Take a break from the chaos of city life and visit hillstations of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu in this 4 days tour package.


The birthplace of proud kings of olden times, the city of Mysore in the state of Karnataka has a unique allure. Whenever the name ' Mysore' is mentioned, grand palaces with intricate and vibrant architecture come to mind. But Mysore is more than these majestic works in stone.


Amidst the glory of the splendid blue-hued Nilgiri mountains in Tamil Nadu, lies the fascinating little town of Ooty. The quaint green paths, overshadowed by towering pine trees, reminds one of an English countryside. The charming colonial era bungalows take you back to the British era. In contrast, the bustling town centre consists of chaotic streets, busy markets and throngs of tourists

  • Highest peak of the Nilgiri hills at 2637 metres. I'd recommend anyone to carry warm jackets with them even during the summer. It's extremely cold up the air but an experience you will never forget. Very special.

  • Very nice places to visit Nilgiri hills... there are more places to visit near options to go side seen to cover all places...Bike or car..

  • It is the fourth highest peak-2637metres(8650feet) in South India. Incredible place. Visited here with friends. wish to visit again.I wonder why pay toll at all. Magendiran :)

  • Its a high altitude place where you can see the whole ooty, but its a small area and nothing special too see other than the view and the experience of cold and foggy breeze. Parking charge is 20rs and entry fee is just 7rs. You can also buy sweaters woolen gloves riding gloves which are cheap. Easily drivable upto destination.

  • Yes, it is the highest peak in tamil nadu. View is stunning and the climate is always cold with light rain and heavy wind. The telescope tower in here is an absolute waste. When we went there, the telescope was positioned to observe some house. The guide who was supposed to explain us the details was sitting there playing some mobile games. 😢 Apart from that, i really enjoyed my visit here.
