Sanctuary Avalanche, Ooty

(4/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Enjoy the nature at Sanctuary Avalanche, a forested wildlife reserve in the Nilgiri Mountains. A popular tourist attraction for nature-lovers in the Ooty area, this grassed sanctuary with cauliflower shola trees, rhododendrons, and orchids provides excellent hiking opportunities, the most popular being the trail along the Bhawani River. Climb up the hills to get sweeping views of Ooty, then visit a Toda highlander village and see their cylindrical huts. The area centers around Lake Avalanche, famous for its trout. Rent fishing gear from the trout hatchery and fish for some fine trout specimens. And don't worry--despite its name, the area hasn't experienced an avalanche since 1825 Add Sanctuary Avalanche and other attractions to your Ooty trip itinerary using our Ooty trip generator.
