Tourist Places and Things to do in Ooty

A trip to Ooty can be truly fulfilling as the hill station has everything a tourist can ask for. A leisurely boat-ride on Ooty Lake, trekking to Doddabetta Peak, taking a ride on the Nilgiri Mountain Railway, and capturing the beauty of Government Botanical Garden are some of the mandatory things to do when in the Queen of Hills. There are many other places to visit in Ooty that must be on everyone’s itinerary including Pykara Falls, Mariamman Temple, Kamraj Sagar Dam, and Tribal Museum. Don’t miss historical places such as St. Stephen’s Church and Stone House, and Droog Fort near Ooty.

Have the best dining experience in Ooty at cafes and restaurants like Sidewalk, Ooty Coffee House, Shinkows, Angara, Earl’s Secret and others. And for a glimpse of the lively nightlife of the hill town, pubs and bars such as Canterbury, Four Quarters, Fern Hill and Alto Espirito make great options. A food enthusiast would definitely love the homemade chocolates and cakes served at the landmark Kingstar Confectionery. Shopping for locally-grown tea is another thing that you shouldn’t miss.

Add a dose of adventure to the trip with a trekking expedition to the less-frequented places nearby. With so much to do, Ooty makes a perfect weekend getaway from bustling cities like Bangalore.
