Recalling Pleasant Memories

The Story of My Holiday

A year ago, it would have been better if we’d taken the popular train from Mettupalayam to Ooty, up the great mountains of Nilgiris, for it would have been a more relishing journey than by car. However, booking tickets was a hectic task as there was a great demand for them.

The pictures below are in a chronological order of our tour of Ootacamund (aka Ooty), the Beauty Queen Town of the Great Blue mountains of Nilgiris (‘Nila’ means Blue and ‘giri’ means mountain), Tamil Nadu, India.

After the pleasant trip, left our hearts in so many places in Ooty and thereabouts and returned home with sweet memories.
