Nilgiri Mountain Railway:
Situated at an approximate height of 2,600 meters, Ooty stands tall amidst Nilgiri Mountains. The Nilgiris Toy Train connects Ooty to Mettupalayam. The construction of this line was a mammoth task particularly because of the hilly terrain. In the year 1854, the first plan was to build a mountain railway from Mettupalayam to the Nilgiri Hills. This railway is regarded as a marvel in the field of engineering. The train itself is an extremely charming bluish beauty with large windows and wooden coaches. Travelling in this train is one of the best things to do in Ooty.
