Doddabetta peak is situated on the Ooty-Kotagiri Road at a distance of 9 kms from Ooty Bus stand and it is the highest peak of the Nilgiri mountain ranges. It is indeed surprising to have a panoramic view of the Chamundi hills from the summit and also the accessible well-laid roads.
Tucked between Ooty and Kotagiri, Doddabedda is simply beautiful and refreshing to spend few hours with the aroma of variety of herbs and spices and the chilly air. The peaks and the valleys around gives a magical transformation to the entire region.
Go for a short climb from the car parking area where you can find people in groups or pairs enjoying the cool climate prevailing around. Hot corn, chai, cappuchino, cucumber and mangoes are the refreshments you get all the way to the summit.
The two telescopes at the top are reeling with people, waiting for their turn to have the panoramic view of Coimbatore plains, Mysore highlands and a lot more from the peak of Doddabetta.
Pony horse rides are also available and at times you can also witness some cinema shootings going on in any of the south Indian languages.
If you are a photo fanatic, nature lover, backpacker, honeymooner, family man, Doddabetta is an ideal location to be in line with nature and experience its beauty at its best.
Plan to include Doddabetta during your tour to Ooty, an all-time favourite location to relax your nerves and rejuvenate your spirits.
