This place has become more of crowd spot for anyone coming to Ooty. However, we felt there are many more beautiful places which are not commercialised yet but much more beautiful than this spot. Please research a bit and enjoy the travel ;)

This is just another view point on the way to Ooty. You need to climb a small hillock to get a valley view. The view is nice. If you have time, you can visit else can be skipped.

Hey Abhi, 1) 21 Oct and 22 Oct is doable and you can visit rose garden (it may drizzle though). 2) As for 23 Oct, you may visit Mudumalai/ Bandhipur National Park. 3) Even if you leave early to Coimbatore on 24 Oct, you may not reach Airport before 5.30 if you plan to see the places you have mentioned. So, either you skip the places at Coonoor or pre pone those on 23 Oct and halt a night at Coonoor and next day (24 Oct) leave to Coimbatore

Hi While you do have quite a list, the directions they are in, are not in a logical order (for example, at Ooty, Botanical garden and shooting point are in two different directions). Check this link for an idea on the directions they are in and a logical sequence based on your priorities. . . . https://www.tripadvisor.in/ShowTopic-g297679… If you are a serious wildlife enthusiast, who would like to spend a couple of hours within the jungle, then your obvious choice has to be...More
