Ootacamund or Ooty, as it is fondly called, is a very popular hill station situated in the south Indian state of Tamil Nadu. It is called the “Queen of the Nilgiris”. Nilgiris is the name of the hill range. There is a narrow gauge train that connects the hill station with the plains. The journey on this train is extremely popular.
This is a pretty hill station, known for its beauty and home made chocolate industry.
We had visited it on a weekend while we were working in Trivandrum in another southern state, Kerala. That was way back in 2005.
Sadly, I don’t have the photographs. I found these from an old album.
