Yes, sorry to say so.
But i had heard about this place from the time i was a kid.
That was mainly because of a good bollywood movie with the superstar Amitabh in it.
and since then... i had always this urge to visit this place... no matter what the reviews said.
So.. when you got to go... you got to go. :-)
Destination : Ooty/Connoor
Place of Stay : Forgettable
Journey : Bangalore to Ooty
Mode of Transport : AC Volvo
Transport Booking : Karnataka Road Transport
1. Ooty is too comercial.
2. Too many sight seeing points made up for Indian tourists to visit. Most of them are not wort it.
1. Good weather
2. The place is new, doesnt matter if it Ooty... :-)
3. The toy train trip from Ooty to Conoor - its about 1 hr approx and costs less than 200Rs Max
4. Conoor is much better than Ooty - in terms of visual beauty.
but there are far too less places to stay there. :-(
But i met with local people and they say how foreigners did all the fun things.
they camped and trekked and knew all the right places to go to .. :-)
so there i was... alien in my own country.... :-(
So any place can be enjoyed.... you just need to have the eye for it.
