Mukerti National Park is very nice place to visit. It's a must visit place in the Nilgiris plateau. The entire place is green and has a very thrilling atmosphere. A a good place to enjoy with family. But did not see any wildlife here a bit of disappointment.

This is good to visit once but not able to see many animals only peacock, Elephant (may be pet one) and dogs. So this visit was somewhat under expectations as it was shown Tigers on big advertisements.

Mukerti National Park - is approx 35kms from ooty and is rough drive taking almost 1.5 hours.

Mukurthi peak is a great place to visit and do a picnic there and it is wonderful scneries is breathtaking you will be lost in the beauty of the place, you need to a special permission from the forest department to enter the national park, the water in the lake is crystal clear and non polluted
