I decided to go for a quiet, relaxed and natural place and after a 5 hours journey I got to Ooty where Mr. Jolly (Resort manager) a generous and happy person picked me up from the bus station and took me to the resort which is 20 mins away from the town.
I had a delicious dinner at the restaurant and relaxed; the next morning when I woke up and went to the balcony realized how beautiful and enlightening was to see the sunrise in the mountains then while having breakfast I met Mr. Ravi (owner) a very friendly person who is always gonna make you feel like at home.
I was only going to stay for two nights but ended up staying 5 days, I had plenty of time to read my books, meditate and practice yoga on the terrace. Although I was traveling on my own, I meet some other travelers who stayed there and where really friendly; one night we ask the chef If we could cook and we all made the traditional kappa and 'spicy' onion chutney, It was awesome and very tasty!
The staff was very helpful, When I needed to go to the town they always offered me a lift; Trekking is such a lovely experience, I was accompanied by two Indians and a lady who knew the place and showed me around, I was amazed by the beauty of the landscapes and the wild life. In the afternoons gets a bit chill but a good Chai will keep you warm.
The rooms are spacious and clean, the whole place is enchanted and I always felt comfortable, relaxed and well served.
if you are going to Ooty but want to relax after been overwhelmed with the city's noise, Mount n Mist is the place to be. I definitely coming back on my next trip to India.
