Doddabetta Peak, Ooty
(3/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan to see Doddabetta Peak and other attractions that appeal to you using our Ooty vacation planner.

  • Entire ooty city can be seen from this hill. There is also a telescope like thing to view which is not worth watching after standing in queue. There is small play area for children. Ideal for romantic...  more »
  • Certainly not worth the visit as it's crowded and the view is not at all great. You can get better scenery and view enroute to Ooty. Avoid this location. 
  • The views from the top are great. Lot of chaat and snacks on the way to the peak. But the journey to the peak in the car is bad because the roads are very bad
