While in Ooty, DO NOT miss this experience! Make sure to book your tickets in advance through IRCT. We booked our tickets pretty much in advance, and hence got the best seats of first class compartment, wherein we had a 180 degree of view. We could actually see through front as ours was the first compartment which had windows in... 更多
The Nilgiri mountain railway was an interesting experience. It's slow, fun and offers a great view! It makes it's way through vales and dales, mountain sides, small tunnels, providing it's passengers with a joy ride. The trip from Ooty to Coonnor is recommended. Published Train timings are not very reliable and is always advised to check with the station beforehand.

There is a lovely feeling of community that develops with your... 更多

Must do when... 更多
This particular train is popularly known as Toy Train. This has become too popular because of various bollywood Movie scenes shooting (Fight scene of "Main Tera Hero" etc). This is what you can experience a marvelous example of engineering in old days too. Don't expect luxury in this train. Only basic wooden seats are there. Scenic beauty wise offer very... 更多
