Located in the Western Ghats at a height of 2,240m, Udhagamandalam (also called Ooty), called the Queen of Hill Stations, is one of the most popular hill stations in India, known for its salubrious climate and breathtaking natural beauty. Nature has been generous with the region, which is by far the most beautiful in the state. Apart from coffee and tea plantations, trees like conifers, eucalyptus, pine and wattle dot the hillside. Summer temperature is rarely higher than 25° C with a minimum of 10°C and winter is distinctly cooler with a high of 21°C and a low of 5°C. Coonoor (19 Kms from Ooty) and Kothagiri (31 Kms from Ooty) are the other hill stations of the district. The Nilgiris is India’s first biosphere and has been declared as one of the 14 ‘hot-spots’ of the world because of its unique bio-diversity. The Nigiris presents a truly breath taking kaleidoscope of visual treats and soul stirring experience.
Ooty (Ootacamund), the queen of southern hills, nestled in the Nilgiri Hills is a trekker’s paradise; offering several trek routes that vary in distance, altitudes and terrain. For the romantics among you, there is no better place to reignite those sparks as you serenade your partner amidst the gentle hill slopes and wild flowers. Cardamom and tea plantations, and huge eucalyptus forests are in plenty. Enjoy the mountain trails on ponies or go boating on the famous Ooty Lake. Our Concierge is always on hand to assist you in planning your excursions, arranging for transportation and supplying you with all the information you need for a fun-filled holiday in the hills.
