Ooty Tour Operator
Queen of the Blue Mountains
All over India the British located idyllic spots for hill resorts so as to get away from the heat of the plains in summer. In the south, in the Nilgiris or Blue Mountains (which get their name from the blue haze which envelops them), they selected three spots, Ooty, Coonoor and Kotagiri. Of these three, Ooty with its beautiful gardens, wooded rolling hills, pine and eucalyptus forests and cool climate has earned the name, Queen of Hill Stations. The Nilgiris are known for their tea and coffee plantations and for the eucalyptus oil used as a base for medicines for coughs and colds. There are many ancient tribal people here, the Badagas and Todas amongst others, whose talents have helped to developed Ooty.
