Wenlock Downs Ooty Address: 17 km Ooty, Tamil Nadu, India
Lush green grass stretching endlessly and it doesn't seem to end no matter how much you walk. Finally when you find something different in the route it is in the form of another stretch of eucalyptus trees. This is Wenlock Downs for you. No you are not in the 'Realm of Rohan' (from the movie Lord of the Rings). But after seeing the downs you will be forced to believe that the producer could have saved much of his money if he had come down here to shoot the movie. Once renowned for the Udagamandalam Hunt, the Wenlock Downs is now home to the Gymkhana Club of Ooty and also the Government Sheep Farm.
The 80 acres downs also accommodate the Hindustan Photo Films Company. All these do not take away even a little bit of the serenity and peace you get when you walk through the grass. This place is a wonderful hangout for the golf enthusiasts. Wouldn't qualify as a 'must see' place, when you compare it with the natural beauty of other surrounding places, but this is a totally different type of terrain from the Ghats that you see in Ooty. It certainly qualifies as an experience of a life time for those who like to go on long peaceful walks and contemplate about 'life' and the higher entities of nature. The sight of sheep grazing and the endless stretches of grass are sure to give you a lift you are troubled due to some reason.
