Location of Ooty
Ootacamund, shortened to Ooty is a town in the Nilgiri district of Tamil Nadu. Nilgiris mean “Blue Mountains” and it’s uncertain whether this name came from the blue haze given out by the eucalyptus trees growing on these hills or by the kurunji flower which blooms here every 12 years giving the hills a bluish colour. Originally occupied by the
Toda tribe, the area eventually came under the administration of the East India Company during the British Rule. The town’s economy is largely based on agriculture and tourism and is popular across the country for its natural scenic beauty and its historic landmarks.
