“View from the Top”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

We saw only India Tourists here with perhaps 4 Europeans beside ourselves. Snacks & trinkets for sale as you enter, all indian style cuisine cooked on outdoor gas burners, so we didn't fancy trying any! Washed carrots being sold like hot-cakes to the Indian kids.

“Picturesque View of Blue Mountains”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

There is parking place but not organized or controlled so you end up getting blocked by other vehicles or you may have to park vehicle on the main road.

One has to walk about 100 meters to reach the Peak. The parks around the peak are fantastic and we can get 360 degree panoramic and picturesque view of the surrounding hills and valleys.

The observatory is equipped with only one telescope offering only the view of the Ooty Bus Stand. The attender doesn’t allow you to touch or focus the telescope so that you can’t see anything else. This also makes us wait for long time to get to the telescope. The authorities may need to install more telescopes and allow the visitors to view different locations to their liking.

“No big deal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Ooty has plenty of places with scenic view-points. This being the highest point offers a good view but is always buzzing with people. We clicked a few pictures and spent half an hour wondering around the place. That's all there is to it.
