However the food was mediocre and there were very less options. The only starter available was Pepper Chicken Dry. So we were forced to order it. Along with it we ordered Chicken Biryani and Pepper Chicken gravy. The taste of the starter and gravy was similar (obviously, since both were Pepper Chicken) and the biryani was below average.

So after this, it was a bit late for us to go up to the falls and hence we had to cancel our plans (Disappointed).

Even research says that Ooty lake is the dirtiest lake in Tamil Nadu(Ooty Lake). I am afraid that if protective measures are not taken immediately, this lake has the potential to become India's dirtiest lake. For places like Ooty where the major revenue is tourism I feel that the government and municipal bodies have to make sure that the town of Ooty is kept clean. Last year, there was a cleanliness drive (Check out this article) but yet people have not learned from these drives.They banned plastics a long time ago, they should probably ban throwing garbage, peeing and spitting on the roads. This is a serious cleanliness and health issue. What Ooty was, and what it has become is really sad. This ban against throwing garbage, peeing and spitting should not be specific to Ooty but the whole of India. As it is ladies and young girls are scared to visit India because of innumerable eve teasing, molestation, rape and murder cases. Let’s not deteriorate our tourism revenue further. If each one pledges to keep their own city clean, this country will be a much better place. This 2017, let’s all pledge to keep our surroundings clean wherever we go and continue this pledge for all the years to come. Travel is just not a leisure and luxury, it is a responsibility. I urge you to be responsible travellers. And teach your children and their children the same. Let’s promote a greener and cleaner India. Let the tourist spots and all the cities and towns in the country sustain for the generations to see their beauty. PROMOTE SUSTAINABLETOURISM!
