Doddabetta means ‘Big Mountain’ in the Badaga language that’s native to Ooty. The grandeur of this mountain leaves those who visit awestruck. There are 24 mountain peaks in the Nilgiris and Doddabetta is the highest. Trekking to Doddabetta Viewpoint, at its summit is a must when you visit any of the Club Mahindra resorts in Ooty. Marvelling at the views of the sweeping forests of Bandipur National Park, the plains of Coimbatore and the open highlands of Mysore from this vantage point is one of the most enjoyable things to do in Ooty.
Doddabetta Viewpoint is a relatively flat piece of land as compared to other peaks in the region. This means you have room to relax and enjoy nature’s grandeur in comfort. You can start or end your day at the summit, to enjoy the inspiring sunrise and sunset.
Visitors to Doddabetta Viewpoint get a bird’s eye view of Ooty from the peak thanks to the glass-paned Telescope House and observatory platform maintained by the Tamil Nadu Tourism Development Corporation, which has two telescopes visitors can use to get a closer look at the picturesque Ooty.
Getting to Doddabetta Viewpoint is an experience in itself. The trek up to the summit is relatively easy and offers striking views of the colourful rhododendrons, sprinkled over the lush greenery of the Nilgiris. Furthermore, the winding mountain paths run through a mix of open fields and tall grass making the journey seem straight out of a story book.
