Description ~ Hotel Sinclairs Ooty
Ooty is one of India's most popular hill resorts, located at 2240 metres above sea level in the Niligiri Hills of southern India.
Established as a `hill-station' during the British rule, it retains much of its quaint colonial charm, while offering panoramic views, delightful nature walks, as well as numerous modern attractions and facilities. Ooty abounds with major tourist attractions: rolling meadows; stone walled churches with stained glass windows; acres and acres of tea plantations and an artificial lake-all these a must on every tourist's itinerary.
Ooty offers a breathtaking view of the blue Niligiri hills, the botanical gardens with large banyan trees and an incredible variety of ornamental and exotic plants. And, of course, the village of the Todas, where one can strike a bargain to get chunky silver jewellery. From Ooty, one can visit Coonoor, or for those given to adventure, a visit to the Mudumalai wildlife sanctuary will be recommended.
With its exotic scenery, deep ravines and enchanting sunrises and sunsets, Ooty has become the first choice for tourists, honeymooners as well as a business conference venue.
Hotel Sinclairs Ooty has 88 beautifully appointed rooms and suites, wall-to-wall carpeting, satellite TV, direct-dial telephones, attached bath with hot and cold running water and room service. It also enjoys the distinction of being Ooty's only centrally heated hotel.

Both fly-fishing and spinning methods could prove an adventure to fish hunters. Trout fishing with a fly or spoon is a very enjoyable sport and fish from 200 gms to 4 kgs, can be taken. Rainbow Trout, Carp Masheer, Wallugu Attu, Murrel, Carnatic Carp, Catfish are mostly found in the Moyar River and in the Bhavani above Parelli Dam. Though spinning proves a much more successful method for Trout, Fly Fishing can also be fun. Licence to fish can be obtained from Manager, TN Fisheries Development Corporation at Bhavanisagar and also from the Asst. Director of Fisheries, Fishdale, Udhagamandalam.
The Nilgiri's have a wide and varied wild fauna and flora which is noticeable especially in the case of avifauna. Birds are generally classified into various categories, with Nilgiri birds however falling into the hill bird class. The Nilgiri Verditer, a Sparrow sized blue bird, is the most conspicuous of the species as it is not only a fine singer but
also performs a conspicuous perch. The bold black and orange fly catcher, though bold elsewhere, is rather shy in the Nilgiris. The Nilgiri laughing thrush, a member of the thrush family, is less visible as they stick to the thickets, but they give themselves away with their sporadic bursts of maniacal "laughter" in complete disregard for harmony. Bulbuls are active noisy and are among the sprightliest of the lot. Their loud clear whistling calls attract attention to themselves. Nilgiris woodcock, the orange minivet, the Malabar whistling thrush, the southern grackle or Hill myna, and the red tailed drongo, the fairy blue bird, malabar trogon, the shama and Raptors, Lizard Hawks and large eagles are found in the Nilgiris.
For trekking in and around Ooty, one must get prior permission from the following authorities.

Gymkhana Club's 18 hole golf course is located at a height of 7400 ft. With a par of 70 over 6207 yards. The golf links are laid out over an area of 193 acres of the Ooty wenlock downs. The Ooty Golf course follows the soft contours of down land with its tonsured effect of tree-bare heights is not only scenic but also quite trying, and it would be wise for the visitors to play only nine of the 18 holes on the first day. The Ooty links are lush but tight, and greens are large and well maintained
