“Highest Peak of Ooty”
Review of Doddabetta Peak

Doddabetta Peak
Reviewed November 11, 2013

Like the scene from the top of the hill, however Ooty is place full of scene and scenery, so don't feel bad if you miss it.

A very good place to have a beautiful sight of Nilgiris.

Only the road from Doddabetta junctio to the peak has not been made for so many years( since it belongs to forest department).....

If the road is made, it will be good.

I have visited this place twice & mostly my experience is not very pleasant. This place is very crowded and most of the tourists don't seem to display any civic sense. There is lot of litter around and tourists don't seem to enjoy the scenic essence.

Not worth, road to Doddabetta not maintained, parking is always congested, too crowdy place to breath and enjoy view. We took a U turn from the gate itself, felt suffocated.

Doddabetta is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Ooty but it fail to impress me much. Despite being the highest peak in the region it feels like any other viewpoint on top of a hill with all hustle & bustle. There is one viewing tower on top of the hill, a mere 5 minutes walk from the car parking are. The viewing tower is surrounded by a garden. The garden is well maintained but nothing extravagant.

For the best experience I would recommend going there for a sunrise. You will get to see some nice views around this time.

The drive to the peak is pretty good especially the last few KM’s where the road goes through deep forest. Really enjoyed this bit of the trip.
