Nice place not a big climb on walk worth to see if you love scenery..Telescope not working???

Tiling was on, so should be good after the path repair is completed..

It is a lovely but bumpy ride to the peak but the view was worth it. One can spend sometime chilling there, having hot coffee and chana or icecream if one is brave enough. One wishes that the govt would maintain it a bit better. As with all tourist spots, it could do with a bit of work.but the view is fantastic!

Basically due to the Altitude Temperature (Low) and the Green Scenic view, I personally like Ooty(Ootacamund) very much and I make sure that I visit atleast once in a year to this place. I've visited ooty more than 100 times! from the year 1986!! Although there are many places of attraction for tourists here, Dodabetta is one of the Must places to see! Its around 20 minutes drive from the city(Charing Cross).
The "Plus":
- Its the Highest Peak at that location
- Its easily reachable by Road
- Worth reaching that spot to take a Fresh Breathe
- Scenic View of all mountains around
The "Minus":
- As usual the local Government Agencies are much bothered in collecting Entry Fees and not maintaining the place neat!
- The watch tower behind the Refreshing Snack Shop is dangerous with a Pot Hole
- The Shop has thrown their wastes behind spoiling the beautiful nature!
- The way from parking to reach the peak (Foot Path) needs to be improved. It lies the same as it was 10 years ago!! No Improvement.
Inspite of all the above Minus, we get refreshing air there!! So, its worth going there and spend some time!

The place is a little foggy if you go early morning. Remember to carry your woolen clothes as its very cold.

It was really great experience. We had gone to doddabetta peak when it was pretty cold around 9 AM in the morning. The view was really super. No one can afford to miss this.
