As I mentioned in the previous blog (The Mighty Nilgiris, Tribes and the British), the Toda tribe is one of the early tribes that inhabited the Nilgiris and they have their own unique lifestyle. Today, there are only less than 1000 people in this tribe who live in around 7 different villages in dif
Tiger hill is a famous tourist destination in Coonoor and our plan was not to visit any famous tourist places since it tends to get crowded and most places offer a very limited experience if it is the view of the valley or others. But, Coonoor is a very small place and it was easy to walk to places

Spending my time in the Nilgiris district of Tamil Nadu, I was interested in learning more about the early
2019 was a year I am truly happy about the places I visited and writing about them. Choosing four posts out of them is actually very confusing since all the posts are attached to many good memories. But, these are the posts I would like to say as my favourites from 2019 and entries for the contest.

The Ooty toy train is one of the experiences many visiting Ooty look forward to. However, these heritage train tickets get sold out months in advance. As I promised in the previous blog about the train museum and how I DIDN’T get the ticket, this blog is to share those little hacks you can try if y
In the previous blog I already mentioned about the toy train that runs in the Nilgiris. The famous heritage train is from Mettupalayam railway station to Ooty which offers a great view on a 5 hour train journey. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a ticket from Mettupalayam to Ooty.
