Planning to visit Ooty this December. I had stayed at Lakeview Hotel some 13 years ago and it was a reasonably good hotel. I am interested in knowing how it is today, whether it is still well maintained and well run?
Secondly, I heard that last year there were large scale landslides in Ooty during late November and Ooty was cut off completely. Was road access cut off even from the Mysore end? (or is there any particular route that is more prone to landslides?) Are land slides a common occurrence during that time of the year. Having a tight holiday schedule, I can't afford to get stuck up hence a bit concerned about whether or not to visit Ooty in December.
Also, is Dodabetta accessible in December?
Thanks, in advance, for your responses.
