Udhagamandalam Ooty

 

Overview

Ooty is situated deep within the Nilagiri hills (which can be literally translated as The Blue Mountains). It is unknown whether this name arises from the blue smoky haze given off by the eucalyptus trees that cover the area or from the kurunji flower, which blooms every twelve years giving the slopes a bluish tinge. Nilgiris in general was ruled by Ganga kings and later by Hoysala kings, particularly Vishnuvardhana who captured Wynad and Nilgiri area during the 11th century. Tippu Sultan was the first to extend his border by constructing a hideout cave like structure.
 
 
Ooty is situated on National Highway NH-67. It is connected by road to travellers from the states of Tamil Nadu, Keralaand Karnataka via the five main accepted Nilgiri Ghat Roads. There is also a road from Mettupalayam (Coimbatore) to Ooty via Kotagiri andManjur, which doesn't pass through Coonoor town. Ooty is well connected by good roads.
