Ooty - Lovely Place on Planet Earth

Ooty (aka Ootacamund - Kothar Mandhu - House of Kothars), is the Lovely place on Planet Earth. Best compared to Shimla, Kodaikanal and Yercaud.
With Dodabetta, peaking on the top and the Ketty valley (Santhoor) on the downside, this is one wonderful place on the Earth.
It can be reached from Two sides, one from Gudalur and the other Mettupalayam. It is about 2.5 hours uphill drive.
Coonoor comes first, on the way, with a view on the side - vallies and all.
All the Indian movies song scenes are shot here. There is Manjoor which is the best.
The cost of stay would be cheap from Rs 400/- to Rs 4000/-, based on budget per day. The sight seeing cost is cheap, with auto-rickshaws plying around.... Food is also cheap. Hot vegetarian food is served in most of the hotels.
What else can I say, having lived closer to Ooty at Kotagiri, just 18 kma away.
The best family vacation spot - cheap and best.

For many years now India has been a very popular tourist destination, owing to the gamut of exhilarating variety and uniqueness that it offers in its expanse. In order to reap the benefits of this interest and willingness of people to tour India, it is of utmost interest that the travel and tourism industry is strengthened and accurately incised. Especially, in the cities of the developing countries like India, the revenue coming in from the travel and tourism sector that be properly tapped and appropriately utilized by grooming and employing skilled and experienced professionals in the travel and tourism industry. In the Indian cities like Bangalore the big names from the hospitality circuit have properties and are keen on opening more properties. Most of the major players of the hospitality industry have hotels in Bangalore. The rise in the number of the Bangalore hotels requires more and more trained and able professionals from the hospitality sector. As Bangalore is booming as a promising financial hub, the number of foreign business travelers and business delegates has also increased. Under such conditions it is not just enough to open world class budget hotels in Bangalore but also to have a staff that matches the international standards of hospitality. To achieve this goal it is of utmost importance that India fuels up the momentum in setting up of travel and tourism institutions that are at par with the international standards.
