Kotagiri is a good locality nestling in the blue hills of the Nilgiris at 2000 meters, Kotagiri is a lovely little town still remaining of its old world charm. It enjoys the best climate in the Nilgiris and at one time, it was said to have the second best climate in the world. The same Ghat road winds its way up from Mettupalayam though of course, today one travels by motorized vehicle. One will almost certainly see a tribe of black faced Nilgiri Langurs frolicking by the side of the road near the second of its four hairpin bends. After dark, the lights of Mettupalayam and surrounding towns of the plains make an enchanting and beautiful fairyland. Historical interest in Kotagiri is John Sullivan’s house at Kannerimukku. Nature spots are Kodanad view point from where there is breathtaking view of the mountain ranges, the tortuous course of the Bhavani River and the plains of Coimbatore district, Catherine Falls and the Longwood Shola, which harbors many rare and beautiful plants and birds. Tourist spots are Nehru Park and Pandiaraj memorial park. Kotagiri can also be reached from Ooty (28 km.) and Coonoor (20 km.) both very beautiful drives especially when the bright yellow Mimosa, the brilliant scarlet wild Rhododendrons or the pristine white dog roses of the beautiful blue Jacarandas are in bloom.
