Although I connect to each of the above blogs very much, the first one in the list is of great importance to me and a favorite of mine as it is so intimate to me and I connect to it emotionally since it is a place which moulded me spiritually where I grew up playing with the neighborhood kids too.
A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to one and all!! 😀
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.
