    This garden has a minimal entry fee and very well maintained by the government. The park has a lot of varieties of flora plus a mini boating pond as well. The pond is not that clean though. The park is huge with a lot of stairs to go down to the lowest level of the park.

    Located in a vast tea plantation, hosted by Mr. Sandeep, who’s passion for all things “tea” is seen in his enthusiasm to explain in detail, all about tea - from growing to manufacturing to brewing, His 22 years of hosting the Tranquilitea - tea tasting experience…makes it a very enriching event, for all, from the first timer to the connoisseur. One starts understanding terms such as body and flavour with reference to tea brews, that are usually associated only with alcoholic beverages.
    In all, keep an hour to hour and a half, to have really insightful tea tasting with Tranquilitea. One can also purchase their home grown speciality teas.

    This tea garden is on a hill top. You get a beautiful view of the terrain and a golf course down below. The factory visit is quite interesting if you are keen to know how the different types of teas are processed. Our bad luck that they were not operational. The guides were good and their services were voluntary.
    All in all a good trip

    I like Lamb’s rock as it has nice through tea plantation and a nice walk through jungle at the end. Not very far from Ooty main city. 400-700 for Riksh for 2 hours.

    Really long walk and it was a bit under rated
    I would not suggest doing it unless you are really in the mood for a bit of a hike
    Being from places with amazing rock formations- this might not really cut it

    I attended a Friday evening Lenten service and a Sunday morning service and was inpressed with how much at home I felt with this congregation of believers half the world away from my home in Pennsylvania. They were very welcoming and the service was spiritually uplifting.

    We visited this place as my niece who has heard stories about this place wanted to desperately see it. The gate is mostly closed and only open when the guard is present. My niece and hubby had to go over the wall to check the place. We had kids and senior members with us so most of us chose to stand out. The place is definitely haunting and isolated. There is a path behind that has very beautiful and breath taking view of the valley.

    The Droog fort you see in the pics (walls and clock tower) has been bought by someone and is a private property now. No one knows the where abouts of The "Droog Fort", the pictures of which are posted here. The google map location is that of the 2 storey watch tower, pictures of which are also posted here. However the trek to the watch tower, though the nonsuch tea estate was one of the most picturesque and memorable experiences for me. There is a motorable road till the base of hills from where the trek begins. There are stairs and rocks and the way is marked by crude white arrows. The view point is the highest point in the entire region and one can get a bird's eye view. One can see the clouds floating around. The entire trek takes about 1.5 hrs one way. It gets sunny and hot around noon so pls plan your trek accordingly.

    One of the important tourist centre is Wellington Lake and it is nearer to Coonoor. Environment and climate is good. Boating facilities are there and enjoyed the ride.

    We had visited the Brookland Tea garden during our sightseeing in Coonoor. We had gone on a Sunday afternoon and found that the entrance gate to the tea estate was closed. We were disappointed but we clicked pictures of the lush green sprawling tea garden filled with beautiful silver oak trees from the outside.

    What an amazing place may be not known to many at-least I wasn’t aware for sure. It is beautiful, serene, peaceful surrounded by lush greens and mountains besides a golf course. We were there to explore some boarding schools around but found a hidden jewel inside a lovely hill city wellington close to Coonoor. Worth the visit it was for us a a family and the most relaxing vacation we have had.
