Unforgettable Journeys: Road Trip in The Nilgiris

As I was cleaning out my closet, my eyes fell upon a small album tucked unobtrusively between other books. I began flipping through its well-worn pages and old memories tumbled out. I sat ruminating on one of the best vacations we’ve ever had.

Recollections of vacations always leave a pleasant aftertaste but at times, something singularly stands out. And this one invariably reminded me of how footloose and carefree we had been.

    Nice pics. I have never been on that toy train, something I have been wanting right from childhood. You made me long for a vacation now 😀

    1. Yes, that toy train is worth the ride ! But better avoid it during rains, as there are normally land slides / trees which fall on the tracks which might result in cancellation. And now, you do have to be lucky to book in the first 10 mins. after 8 exactly two months before your travel date 😀

  2. I have been on this Nilgiri train from Ooty to Coonoor. I loved the trip to Ooty in the mountains. Great post, Asha with lovely descriptions and pictures.
