OVERVIEW

Situated at an altitude of 2240 metres in the Nilgiri or "blue hills" hills of the Western Ghats, Ooty is quintessentially a tourist destination, providing the same sort of summer retreat that Kodaikanal does. Lofty mountains, lakes, dense forests, sprawling grasslands, large expanses of tea plantations surround the town. A little meter guage train slowly chugs uphill from the plains, an exciting journey for visitors. There are energetic little ponies to ride once visitors arrive at the town’s pretty little train station and numerous picnic spots and trekking trail to explore. 
Ooty was once a favourite summer retreat of British colonialists who used it as a weekend getaway. When it was made into their summer administrative headquarters, colonial bungalows and cottages sprang up all around, a few of which remain to date. Ooty is famous for its strawberries and handmade chocolates, sold in quaint little shops on the High Street, where a discerning eye might also pick up an antique or two. For the curious and the adventurous, there are settlements of hill tribes known as the Toda, who still live exactly as they did centuries ago. They craft the most beautiful silver jewellery and dramatically coloured woollen shawls, which visitors may buy from them.
