We arrive into Coimbatore this morning and drive to Mettupalayam where we check into our hotel. The rest of the day is at leisure to explre the local area or to relax.
Early morning transfer to Mettupalayam railway station for the Nilgiri Blue Mountains railway toy train to Ooty. At a maximum speed of 33km/hour, this ‘toy train’ treks across plains, plantation and forest clad hills. The 16 tunnels and tall girder bridges on the way, along with the breathtaking view, make this toy train journey to Ooty, something not to be missed! Beginning at Mettupalayam, you cover 46kms in 4 hours, enjoying the view along the way. The train is unusual in the fact that the engine pushes its carriages rather than pulls them along.
There is no sightseeing included at Ooty but the vehicle will remain at your disposal for sightseeing the nearby places.
Drive to Coimbatore for your flight to Chennai. Upon arrival in Chennai, transfer to the international airport for your onward flight.
