Tour · Scenic Railroad
Take a scenic ride on Heritage Train, chugging along a World Heritage-listed line from Coonoor to Ooty. The British-built railway that this "toy train" glides along passes through plenty of picturesque scenery: you'll see thick rainforests, rocky ravines, and tea plantations; cross bridges; and dart through dark tunnels. During the hour-long ride, relax and enjoy the view, or take some postcard-like shots of the diverse landscapes. Heritage Train is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , custom trip planner Edition.
