There is more to this Tamil land with its oldest living language and Dravidian culture. Nilgiri translates to Blue Mountain – a serene beauty carried by each passing wind. The important regions of this district are the Udhagamandalam or Ooty, Coonor, Kotagiri and Wellington. Historically, Ooty was the summer capital of the Madras province, due to its natural beauty & also famous for many Bollywood and Kollywood shoots. Many have grooved to the toy train song of ‘Chaiyya chaiyya’ in their younger days! Ooty is also known for its lakes specially the man made wonder, Ooty Lake. Dodda Betta is the highest peak of the Nilgiris, to have a great sunrise/sunset view. Coonor has greenery stretched across it, be it in the form of Dolphin’s Nose with Catherine falls or the Lamb’s Rock. The Longwood Shola in Kotagiri covers the evergreen forests, serving as a home of the flying fox and the Indian Bison. The Nilgiri hills are also famous for providing a spectacular trekking experience. Wellington has the famous Manekshaw Bridge formerly known as the Black bridge.
Over the years there are many hotels set up in the region on Nilgiri. The Taj Savoy Ooty, Gateway Coonoor, Sterling, Fortune, Sinclairs or Neemrana provide luxury hospitality for the tourists. Normally there are no high speed fans used in these resorts. Along with the usual renovation of interiors, today its better to consider No Noise Premium Underlight fans. Luxaire has lovely options for Victorian Ceiling Fans or Pedestal and Floor Fans for high ceiling hotels & home stays. Modern ecofriendly Pendant lighting can make any Restaurant or Foyer entrance look grand.
