India is a country with numerous beautiful and rejuvenating hill stations. Of those, Udhagamandalam or Ooty, in the state of Tamil Nadu, surely stands out. Although the origin of its name is still debated on, many believe that it hailed from the words Ootaca or Otha-Cal, taken from a local tribal language. Ooty lies at an elevation of 7,350 ft above sea level and boasts of a pleasant weather almost all-year round, thus making our Ooty tour packages highly popular. Popularly known as Ootacamund, Ooty served as a summer retreat by the Britishers. Over the course of time, the place saw many heritage edifices and sprawling tea estates spur in the region, increasing its scenic beauty manifolds. Its stunning natural beauty is precisely the reason why Ooty is not just a popular holiday destination for families, but is also the top choice of most honeymooners, on the lookout for a serene location to spend some quality time with their partners.
With trees covering the hills in profusion and beautiful lakes, Ooty makes for holiday destination you will cherish for a lifetime. Most Ooty holiday packages also consist of an exciting journey through the Nilgiri mountain railway which is also listed by the UNESCO. Since this hill route involves one of the worldandrsquo;s steepest acclivities, it uses rack and pinion system which was developed long ago in 1811. The train starts from Mettupalayam and goes winding across hills, taking its passengers over steadily elevating tracks. This bewitching journey has the train crossing myriad lovely tea gardens, and chugging around 200 curves, 350 bridges, and 16 tunnels!
While Ooty packages have a lot to offer, the colonial town setting featuring the British legacy is the most attractive of them all. The blend of classic and contemporary interplaying in such settings can be a visual treat for visitors. The town is dotted with quaint Raj-era buildings dating way back to the 19th century. Of these, the Stone House, Fernhill Palace and St. Stephenandrsquo;s Church are most outstanding. The Stone House, built in 1844 was the first bungalow and the first andlsquo;puccaandrsquo; house of the area, which also served as the residence of the Maharaja of Mysore. The beauty of the bungalow standing over a lush tuft of grass surrounded by tall trees is one to behold and provides the perfect backdrop for memorable pictures.
On the other hand, St. Stephenandrsquo;s Church, though rather plain looking on the exterior has a contrasting interior. With aisle covered in carpet, wooden benches in warm coffee color and high arched windows paned with glass paintings depicting scores of stories from the Bible, the church is a synonym of elegance and grace. Apart from these, the hill station has many other attractions worth a visit, including the Tea Museum, Pykara waterfall, Doddabetta Peak and the Wax World Museum to name a few.
