Green Therapy in Coonoor ~ A Photo Story

Coonoor is a quiet little hill station, about 280 kms from Bangalore  and 20 kms from Ooty. Its a beautiful place for green therapy, idling around and watching the world go by. I spent a weekend staying at the cosy Tea Nest property soaking the Green Therapy in Coonoor.

I woke up to the sounds of the chirping birds at the crack of dawn,Green Therapy in Coonoor Dawn

Why do we need Green Therapy

Sometimes in life we are so caught up with our daily chores and schedules that we forget to appreciate nature in all its forms; sunrise, sunset, chirping birds and the trees around. The easiest excuse for the harbingers of development and modernization is to cut down trees and reduce the green cover around us. Green is soothing, it heals our tired eyes and soothes our soul. Next time, you are feeling restless, just go ahead and indulge in some natural green therapy.

    • Thank You. I stayed at Tea Nest which is in a tea garden and has a nice exploratory tea menu that I had also written about. It is bit of a rustic place so may not be suitable for children. Great to walk around in the tea gardens and not too far from the station. Ideal to spend some quiet time. There is a Taj there as well which is supposed to be good. The Tea Nest owners have another property – Kurumba which is 14 Kms away from town.
