there is not much you can do in Ooty. Thus this falls in line with the travelling (2hrs). However the roads are very bad and you are sure to get a backache. However its worth going.

Best sunrise view point at Munnar. You need to either trek from suryanelli or hire a jeep to reach kolukkumalai. You can also camp at tea estate and make an early morning hike for sunrise
