“heavy crowd and lot of litter”
Review of Doddabetta Peak

Doddabetta Peak
Reviewed 7 November 2013

I have visited this place twice & mostly my experience is not very pleasant. This place is very crowded and most of the tourists don't seem to display any civic sense. There is lot of litter around and tourists don't seem to enjoy the scenic essence.

Not worth, road to Doddabetta not maintained, parking is always congested, too crowdy place to breath and enjoy view. We took a U turn from the gate itself, felt suffocated.

Doddabetta is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Ooty but it fail to impress me much. Despite being the highest peak in the region it feels like any other viewpoint on top of a hill with all hustle & bustle. There is one viewing tower on top of the hill, a mere 5 minutes walk from the car parking are. The viewing tower is surrounded by a garden. The garden is well maintained but nothing extravagant.

For the best experience I would recommend going there for a sunrise. You will get to see some nice views around this time.

The drive to the peak is pretty good especially the last few KM’s where the road goes through deep forest. Really enjoyed this bit of the trip.

It is around 20 minutes drive to the peak. The road is very bad in patches. The traffic can be heavy and the queue for entry ticket at the peak long. The air, which once used to be pine scented, is now laced with exhaust fumes of the vehicles going up and down the peak.

The peak commands a bird's eye view of Ooty on clear days.
Parking and paid toilet facilities are available.

It was heavy traffic on the way, we parked our car down the hill and walked up. Nothing worth to see over there. It was rush over there.
