Ooty (Udhagamandalam)

Ooty, 'Queen of Hill Stations', mixes Indian bustle and Hindu temples with beautiful gardens, an international school and charming Raj-era bungalows (which provide its most atmospheric accommodation). It may be a bit hectic, but it doesn't take long to escape into quieter, greener areas where tall pines rise above what could almost be English country lanes.
