Kotagiri Nilgiris Hill Station Travel Tour

KotagiriKotagiri is located 16-km away from Ooty and it is the oldest hill station of the Nilgiris. Kotagiri is situated at an altitude of 1950m, which was once a British hill resort, that dates back to 1819 and is quieter than Ooty. Elk Falls, Kodanad Viewpoint and Catherine Falls are a few places to visit.

Kotagiri enjoys a climatic advantage over Ooty, in that the Doddabetta range protects it from the onslaught of the southeast monsoon. There is a wonderful golf course, which is just a sheet of gorgeous green. There are some thick, deep impenetrable forests called "Sholas".
