So called shooting spot

They told us that this is very busy and famous shooting spot in Ooty for some bollywood movies.We were expecting huge crowd but for our surprise we were the only group visiting that place. But weather was beautiful and atmosphere was before rain so was majestic and magical love, there are some place for clicking pics that was beautiful.

Not been till end point

This is said to be a famous shooting spot but when we reached we saw a huge crowd who were just wandering here and there. We found that it wasn't safe for us to go up till there as the crowd didn't seem to be good.

Picture perfect view

Absolutely stunning views all round. The viewpoint comes just few Kilometers after Ooty. The view is superb consisting of mountain, long view small houses, Greenery and Long view of Wild Animals. The greenery on one part looked like a green carpet and the village view on other part looks like dolls kept in sequence.

The backgrounds form the beautiful view

We went to see the film shooting spot near Ooty called sixth mile, it was a good ride thru pine trees. The Kamarajar dam is near by. The attraction of the place is rolling grass hills in green with the sky and mountains in the background forming a beautiful landscape just like in films. Horse riding is available for the brave hearted, they take you along a narrow sloping path to 3-4 spots where some films were shot, bit scary especially when the caretakers hands you the lagaam and you are on your own, god forbid, the horse is a gentle one and does not take off suddenly.
