It is the highest peak (2634 metres) in the Nilgiris Hills and is located at a distance of about 10 kms from the Ooty bus stand. The name ‘Doddapetta’ means ‘big mountain’ in Badaga/Kannada language. Lying at the junction of Western and Eastern Ghats, this peak offers beautiful views of the Nilgiri mountain ranges and a spectacular view of sunset.
On a clear day, one can also see the distant plains of Mysore and Coimbatore. The Tamil Nadu Tourism Development Corporation provides telescopes at the Telescope House using which a closer view of the distant hills like Chamundi Hills, valleys and forests can be taken.
