Trip to Ooty in Mid Jan

Is it a good time to visit Ooty in mid-Jan? Also how early should we e starting with the hotel bookings for the same date. Because I checked and found that some hotels are already booked out as per tripadvisor/agoda. Please suggest on the booking and good hotels if possible.

Note: Me and my wife are planning for the visit.

Thanks!

Hi...

Welcome to Trip Advisor...

Personally feel, it is too early now for bookings in January. But, if you are getting the expected rates and the kind of properties, you may do it anytime. Ooty is an all year round destination and only the differentiator would be the little rains or sun.

Hi

Mid Jan is when the Pongal festival season starts in Tamilnadu for a few days. So, if you are planning your trip around the 15th, then it may be good to book in advance. Yes, you are right, a couple of leading names - are almost sold out for the 13th to 20th week of January 2013.

Ooty would be at the fag end of winter during that time line - a bit chilly at nights.

If you indicate your budget range, we could possibly suggest a couple of options for stay.

Hey Thanks Friends,

Thanks for the quick reply and hence guiding me. Actually I am also planning between 15th and 22nd Jan. So I am planning to book in advance. I have range of say 5K per day and planning for 4-5 days/nights of stay. Also its tough to find direct contact numbers of hotels like Club Mahindra, Sherlock....so that booking is done directly. Whats your suggestion? Should I use intermediate parties like agoda/expedia or do direct booking?

Thanks!

Also 4-5 days are sufficient for decent sight-seeing right? Please suggest.

Hi

Nothing like getting it done directly. 4 to 5 days is great for a leisurely and spaced out holiday. Check this link for more info on contact details . .
