Abounding 360 degrees of beauty.
Ooty City on one side.
Kotagiri on the other side (far away).
You can spend an hour easily in the surroundings.
The atmosphere is simply beautiful and refreshing.
You get to see Gods own Art as Clouds array themselves in formations and the Sunrays peek into valley thru clouds.
you get a 360 degrees Horizon of peaks & valleys below you.
You observe that the Nilgiris are truly Blue Mountains.

Be prepared for a short climb to reach the place from the car park. You have to climb several well placed and long steps. The path goes down in the centre with climb at both ends therefore you have to go thru it while going as well as comming.
Observation Tower needs eternal patience to enter thru huge que. the place is reeling with crowds. Peace can only be felt when you focus on the valleys below. If you are lucky you will get to sit somewhere.
Capurchino from cafe-coffee-day is very comforting and welcome.

You can snap photographs and panaromas to kingdome come.

The road to doddabetta peak is very narrow. We went from Ooty Bus Stand to doddabetta by bus and avail auto to reach this point.There is a telescope house where one can enjoy the clear views.It is also a nice place for photography.This place is crowded during season and holiday times so go as early as possible for a hassle-free visit.

It is the highest peak in the Nilgiris and this peak offers mesmerizing vistas of the mountains, hill, plains around. The place has a very limited space for parking so parking is an issue in this place it takes much time to get out from there. You cab take around 1 to 2 hours total time to spend in this spot. A good place for the people who love to take photographs.

Doddabetta Peak is an awesome spot, extreme scenic with lovely weather. You can enjoy the nature at its best. The spot will be overcrowded most of the time and the parking is little issue in this place. There are many roadside shops selling souvenirs where you can get for cheap rates. the spot is good but the restroom facility requires improvement.

Doddabetta is just a viewpoint with some good views of the city. Entry ticket is not very expensive. Better to go as early as possible otherwise this place gets too crowded by 10 or 11 am.You can skip this place if you have less time.

The View from Doddabetta is nice. But Not much to see here and parking vehicle is a big task. Go before 11 am because this place will be crowded by the visitors all the time.

Doddabetta peak is the highest peak in South India . The spot is too cold and breezy. During monsoon and winters, the spot is covered with mist. But that is the perfect time to visit because the view and climate both are awesome. Please wear winter wear clothes if you visit early morning, evening time, monsoon and winter season.

Doddabetta peak which is considered to be the highest peaks in South India. After reaching the viewpoint you can see the beautiful valleys, Coimbatore plains.The view from the top is astonishing.The telescope house is there from where you can see the Ooty, Coonoor town.Local photographers take photos and give it for a nominal rate. The entry ticket is also very nominal.

The best vantage points in Ooty. The viewpoint is completely charmed by its beauty. The telescope house in Dodabetta gives a complete view of the surrounding landscape.Tourist can also indulge in trekking to make their trip more memorable. Hawkers are sitting on both sides of the path. Don't forget to visit Tea factory while coming back to Ooty from Doddabetta.Parking is not a problem in this place. Roadside vendors sell boiled peanuts, chickpeas, corns etc..Do not forget to taste them.
