Doddabetta Peak, Ooty (Udhagamandalam)

3.7
#2 of 19 in Nature in Ooty (Udhagamandalam)
Soak up the views from the highest point of the Nilgiri mountain range at Doddabetta Peak. At a height of 2,637 m (8,650 ft), the peak looks out across Ooty and, on very clear days, ensures vistas of the distant plains of Coimbatore. Hike or take a taxi to the top, where an observatory provides two viewing stations for the public. Plan to visit early to avoid long queues along the road. Take a look at our Ooty (Udhagamandalam) route app to schedule your visit to Doddabetta Peak and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • The peak is at good height. The roads leading to doddabetta is too narrow. Causing traffic. We expect to have splendid view after all the efforts. But the hopes r in vain. Flop crowd. Lingering around...  more »
  • A man-made point near Ooty. It is too crowded and filled with filth around. It is supposed to be the highest mountain point in the Nilgiris, but it fails to impress the tourist who goes there to have ...  more »
  • Dodabetya of today was a big letdown. After the arduous 3 km drive from the main road, it was very disappointing to walk on a dirtied track thru a hawker's market to the top which was again dirty. The...  more »

  • A decent peak, nothing much special. Remains mostly covered in clouds and thus the views aren't much special. It's better to visit during day time and not close to sunrise and sunset, so that there is less clouds and the views can be better
  • Beautiful peak, nice look and awesome scenic beauty all around. During sunset it is awesome. The view from the telescopic view point is mind blowing and charming. It's a nice place to enjoy with friends or family and pass some hours in the midst of the nature.
  • Queen of valley...... Lovely place Better for couple, family, friends All vehicles are allowed (no parking fee) 10₹ entry fee for adults Many street markets are there
  • At the top point, you can see the city and the valley. The way of the dodabetta is more interesting than the final visit point. Facility and Parking are available there. You find a small local market here. You can click the photo from the tower here. If you like Valley View Points I think you like that place.
  • It is the highest peak in ooty 2637 metres or8650 feet it gives bird's eye of the valley we say many times of touching the sky here we feel like touching it but alas could not it is just illusion but can touch the clouds n rain drops It is beauty at the best as we r engulfed In clouds n embrace tiny rain drops But have to take care of cloudburst at nearby tower In other words we can say beauty at the peak
