Government Toilet in doddabetta peak

Very worst experience government toilet was not clean, hygiene and didn't had water facility very badly maintained. Feel ashame about our tamilnadu government carelessness in front of foreigners and other state people's. Atleast private bathrooms can be maintained in chargeable basis.

Must visit place in Ooty

Its a must visit place in Ooty n Nilgiris, You feel that u are in between cloud, the weather is too cold n clean that you will love it, n its on the top of mountain. The parking area is at short distance from rhis peak. We had to walk or climb the stairs. This place is not far off from Botanical Garden.

Breathtaking Views!

Its the highest Orak of South India, It attracts lots of tourists so it is a crowded place. Views are amazing. It is very good place but one need to walk on stone studded path

Highest Peak of South India

This peak is the highest peak of South India and provides beautiful views of the valleys. Fresh carrots, beet are available around the corner where locals display their catch. Lip smacking chaats are also available and other local stationary products for visitors to buy. The place is half covered in clouds and quite mesmerising. It's cold out there during the morning and advised to carry a light jacket.
