Expect more and more you experience! Prefer a monsoon season, to fill your eyes lush green beauty. the Breath taking experience contains only the feast for eyes rather than usual fear or nauseous hill ride.

Enjoyed the ride by sitting back to the signal guy. Didn't get the tickets in ooty, but got them from coonoor to ooty where there was not much rush.

Any tourist who comes to visit Ooty wants to travel by this train. This train has an interesting history apart from the vintage charm that it exudes. The Nilgiris toy train connects Ooty to Mettupalyam at the foot of the Nilgiris.every one must ride.
