Hi Arpit_12,

Welcome to Trip Advisor.

Suggest you dig up the Ooty and Coonoor forums a little deeper and you would find the answers for your question. You can to fix up with one of the travel agencies in Ooty, who conduct daily sight seeing tours. You would see a lot of billboards in and around the Charring Cross area or your hotle can even help you. This would be in a seat in coach or if you prefer a separate car, according to your budget. They will have different type of tours and you may choose the one which impresses you.

The places to cover would be Ooty - Botanical Garden, Rose Garden, Boat House, Dodabetta Peak & Pykara Falls and Coonoor - Sims Park, Dolphin Nose, Lady Canning Seating and Lambs Rock. I have listed only the most general places as you have 2 days only.

Feel free to revert for any clarifications..

I suggest to extend to 3 days for a comfortable sightseeing. In two days you could visit the following must-see spots as per your interest.

Toy train, Botanical Garden, Rose Garden, Boat House, Dolphin's Nose, Dottabetta Peak, Pykara Lake & Sim's Park

My pleasure. Don't mention.

Day 1 - Botanical Garden - Boat House - Rose Garden - Lunch - Dolphin Nose - Lambs Rock - Sims Park - Doddabetta Peak(subject to returning via Coonoor - Kotagiri road and turn towards Ooty at Kattabettu).

Day 2 - Pykara Falls - Pykara Boat House - All miles (Cine Shooting spots as they are known) - Mudhumalai (Jungle Safari etc)

If you want to check on the Toy Train, you might consider one way from Ooty to Coonoor and have your car pick you up at Coonoor and continue the plan. Check the timings at the Railway Station and if available at your time, consider that.

Hi,

It depends if you want to do the regular tourist stuff or more on scenic.. also it depends on ..if u r traveling with friends, family or as a couple.

Doddabetta Peak has a good view..

Dolphin's nose is not so great but the way to it is really beautiful..Don't forget to cover 6th Mile and 9th Mile as they provide a nice scenic beauty but are bit crowded and so is Doddabetta..

I ll suggest

Rose Garden or Botanical Garden( if u love gardens) and Doddabetta Peak are in ooty so u can cover them together.

Pykara Lake, 6th Mile, 9th Mile and Pine forest are some 10 kms away from ooty and actually on the way to Ooty if you are taking that route so they can be clubbed together..

Dolphins's Nose and Lam's rock are on the same route and in Coonoor. Sim's Park and Wellington Glof Course can be clubbed together as they are nearby.. If you are a tea totaller and wanna visit a Tea factory then there is one Near Sim's Park called the Highlands Tea Estate which goves u a plantation tour as well as they have a tea factory..

I am telling u these places keeping in mind that you are traveling by a cab or a private vehicle .. as going from one place to another takes some time.
