As the summer retreat for generations of British officials, and later, scores of city-dwellers, Ooty has developed plenty of activities to entertain all age groups and interests. From the thrill of a horse race to a slow yet scenic ride on the Nilgiri Mountain Railway, you’ll find it all here.
1.British-era churches
As a colonial-era hill station, Ooty has several historic churches. Attend a Sunday service at the oldest of these, St Stephen’s church.
2.Botanical Gardens
Established in 1847 by the Governor of Madras, this gorgeous park is one of the oldest botanical gardens in the country.
3.Ooty’s racecourse
Ooty’s colonial-era racecourse organises the horse racing season every summer, a tradition that’s over 125 years old.
4.Nilgiri Mountain Railway
Looking for the best way to see the Nilgiri mountains? Hop on this steam engine train that runs from Mettupalayam to Ooty and back, stopping at hill stations such as Coonoor, Wellington, Lovedale and Ketty enroute.
5.Picnic at Wenlock Downs
With its vast expanse of green meadows, this popular spot is perfect for walks, pony rides and lazy picnics.
6.Boating at the Ooty Lake
This beautiful but polluted lake was constructed in 1824 by Ooty’s founder John Sullivan, who dammed a mountain stream to create this artificial water body.
