Ooty (Udhagamandalam)

Queen of Hill Stations

Tea gardens and eucalyptus trees scent the air of the fields surrounding Ooty, a popular summer tourism destination up in the hills. The hill station once served as the summer retreat of the Madras Presidency, and many of the town's most notable buildings and public places date from the Raj era, including rose gardens, bungalows, and plantation houses. The bustle of the town during peak times seems a world away on a day excursion into the hills, with visits to Ooty traditionally including explorations of the biosphere reserve in which the hill station sits. When using our India tourist route planner, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.

Where to stay in Ooty (Udhagamandalam)

An established tourism destination, Ooty and the countryside that surrounds the hill station offer plenty in the way of accommodations. Most major Indian hotel chains have opened up shop in town and lie dotted around the hilly terrain by the main roads, the more salubrious among them enjoying a little more space and better views of the surrounding area. Look at the residential areas for budget-friendly guesthouses, or head for the rural areas that encircle the town center to find a number of atmospheric rental properties built during the colonial era.
