Ooty - Queen of Hills

This was a destination which I was wanting to do for a long time and was definitely worth every bit of it. Once you reach this place, you'll know why it is called Queen of Hills by the local people. It is a beautiful little town connected by Nilgiri ghat roads and Nilgiri mountain railways. Ooty was a summer resort for the British colonials. Originally known as Udhagamandalam, it was occupied by the Toda and Badaga tribes. These tribes still inhabit the land which are outside of the town limits and are primarily agrarian based. I bring to you some wonderful things to do and places to hang out in Ooty:
