Hill | Boating | Nature | Mountain

HolidayIQ Reviewer Aparna Bhaduri adds, “Ooty starts seeping in slowly, as you drive past the Mudumalai sanctuary (if you are driving down from Bangalore), and by the time the car stops in front of your hotel gate, you are already hooked to the smells of eucalyptus, the sound of bird chirping and the misty freshness of the air. It is a small place, full of charming British styled houses and bungalows, tea gardens, schools and parks. There is a small town centre, roads to walk on and explore and trips to be made to nearby scenic places.” Read Full Review

Away from the crowded Munnar one can relax and spend a day there. Only 4x4 vehicles could travel through the tea estate. Kolukkumalai is situated in Tamil Nadu, but motor-able road to Kolukkumalai is available only from Kerala. ” Read Full Review

If you go further you go to other Elephant Head point but since we were standing on the Elephant Head probably we could not spot the Elephant Head.
