I have visited with my family in june 2018. Whether of Ooty is pleasant. Start your journey from Mysore in morning. In the way you passing through bandipur tiger reserve. You can go for tiger safari. Timings are in morning 6 to 8 and in afternoon 3-5. But I suggest need not to go for safari bacuse when you passes through bandipur you can see dear, elephant and may be other animals also. If you have not hired any taxi, can opt for buses. These are very good in speed as well as comfort. Even in Ooty loacl day tour taxi Auto and mini buses are also available with a small cost of may be 300 per person in Ooty try to get hotel near chairing cross it is the main market. Main places of attraction are botanical garden, Rose garden. Dodabetta highest view point of Ooty, Ooty lake and boat house, thread park Conoor is also a place around 20 km from Ooty on coiambtore road. Where you can visit dolphins nose( a view point), Lim's rock both are 12 km from City on the same way. On the way you can also visit tea garden and factory. Chocolate factory also is there. One water fall you can also veiw from dolphins nose on the way to Mysore you can also visit pine Forest, 9th mile a shooting point, pykara boat house (10 to5) and pykara fall(waste of time & energy) and again madumali and bandipur century if whether permit and one love to drive bikes are also available on rent. They charge 500 to 1000 for 12 hrs. I have opted for that a my experience was amazing. If you love nature please choose for bike it also cost effective so many options for food is available and if you are vegetarian pankaj bhojnalaya and ab+ is available at charring cross. One veg restaurant is also available at pykara water fall. In Ooty boat house restaurant is very good hope this review is helpful for you. You can also contact me on 9425312972 for more help.

"Not worth for money."

  • 6.0/7

We went as a family from Chennai to Coimbatore in Indigo. Then a car from Coimbatore to Ooty. We stayed in same hotel for 3 days (The Majestic Crown) which was overrated for its poor quality and it was costly too. We visited many places in Ooty for sightseeing which was arranged by the hotel itself. Per person 250rs to Ooty-Coonoor sightseeing package.

While visiting Avalanche make sure the exact time of Mazda Vehicles. Here in the forest dept ticket counter the clerk is smart to manipulate your queue order, be alert.

It was a nice experience to get away from the heat of Delhi and monotonous stay in Bangalore. Ooty was comparatively cool place for a retreat. Stay and sightseeing was a nice experience. Could see a lot of lush green hills and a lot of huge trees, apart from breath taking tea gardens. To sum up it was a nice get away.

Best place for relaxing. Botanical garden's flowershow is amazing. In Rose garden, you will atleast need 8 gb space in your card. Holes are good and nonveg like chicken, fish available.
