Overview

Ooty is the anglicized name of the Udhagamandalam or Udhagai, capital of the Nilgiri district in Indian state of Tamil Nadu. Ooty is a famous hill station which was once ruled by Toda tribal. In the end of the 18th century, this beautiful territory went under the patronage of East India Company. The British collector of Coimbatore first mentioned about this region in its gazette. Later, with further development work carried by the British, this region was made the erstwhile summer capital of the Madras residency. During the rule, agriculture and infrastructure development got great boost. Tea, fruits and vegetables remained the crops of the commercial farm culture in Ooty. After the end of British rule, this region was further developed into tourist magnet. Main emphasis was given to education and social development. Small and big cottage industries of teak, tea, vegetables, fruits, dairy milk are flourishing with a great speed at Ooty. Located 535 kms from Chennai, visitors from different parts of India enjoy the real bliss of calm and cool climate here exclusively. The Ooty Lake, filmy chakkar, boating club, old church, Toda hours are worth visiting here. Moreover, the travelers should not forget to relish the taste of home made cheese and chocolates at Ooty. Mettupalayam railway station provides an inter link to Nilgiri narrow gauge rail head. The travelers must take a joy ride on toy train which runs from the lower altitudes to the highest elevation points in Ooty. The city has a literacy rate of more than 80 percent much higher than the national average.

Dear Baapumajum, 

Thanks for your query in Kiomoi,

Ooty is totally safe at any time during the day and you should not have any kind of apprehension about any anti social element. However you must take proper precaution while moving late. But let me tell you there are no nightclubs or discos at Ooty except in Hotel Monarch which is very expensive. also do not venture into forest at night.

Good Day !!!

Hi Patra,

Hotel Preethi Palace is located just 15 minutes from the main bus stand and railway station. Hotel Preethi Place is in the heart of the town close to tourist spots, like Botanical garden, Dodabetta peak, and Rose garden.

Thanks

Dear hardik,

Go to KSRTC and ask them about the special tours that they organize for Ooty. You can contact Kiomoi also for help.

Alternatively, you can take the Mangalore - Trichy train to Coimbatore and from there take the picturesque Niligiri express to ooty.

You can also take the Kingfisher flight to Coimbatore from Mangalore.

I dont think there is a lot of direct traffic from Mangalore to Ooty. So, i wont be surprised if there is no direct buses; but private operators run direct buses to Coimbatore and coimbatore is very close
to Ooty.

ppjain
Have a wonderful trip

Dear Vikram There are plenty of Tourist bus services from Mysore and bangalore to ooty. Ooty is only 150km from Mysore. you can take any type of bus which suits you including Volvo services or go for
packaged tour to ooty which will be a better option as you will be spared of the problem of having your accommodation and food.you can ask any travel agent at Mysore who will give you the time table for
the various state and private transport services.
