Dated : 25th to 28th Feb 2017
Ooty is one of my long awaiting trip, I specially kept it for the honeymoon. I booked tickets ahead of my marriage plan.
It is very long journey from my home town so we reached Chennai one day prior and stayed for a day and then started to Ooty.
There is a Nilagiri express starts from Chennai at 9 PM. And can reach up to Mettupalayam(6 AM) . There is a steam engine toy train where the journey would be fantastic to reach to Ooty. It is 5 hrs journey. And can reach Ooty by 12 PM.
I booked a Hotel in Ooty. Its name is Accord hotel, Doddabetta. Auto charge is around 250 INR to reach hotel from Railway station.
We planned for 3 days stay in Ooty. One day we went out cover these places by Cab. It costs 1500 INR for 4 hrs. It is provided by the hotel.
The final day we return to Mettupalayam. The road has very deep narrow bends.
Highlights - Botanical Garden is best to spend at evenings and early mornings. Tea Factory will help to provide you the original brand of Doddabetta Tea.
