Ooty

Spread out among rolling hills 7,429 feet above sea level, Ooty offers marvelous scenic beauty, ringed with lovely blue hills, soft grassy slopes and a crisp, balmy air. There is a fine gold course and forests and game parks where excursions are a popular attraction. You do not lack space here-one can walk for miles among the winding, rising and plunging road, or hire a horse and go riding in the hills. Shopping for handicrafts is interesting and not very expensive.
