Ooty 

The beautiful hill station nestled in the Nilgiri Mountains of Tamil Nadu is definitely one of the best and most beautiful honeymoon destinations in South India. It is also one of the most visited and favoured tourist destinations in India.

It is called as the 'paradise for honeymooners' as it is a great place for city dwellers who want to find solace in the lap of nature. The enchanting beauty and calmness of the hills and the cool climate make Ooty a favourite place for honeymooners.

You could enjoy a slow and long romantic boat ride with the love of your life or a leisurely stroll among the eucalyptus plantation. The natural beauty is in abundance and the calmness of the hills will please you for sure.

It is a great romantic retreat and its pleasing climate definitely adds to the charm of this summer destination.

As this tourist favourite place is situated in the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve some ecologically sensitive areas are off-limits to the public. For the honeymooners and tourists, there is no dearth of sightseeing opportunities; there are many gardens such as the largest rose garden in the country, botanical garden etc..

Other places of interest are Ooty Lake,  Emerald, Avalanche and Porthimund lakes, deer park, boat house, Doddabetta (the highest point in Ooty), Pykara falls and boating, Echo rock, Kamaraj Sagar Dam, Wenlock Downs (with its vast meadows), pine forests, Dolphin’s Nose etc... There are also many scenic places to visit in the nearby Kotagiri and Coonor.

Another leisurely activity that you shouldn't miss while you are in Ooty with your partner is a ride on the Nilgiri Mountain Railway.  A part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site this mountain railway system still uses a fleet of steam locomotives and a ride along with your spouse will be a great experience.

Many historical as well as heritage buildings built during the erstwhile regime of the British rulers still stand proud and tall in this little hill station that include the first bungalow in Ooty the Stone House (1822), St Stephen's Church (built in 1839), Fern Hill Palace the former summer residence of the Maharaja of Mysore (built in 1844), the Gothic architecture marvel Nilgiri library (built in 1859), Breeks School (1874) and many more.

The place also offers satisfactory accommodation options that include resorts, star hotels, budget hotels and cottages.  We assure you that a trip to this little paradise will be a unique experience for you and your loved one.
