Nilgiri Mountain Railway

Nilgiri Mountain Railway (NMR):

Nestling among the Nilgiri Hills of Tamil Nadu, at 2,600 m above sea level, is the "Queen of Indian Hill Stations"- Udhagamandalam (Ooty).

  • The train starts from the town of Mettupalaiyam and thus begins a journey full of twist and turns, as this Metre Gauge train ascends 46 Km on its way to the hill resort of Ooty in four and half hours.
  • The toy train treks across the plains, the plantations and the forest clad hills.
  • The 16 tunnels and tall girder bridges on the way, along with breathtaking view, making it a ‘not-to-be-missed’ journey.
  • The only Rack-n-Pinion section on the Indian Railways.
