    1st image with lake and tea garden is awesome way to start this informative post on “Queens of the Hills” Ooty.

    Ooty is on my travel radar for a long time but unfortunately I haven’t had the opportunity to travel to the Southern part of India. Details on things to do in Ooty has invigorated the long dormant itch to travel to Ooty.

    I must thank you for that. Keep traveling. Keep writing and sharing!
