barking Deer.

Although the house has all the modern facilities including WiFi, a digital detox is much recommended while you take long walks enjoying spectacular waterfalls and cloud kissed mountains. Being the oldest hill station in the Nilgiris, Kotagiri also has a fascinating history for you to know more. From a museum to historic houses, there is a lot to learn during your stay here. Literally translating to the hills of the Kota tribes, the Toda Village at Ellada is also an amazing place to check out the vibrant culture of the local tribes and their way of living.

How to reach

Nearest Airport and Railway station is at Coimbatore (64 km). You can also take a scenic drive down from Ooty (31 km) or Coonoor (17 km).
