Must find time to go around the Emerald lake when you visit Ooty. It’s a pure village with innocent people with there farmlands ! No more traffics and pollution ! You get very SCENIC VIEW when you go to the high altitude to the near mountains. There is some private Resorts which can give you memorable view of the Emerald!!
Nice place.. perfect place for nature lovers.. looks like construction is going on and you could find food/ alcohol waste materials being dumped near to the lake.....
