Second heaven on earth

There is nothing to do in Kotagiri except to let your soul wander. My journey from Ooty to Kotagiri, which is hardly 33 km, was done in a local rick and I couldn't have asked for more.

Kotagiri is a small village nestled between Ooty & Coonoor and many people miss this heavenly destination has it is still untouched by tourists which has only increased its appeal. We (3 of us) took an auto rickshaw from Ooty to Kotagiri and the scenic views are indescribable with steep winding roads, pine trees on both sides and an awesome weather. After some since it was physically challenging to get the rick up the steep hill we offered to get off and walk along and we felt we were straight out of a movie scene with mist, pine trees and steep road ahead of us. The place where we stayed, Green Nest Resorts, was far flung from the city and was nestled among a sea of tea plantations. The entire scenario there was soothing to the eyes, heart, mind and soul.

Since we arrived well past lunch time we didn't have the luxury of ordering what we wanted but that turned out to be a blessing in disguise as we had one of the most sumptuous South Indian meal ever!

The entire evening was spent just wandering among the rows and rows of tea gardens and taking in the fresh air. Dinner was served on time and by now we realized that they serve really yummy food. Next morning we took a small trek on the nearby hills to get a 360 degree view of the surroundings which are breathtakingly beautiful with trees and flowers that belong to another world!

Overall, this trip was a soothing yet exciting trip for the soul. Highly recommended!

Awesome place to be at

It was an awesome place to be away from work & city life. Driving up the hill to reach our destination was worth. Awesome weather and lovely residents who were always there to help us at any point of the day. Memorable time spent with my hubby and would love to go back to this small hill station.
