Good for early morning trip. Afternoon and evening ones are very stuffy and humid. Maybe because I travelled in end April. Take a short trip Ooty to Coonoor or Coonoor to Metupalayam. The whole trip will tire you out as it lasts 5 hours.
Though the pain of standing for more than 1.5 hrs in the queue for ticket was too much, it could not be healed completely because of hot climate. We were expecting a real excitement in toy train journey. But the overall experience of journey was just satisfactory. While returning from Coonoor we preferred own vehicle after a lovely foggy view... 更多
We traveled in this train from coonoor to ooty. Try to get a window seat facing the station entrance. Train passes through few small tunnels, nilgiri trees and besides tea estates. View from the train will be very good. Grab a chance whenever possible to experience this.
Had an interesting experience when we traveled between Coonoor and Ooty last week. The train tickets were available - we had to queue around 1 hr before the train time to get tickets. We did get 1st class tickets, which in hindsight did not make much sense, as they are far higher than the 2nd class tickets and hardly offer... 更多
It is pretty slow ride, than only you will have a opportunity to enjoy and feel the nature. very pleasant, colourful and fresh travel. keep adequate water and snacks. In so many movies they have shown this train, but you got to travel to experience it. Note: Don't fall asleep during journey. means you wasted your money.
Took it from Ooty to Coonoor. The ticket sales start 45 min before departure. Ticket sale is limited to 4 per buyer. Pretty organised the way they de-board and board ppl. Most ppl are tourists who want to enjoy heritage ride and become part of history. Decent seating and space. Avoid travelling with too much luggage. Dis-appointment was with engine.... 更多
Recommend this only if you have the 1st class reservation. If not, the experience can be horrible. The train departs at 9am,12am and 2pm from OOTY to connoor. U can buy the tickets 45min before by waiting in looong que. The ride itself is unpleasant due to the fact that they try to cover every last inch with passengers. If... 更多
First recommendation is to try to get a reservation online for the journey if possible. The other option is to buy a ticket at the station around Rs.10/- issued 45 minutes prior departure - the main point is buy ticket and immediately stand in queue inside the station - as that's the order in which one is allowed to get... 更多
We were able to get tickets only for the Coonoor Ooty part of the journey . A 1.15 hours ride, we thoroughly enjoyed it. It was wonderful to see quaint stations along the way...time almost seemed to stand still in these places. The view was lovely and overall a very nice experience.
Its an amazing journey.. specially from Mettuppaalayam to Coonoor.. the second part Coonor to Ooty may be avoidable.. Please book the ticket early as possible.. specially for a window side seat.. the route.. its through the scenic film locations.. The first part contains bridges.. tunnels.. The steam engine runs only in first part.. Please note: the main factor is this... 更多
Niigiri Toy train journey is very wonderful and full of elation for the children and adults as well. The World Heritage Site accreditation has been granted by the UN for this unique journey scenario. The farther side from the platform has most of the picturesque scenes throughout the journey. One should not miss this journey from Ooty to Mettupalayam. Deep... 更多
