Visit with family

Not well maintained the place. Expectation was little high however you won't get anything as per the expectations. As these guys are charging money for everything but not doing anything like the road conditions are very very bad.At least they could improve on the road quality and the surrounding inside the peak

Just another point

Nothing so worth noting except for scenary. All of ooty has it so nothing special. Nothing so scenic to make you say wow. Fees was the least as compared to Lamb's park, Sims rock, and Ooty park. Large family can spend time here as a picnic spot. Monkey's are not there unlike other place in conoor which makes the visit scary experience

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
