Ooty is a hill station in the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu. It’s a heavenly place full of greenery and showcases the beauty of nature.
Our first destination was Ooty hill station. We took a toy train from Mettupalayam which took 5 hours to reach our destination. It was an awesome journey in the toy train, enjoying the beauty of nature the forests, tea gardens etc. It was chilly in the morning.
The rose garden was a real treat with its various collection of roses. Similarly the Botanical garden had different types of trees brought from all over the world. It was a pleasant view. The garden was well maintained. Each tree was shaped in a good manner with different shapes. It will take at least 2 hours to have a complete look at the garden.
The tea gardens of Ooty will make you feel like you are taking a stroll in paradise. Then we visited the Pykara River. The area around the lake is located with forest which brings beauty to it.
Then we visited the local markets of Ooty. There were different stalls of fresh vegetables, bunch of fresh carrots. There were stalls of homemade chocolates which were very famous. There were small kids selling flowers to the tourists. Which was a heart touching scenario, they were doing jobs at the age where they should be going to schools. Everyone was ready to buy the flowers even if they were not in need of it, because it would bring a smile onto the faces of those innocent kids.
Thus everyone should once visit this paradise on earth which is been created by god for us. It’s really one of the best holiday destination.
