My Trip to Ooty - Day 3 - 101h Feb 2020

Day 3 was more adventurous since we visited the highest peak in South India.Do I need to say the name?


The highest peak in South India. This is located in Ooty. It is accessible only through Share Auto/Auto/Car/Jeep/2 Wheeler. Govt bus which goes to Kothagiri drops you in the bottom of the hill. You are not allowed to trek since it is a Reserve Forest. It is 2.5kms from the bottom.

Share jeeps are available there who would charge you ₹70 per person. They take upto 10 people at a time. 

They have a telescope on the top through which you can view the city. Entrance fee of ₹20 per person is charged (for adults). On the entrance, you could also see few shops which sells fruits & vegetables. The vegetable salad cup is surely something you wouldn’t want to miss.

Govt Rose Garden:

A must visit if you’re going to Ooty. Season to visit is between April to May. Otherwise the blooms are scarce.

I went during the off season but I was not disappointed because I could still spot lot of rose varieties.

Charges are ₹30 per person. They are open until 6pm. 

The garden is massive & has close to 5000 varieties of roses. They are divided into three terraces. You have lot of sceneries whet you get yourself clicked. Do not miss it.
