Travel to Ooty on exotic ‘Nilgiri Toy Train’ to enjoy the plethora that nature holds for you. The slow train ride uphill connects Ooty from Mettupalayam, a serene town lying on the foothills of the Nilgiris. The train began its first service in 1899 and since then the bliss has continued. At the speed of 33 kms per hour, this fairy ride covers a distance of 46 kms beginning from Udhagamandalam and takes around 4 and a half hour to reach Ooty.

A traveler on this route can experience a varied geographical scenario ranging from the 7 kms long rice fields that turn rocky and rugged for the further 27 kms. From then on, the route is dominated by 13 tunnels and 26 viaducts. The train reaches Coonoor after a steep climb and reaches the highest point of the journey, i.e. 2128 m above sea level. Soon after, the train takes a downhill turn which provides excellent views for photography.

The entire toy train ride will leave you delighted, thrilled and stunned at the same time. Green stretches of forests, gurgling waterfall and picturesque sights are some of the many attractions that will leave you spellbound.

At just Rs 24 for second class and Rs 142 for the first class, this journey is more than welcoming. You can catch this toy train that runs daily between Mettupalayam and Ooty via Coonoor at 7:10 am in the morning and reaches Ooty at noon. The return journey commences at 3 in the afternoon and reaches Mettupalayam at 6:35 pm. The best time to enjoy this toy train ride is during the summer months of April to May, when an additional toy train is added on the route to accommodate the large number of tourists.

Booking can be done easily through the Indian Railways counters or on their website, irctc.com. It is advisable to book in advance as there is a huge rush during the peak season.

Enjoying a ride on the Nilgiri Toy Train is a unique experience which will get etched in your memories for years to come.
