A shooting place used in many bollywood films. A nice place for photography, with scenic views. Tree and plane makes this place more beautiful. Not a must visit in my view but a nice place en route.

Truck loads of students howling and cheering greeted us when we went in for a stroll. The view was great and quite captivating. One can wander around in the adjoining hills as well.

This place has nothing special to pint out. Just small hill with grass land and some trees. Little far from Ooty town.

Average scenery. Not a must visit spot. But if you want to visit it, make sure you visit it early in the morning when crowd is less. Not sure why there is an entry fee as it is not worth it. Nothing much to write about it.

Small hillock. I don't know why this place ticketed. Just climb up and see around. Nothing much. Only hype. Better to stop at a place of your choice elsewhere in Ooty and enjoy the nature

Shooting point is good only for short time visit, the entry fee is Rs.10. You have to climb the hill to see grass land and some pine trees. Then take some photos and come back, nothing much to say. Horse riding available. There are many beautiful places other than this you can spend in Ooty.

1. Not much crowd if you in morning hours 2. Best place to walk & enjoy wonderful weather throughout the day... 3. Avoid going during afternoon time...
