Doddabetta is the highest peak of Tamil Nadu. It gives a beautiful glimpse of Ooty. Also, many photographers are available at this place to capture your moments. Souvenirs are sold too.

The peak is not very far from Ooty and worth a visit. If you take a cab then the driver will take you to some tea factory and put in a spot. The View is good and so is the ride. The roads are winding and narrow.

It is one of the best tourist places and peaks of Ooty. The great view from the peak, the foggy atmosphere and the cool winds give you the best experience.

This is the highest peak in Ooty. you can have good view of Ooty town and Coimbatore. There is a watch tower in which a telescope is installed. This place is crowded during weekends and long holidays. so plan to visit during non peak days which will enhance your experience. You can spend one hour in this place.
