Day 1

This one is my first story on Tripoto and I am very excited to explain about my travelling story. Well we are three friends (In Spanish 'Tres Amigos') promised each other in 2010 that after getting in professional life, we will go to trip together. So we planned for Mysore - Ooty. You will get more stories on Tripoto only with this title “Tres Amigos @” with our travel theme of the year(In 2018 we had theme 'Lakes & Palaces'). We already booked a cab by contacting one of travel agent in Mysore for 3 days as our planned trip. That package were cost us for 4000/- per head including travelling and staying in Hotel at Ooty and Mysore. We reached to Mysore from Bangalore via Train. There are much frequency for Bangalore-Mysore. After coming back to Hotel “Royal Palace Hotel” in Mysore at morning, we get fresh and ready to move out for Chamundeshwari Temple.

After reaching at Chamundeshwari Temple we directly went for photo shoot only because of lot of crowd in temple. But that place is the best one for street photography. There is one another spot where one scene of “Rab ne bana di jodi” were shoot, when SRK proposed to Anushka by switching off that city lights.

City Palace of Mysore

Our journey end in Mysore with the most valuable thing of Mysore and that is City Palace of Mysore. While travelling to City Palace, we visited Sand Museum, Wax Museum and Horror room too. But those places are not much impressive, so I will not mention anything about this places in my story. The time when we reached to City Palace, we have a jaw drop and together we said 'Aww... What a place'. We collected ticket from the counter and ran to see royal things of Palace. If you want to see real beauty of this Palace, then visit Mysore at the time of Dassehra- an Indian Festival normally comes in Sept-October.

First place we visit after completing hotel check-in around 9:00 AM is Doddabetta- tallest hill of Tamilnadu. And there surprisingly we met our college friend who came from Kerala to visit Ooty.

Botanical Garden, Ooty

Next place we visit in Ooty is Botanical Garden. While travelling to Botanical Garden, we visited a tea factory and bought tea packets and chocolates for family and office mates. In winter, botanical garden is totally covered with flora. Botanical Garden is best place to get some good pictures. We have few clicks which are still part of my best 2018 collection. As we are engineer, we have no idea what is the name of plants of which I will upload pic below. We clicked photos of few innocent too. At evening, we had boat riding in Ooty lake.

Avalanche Lake, Ooty

Day 3

Last place we visited in Ooty in next morning i.e., on Day 3 is Avalanche Lake. While travelling to Avalanche lake, there is another place Needle view point which is the most dangerous point.
