The place is rustic & serene with Nilgiris Mountain in its backdrop. It was decent place with clean rooms n toilets and some activities. Don't expect a luxurious resort, this place is meant for true jungle experience. We stayed in Family cottage, which had 2 double beds and 2 toilets. The room was clean. The lunch was ok, with hot chapathi, rice, sambar, some veg curry, chicken gravy but no desert. They have a TT table, Badminton court, volleyball court, which can be used for cricket as well. At dinner, we had special menu as requested, since we were the only guests there. It was delicious and wholesome unlike lunch and we did eat really well that night. All in all, a true jungle experience here at Forest Hills. Great location, good food, wonderful service, clean rooms in a good managers hand. This place is indeed a nature lovers paradise. But i have to warn you, this isn't for fainthearted.

Once we found it we started off again, unfortunately we didn’t see many animals, all we saw was their poo and heard them squawking. We heard Forest Chickens and saw Sloth bear poo. The guide says it was ...

Our next Ooty expedition was to the boating lake, which was quite a walk and a bit tricky for me as my heels have started developing fissures that on pressure are painful. This is quite a common problem for flip flop wearers in India, with so much dust here drying the feet out.
At the lake there was a boathouse area drawing in the crowds and there we sojourned, hiring a rowing boat which ...
... us first - wanted to become the Collector! Smart kid. We learnt that Toda girls names end with "sin" and boys with "kuttan". Most of them ate chicken and fish but not in their traditional munds where eating meat is taboo. The little girl in pink has typical Toda features. You will see a lot of Todas who look like her.
