If all the sites of tourist interest have already been visited, you need not go back and sit idle in your hotel. We give you a list of some sites that happen to be around Ooty and hold great relevance in terms of tourism.

  • Pykara Lake and Pykara Falls
    Pykara lake and Pykara falls are located very close to Mudumalai, on the way to Ooty to Bangalore. The lake is ideal for boating and its enthralling beauty and tranquil grandeur are simply a sight you long for when dealing with the hustle and bustle of city-life.
    The Pykara Falls close by are an amazing sight to behold. The place is ideal for photographic delights; even on the bridge on the lake you will be greeted with views that will absolutely floor a photographer.
    Close to the lake is a dam that provides water supply to the suburbs.

  • Lamb's Rock
    On the way to Dolphin's Nose, there is an awesome picnic spot near Coonoor known as Lamb's Rock, named after an English army man Captain Lamb. This jagged rock almost seems to hang down to the land, almost touching the fiery jungles below. The rock is about 5000 feet above the ground.
    The tea estates and the Coimbatore plains are the attractions that are sure to impress you.

  • Droog Fort
    Situated about 13 km from Coonoor (which is about 19 km away from Ooty), Droog fort was once used as a military site by Tipu Sultan in the 18th century. The fort now lies in ruins, yet it is fascinating to explore it. It stands at an altitude of 6000 feet.
    Enjoy the panoramic view of the hills and the surrounding lush green plains from this majestic hill.

Doesn't this all sound all so amazing? Wait no further. Go explore these popular places near Ooty. And yes, do not forget to carry a camera to capture the beauty and glamour of these sites.
