Doddabetta, literally translating to big mountain, is the highest peak in the Nilgiris, standing at a height of 2,637 m. About 10 km away from Ootacamund bus terminus, it lies at the junction of the Eastern and Western Ghats. On clear days, Doddabetta Peak provides panoramic views of lush landscape. Doddabetta mountain is spotted with dense sholas, ferns and eucalyptus plants. Hordes of tourists make a beeline for the Telescope House set up by the Tourism Department at the peak that gives a bird's eye view of the entire district. The Dodabetta Peak has been well-kept by the authorities and offers a great view particularly of the Hecuba, Kattadadu and Kulkudi summits. Don't forget to tote your camera as you are likely to find good photography opportunities.
