There are certain activities that are almost indispensable for you when you go visiting in this beautiful city of the hills. If you miss even a single one, you may regret it for days later. So, make a list of them in advance.

  • The months between October and June are seen as an apt time to visit Ooty. However, these months are mostly cold (though still beautiful) and sometimes the mountain-peaks may be capped with snow, a sight that can be enjoyed and captured on camera. Try adventure sports like trekking.
  • Visit the most prominent museum here-Wax World, which is a waxen storehouse of Indian history and the great personalities that shaped it. The museum will especially turn out to be a treasure for those who are inclined towards arts and crafts.
  • Visit the Ooty Lake or the Pykara Lake if you are fond of adventures like boating and mountain ranges like Doddabetta Peak if trekking is your interest.
  • Ooty is especially famous for its flowers. It is the largest producer of roses in the country. Do visit the Ooty Rose Garden.
  • If you happen to be a wildlife enthusiast, you should explore a number of species of flora and fauna at Mukerti National Lake and Sanctuary Avalanche.
    Your interest in horticulture may be fulfilled at the
    Ooty Botanical Gardens.
  • Check out Ooty's famous racecourse. The months between April and June are rife with activity because of horse-races happening here which attract a lot of local as well as tourists' attention.
  • Christian credentials of Ooty cannot be denied. If you are fond of masses or the church bells, do pay a visit to St. Stephen's Chuch and Holy Trinity Church.
  • Ooty is a city of festivities. The Annual Flower Show and the The Tea and Tourism festival are the two major events in Ooty. Plan your trip according to the occurrence of these.

Now that all has been more or less told in terms of your activities in Ooty, you need not wait any further. Set out for the Queen of Hills soon.
