Other than this, we did boating in Ooty lake, though Pykara lake is one of the nicest place for boating too when in Ooty. We booked a Hotel called Hotel Lakeview, hardly 500 m from Ooty lake.
As they refer Ooty as the Queen of hills, this place will not disappoint the first time travellers. If you plan for three days, you will definitely enjoy it in the midst of misty clouds, light drizzles, and a place far away from the hustles of the city. Ending this blog with a cliche line "Follow the path, not the destination".
