About Trek to Shooting Point

Don’t let the name scare you. ‘Shooting Point’ is the name given to this beautiful meadow because of its popularity as a location for the shooting of many film scenes. Surrounded by hills, this picturesque pasture is also great for picnics and photography. The ‘Shooting Point’ can be reached by foot. The trek is not too difficult and won’t take too long (not more than 1 km). The calm surroundings make the trek enjoyable, and the view from the top is just stunning. It is an ideal activity for couples, families and even work groups. For the prefect day out - you can pack a meal, light jacket, bottle of water, a camera and your favorite book and begin your trek. Just don’t be surprised if you see your favorite local film personality running on the hills in a very slow, yet rhythmic manner.

Pro Tip: There are several shooting points in Ooty. Treks are organized by various local travel agencies.
