Over View

Ooty, previously known as Udagamandalam, is a hill station in Tamil Nadu that is tucked away within the Nilgiri hills and is a popular tourist destination. The Queen of the Hills is a charming retreat and was formerly thought to be the East India Company’s summer headquarters.

Ooty is the ideal getaway for everyone because of its lovely colonial architecture, tranquil waterfalls, winding country lanes, and tea gardens. Ooty, a favorite destination for honeymooners and couples, entices tourists with expansive views of the Nilgiri highlands.

Asia’s steepest track is on the Nilgiri Mountain Railway. Do you recall the popular song “Chaiyya Chaiyya,” in which Malaika Arora and Shahrukh Khan dance on top of a train? Recall the beautiful scenery you saw when the train chugged through the thick forest. Yes, that was the Nilgiri Mountain Railways, and the Nilgiri Mountains all along.
