Ooty
The Capital of the Nilgiris District, Ooty or Ootacamund is one of the top visited hill stations in India. The place lies in the heart of the Nilgiris Mountains with an average elevation of 2,240 meters above sea level. The place is characterized by the blue smoky mist from the thick eucalyptus forests and is also known to house the rare kurunji flower. The town’s major source of economy, like most hill stations is tourism. Many officials of the British government described the likeliness of this place to resemble Switzerland.
