Open space for strolling

Nothing much here. Open grounds at a high point where you may stroll over the hills and view the valley. You may do horse riding if that is your cup of tea. Else click some photos... read more

This is about 15-18 kms from Ooty bus stand towards Gundelpetta road. One can walk a lot and there is horse riding too. Good place for selfies...

From here you can see the famous chaiya chaiya song shooting spot at a good height. Make sure you have a guide with you.

some plain land amongst giant trees. I realized you simply cannot stroll in a thick forest. You need some place to park vehicle and move around easily. Generally a lot of cinema shooting used to happen here.

This is a place which is filled with up hill down hill and its called the shooting point. The place is good and if you go to up you can see a very nice lake there. Good for taking pictures with your family and loved once.

In the rainy season, the grass on the hills is very green and that's the best time to visit this place. The surrounding is immensely beautiful too, and this place provides one of the best places to horse ride.

These hills are beautiful. it is a small trek to the top of one hill and then to another. but the experience is beyond compare. We weren't expecting it to be so serene. We thought as it was a tourist spot, there would be a lot of people, but these hills are so big, that they can accommodate them all.... More

The scenery at sunset is just amazing, You can easily spend few hours in the evening just sitting there and enjoying the view. This place is on the way to pykkara falls.

This place is on the way from Ooty to Pykara. Scenery is really good in this place. This place consists of a set of small hills, the area is very vast & beautiful. Please dont miss this place
