Ooty Tourism Holiday Packages

Coined as "Queen of Hill Stations" by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, Ooty's beautiful landscape and unique biodiversity make it a must-visit tourist destination. Picturesque valleys, tea and coffee plantations, coniferous and eucalyptus trees dot the varied terrain of this peaceful hill station. Hidden from the southern kingdoms of India for a long time, it was finally brought into limelight by its discovery by the British in the 1800s who played a vital role in introducing modern amenities like railway tracks in the area. Today, Ooty tourism has grown exponentially and the town has become one of the most sought after holiday spots in the country.Ooty is a vibrant mixed bag of various attractions pertaining to all kinds of tourists. With our Ooty tourism packages, you can enthrall your senses in this enchanting land which sports a never-ending list of jaw-dropping natural marvels. Start with the Government Botanical Park which is home to rare tree species like the Cork tree, which is probably the only such tree species in the world. The park also houses a 20 million year old fossilised tree and many kinds of ferns and orchids. Another botanical marvel is the Rose Garden where you can visit the Nila Maadam and adore the spectacular view of the complete garden which serves as a massive 4 hectare thriving ground to 20,000 rose plants with 2241 varieties. Ooty's tranquil scenery does not end here. The surrounding greenery, open blue skies and the placid waters of the famed Ooty Lake make it a perfect site for a blissful boat ride. During the month of May, the lake serves as a ground for festivals where boating races and pageantry contests take place. The lake is also close to the Ooty Deer Park, a remarkable animal park where you can witness the wild fauna of the Nilgiri region in its nearly natural habitat.The beauty of the Nilgiri range extends far beyond the town of Ooty. Among the nearby places, the Doddabetta peak holds a different stature altogether. Literally meaning 'big mountain', it is the highest mountain in the entire Nilgiri range. Located at 2634 meters above sea level, the peak offers a striking view of the valley below. If you are lucky enough to visit Doddabetta on a clear day, you can even see the horizon extending till the plains of Coimbatore and even the flat highlands of Mysore. There is even a telescope observatory operated by the Tamil Nadu Tourism Development Corporation which offers better zoomed in views of the nearby areas. The trek to the top is moderately easy and should not be a challenge to most travellers.Other than the Doddabetta, the neighbouring region of Ooty is home to a number of majestic waterfalls as well. Situated 13 kilometers away from the town on the Ooty – Mysore Kalhatty Ghat Road, you can visit the Kalhatti Falls which adds its own charm to the surrounding greenery with its pure milky water falling from a height of 100 feet. Wildlife lovers are in for luck as this area also serves as a natural habitat to various species of fauna like panthers, bisons, wild buffaloes, wild dogs, spotted deers and many birds. For a more up close look at the wildlife found in the Nilgiris, the Mudumalai Wildlife Sanctuary is worthy spot. This historical park is the first sanctuary to be established in the country and is located at the joining point of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Kerala. The dense tropical forest cover consisting of teak, evergreen, and deciduous trees along with grassy marshes block out the mid-day sun, covering the area in a surreal stillness which brings you as close to nature as you can get. You can further ameliorate your trip here by taking an elephant safari and observing the native wildlife here consisting of Tigers, Panthers, Barking Deer, Hornbills, Porcupines etc.Apart from the town of Ooty itself, you can also visit the smaller town of Coonoor, located only 17 kms from the former. The town has a number of viewpoints like the eponymously named Dolphin’s Nose which provides you an unforgettable view of the Catherine Falls. Another memorable viewpoint is the Lady Canning’s Seat which overlooks a dazzling sight of many tea and coffee estates. Other viewpoints like the Lamb’s Rock, the Lampton’s Peak and even the town of Mettupalayam can be seen from the Lady Canning’s Seat making it probably the most admirable viewpoints in the Nilgiris. As mentioned earlier, the list of attractions in the Nilgiris is unending and Ooty surely takes the crown jewel with so many magnificent tourist spots in and around it. With our Ooty tourism packages you can surely have a taste of these exotic wonders. They will ensure you that you get the maximum out of your vacation and enjoy a wholesome holiday experience in the magical land of Ooty.
