After we finished our dawn safari and had breakfast we packed up and had a short but interesting drive to Ooty which is high up in the Nilgri hills. We had to climb 36 hairpin bends and we passed lots of broken down cars at the side of the narrow road. In place we passed through some cloud and mist and then we would see a glimpse of the drop at the side of the road.
Shortly after we left Bandipur we went past some farmers with two teams of oxen getting ready to start ploughing.
It was a step road and we soon went though mist and clouds.
For all we were climbing up into the hills the landscape was still very lush and fertile.
