Today we moved on from Ooty via Kotagiri still in the hills, this was a place my parents visited in 1950 while they lived in Madras. Then we dropped down 2000 metres to the valley below and had a long drive to Combiatore. Apparently Combiatore is the second largest city in Tamil Nadu and it was a place I had not previously come across which is amazing considering how large a city it is. The drive took best part of 4 hours to reach our destination.
View of tea plantations as we left Ooty going towards Kotagiri.

Car spares shop, we were very lucky and did not need any emergency repairs on our three week trip.
Swimming in the pool at the Le Meridien at Combiatore, not trips today but just rested in the afternoon ready to drive to Madurai on Wednesday.
