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.
