Khwaish’s B’day–Day 2 at Ooty journey continues.


With best of memories on the first day,finally its D-Day Khwaish’s b’day,my little angel turned 5.Her day started with receiving lots of wishes from grandmother and two aunts followed by phone keep on ringing in the morning.

So excitement has already began in nature’s way our day started with little birdies chirping which can be seen from cottage window…


Some are even in the pairs…..,lovely misty morning of Ooty.Good Morning Ooty!!


After beautiful welcome of the day at mother nature with best of of flora and fauna,we moved on for better part.Ok after getting ready for expedition for the day, we went to have well made idli breakfast by attendant of homestay in the dinning area which was yummy ,surely great energy pumper for the day.

The main attraction of the day at Ooty which we got to see through the day-

Coonoor-Passing through steep hill station roads,Tea Gardens in midst of Nilgiri mountains-Yes lots of tea plantation around Coonoor ,we have seen lots tea plantation during our stay at Munnar.The lots of Silver Oaks view in between these plantation.


Passing through Madras Regimental Cantonment area with shady roads covered with lots of trees we reached our next destination which was Sim’s Park.



Sim’s Park-Its very well maintained Park with lots of different species of plants which can be seen.Special attraction of the place was adjoining boat house with lots of fishes inside the same.I remember even bark of tree look so fascinating and different .

Weather was treat on the day,clouds wetness can be feel inside the car,cold breeze flowing through all directions picturesque sights of mountains.



Doddabetta Peak –Weather glory was already at the peak when we reached Doddabettea Peak.K wanted to see telescope view of the place,so here she to see glimpse of St. Catherine waterfall and some tea garden.We bought some tea from tea shops at that place.(I suggest to buy tea at Tea factory because of price and quality)



Pine Forest and Fern-One more attraction of the visit was pine and fern,got lots of Pine back home(will try out something on them,have plan to fetch some more from Shimla very soon).



Tea factory at Dodabetta was our next destination where we got to watch end to end tea making process from cutting to packaging,got some tea from here too.We bought Ooty special homemade chocolate .


After Tea Factory visit we were done with the travelling of the day,by that time weather was awesome ,clouds can be seen and touched inside the factory,we started little bit shivering too,special thanks for availability of tea at the place to make us cozy.

Evening was reserved was  for my little sweetheart birthday celebrations ,she was full of excitement on watching special birthday party arranged for her at homestay even after lots of travelling for the day.I think cake cutting is most awaited part of b’day for little ones,so made sure she enjoy what she been counting to do for last 365 days.After delicious small samosas and cake ,we enjoyed our little get together with family followed by special Chinese dinner which was awesome.


So it was hectic day full of fun filled and lot of travelling………and My K has turned 5,looks like little big number but she is still my little angel.

Ooty Visit-Khwaish turned 5-Part 1


This year Khwaish has turned five and her birthday been special one with the presence of her grandmother and two aunts with her.So to make occasion more special we planned trip to Ooty to celebrate my little one’s b’day amidst of Nature blessed place.

We made booking in the homestay Marlborough House for our stay in Ooty which was indeed pleasant part of whole trip,big colorful garden in the front of homestay magnifies its beauty with variety of flowers and wooden benches to ease yourself.The whole family fell in love with the place,I would like to specially mentioned the obliging and courteous lady attendant of the homestay made our stay a memorable one ,with her quick services and smile on her face.



Our journey started in the early hours of morning,connecting Bangalore via Mysore highway taking us through Bandipur National Park.We were lucky to witness group of deer,peacock ,langur in the dense forest area.




Once we crossed dense forest of Bandipur next Madhumalai Tiger Reserve was on the way.First came across the view where old lady was catching fish,little strange how in the open she got guts to do fishing in the tiger reserve,must say brave one.



Next interesting story on the way,while crossing Madhumalai forest an elephant blocked the way for 20-25 min ,to and fro traffic was blocked ,in fact we were forced to take car on reverse mode,since these are wild elephant( we had one incident long back while my Waynard trip with elephant trying to come near car and attack while we were clicking its baby pics),so don’t want to take any risk and offend this big creature.With finally elephant moved to Jungle and we were all set free for our continuing journey.



By late afternoon we reached Ooty touching various destination in between ,relaxed ourselves with tea and my hubby after continues driving of 6-7 hours after long night shift went to sleep,in the meantime rest of the family planned to explore the homestay and beauty of nature.

So we had great time clicking beautiful,well maintained garden and lovely family time.End of the day one and little chirping bird saying bye for the day.
