A very beautiful spot in Ooty

If you drive to that location, this will really test your driving skills.There is lots of space to park vehicles, but the crowd will make you sweat before you reach there. Its good to go there around early morning or late evening so that you can feel the cold and also the beauty of the surroundings. Taking small kids is not that wise unless they are really wool cushioned.
