a break in Ooty the charming hill station in Tamil Nadu.
Ooty was the short anglicized name given by the British
who discovered this enchanting place in the Nilgiri
Hills, of south India. The original name was Udhagamandalam
which anglicized to Ootacamund and then shortened to
Ooty. This lovely jewel is situated in the midst of
four high hills of the Nilgiris or ‘blue mountains’.
They are Doddabetta, Snowdon, Elk hill and Club Hill.
The British discovered the hill station and developed
it as a summer resort.
