Tamil Nadu beyond the temples: Nature

Live in a Wild West themed farm or hike to the top of the third highest waterfall in the country

A farm resort
The views of the Queen of the Hills without the crowd of mesmerised visitors to her court make Destiny, a ranch-sized property, an excellent adventure for young families visiting Ooty. The farm inside the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve, 25km from Ooty proper, has horses, cats, rabbits, rams, guinea pigs, geese and also a Moo House. The food is surprisingly lavish, with homegrown exotic vegetables. You could go camping, fishing by the natural reservoir, trekking to a picnic by the Avalanchi lake — if you manage to tear yourself away from the views out of your living room. There is no liquor licence, so BYOB; but there is a spa menu. Accommodation options here are an endearing mix of Wild West and ethnic motifs. Note that you cannot drive there; you will need a pick up by Shaktiman, so don't turn up unannounced. Doubles from Rs 4,975 with breakfast; littlearth.in
