6. In one of the three days you will be at Coonoor, go for lunch at Red Hills in Avalanchi. The place is spectacular
Regular sightseeing which has been mentioned above
Also it will be a nice experience to travel by Nilgiri Mountain Railway. You may atleast take a ride between Ooty and Coonoor (approx 1 hour).
Since you are having 3 complete days, if time permits you may include Mudumalai wildlife sanctuary in your trip. The distance is around 50km and the route has 36 hair pin bends.
Thanks everyone for the advise..
Here is my travelogue - …travelpod.com/travel-blog/…tpod.html
Places to watch in Coonoor :
Sims Park : Old trees, flowers, boat ride. A place to enjoy an evening
Dolphin nose : Could taste different flavours of tea that is being sold in the nearby shops. Nothing much to see here, though the Catherine waterfalls is visible at a far distance.
Raliah dam : There are two routes to the dam. One is motorable and the other is only walkable that starts in the nearby village. Try the walkable route to reach the top, go only in groups as there is a chance of encountering bisons and monkeys. Carry your lunch as it might take around 4 to 5hrs in total and you will be tired and hungry by the time you reach the dam, but i felt it was worth the effort. The fresh smell of pine and eucalyptus takes away all the tiredness that you carry from the city life
