Traveling in a century old train. Booking early is necessary especially for decent seats in first class - as only few are available. Rack and pinion drive on slopes. Looks to be diesel-steam locomotive pulling/pushing the bogies. Worth the experience to see the hills from the train.

It was a beautiful park in steps with lots of diffrent & very old flora & fauna. Very nicely maintained & all greenery & nature around you transports you to another world with small beautiful trails leading you to scenic points. Definitely worth a visit . Dont miss it at all.

Tucked away on a nondescript hillside, and away from the regular traffic, this estate & factory lie down-slope from the Coonoor-Kotagiri district road, about 2 km from Sim's Park.
The factory is open to visitors with a prior tie-up.
Good for a 30-min detour, if you have the time.
Can buy factory-fresh tea.

One of the typical places to visit when you're in / around ooty. The destination isn't as good as the journey.

Affiliated to some of the top notch clubs across he country this club still retails the old world charm of British days. The golf course facing the club is the highlight of the club against backdrop of eucalyptus laden hill slopes. The landscaping is beautiful with flowering plants. We visited he club for a short while just to walk down memory lane, having stayed there on our several visits to Wellington two decades ago.

Wow I never realised how much there was to learn about Tea! Fantastic experience. Excellent host, who explained everything in fine detail. Beautiful property high in the Mountains. Wandered around the pretty Gardens while a sumptuous meal was prepared by our hostess. The creme brulee for dessert was to die for.

The British used graveyard for their war burials during 19th century. View points around this place are awesome, just breathtaking!

This dam is an age old dam and has been supplying drinking water to Coonoor. With the dramatic increase in the population of Coonoor the dam is not able to meet the demands. The dam is situated near a place called Bettati on the Connor Kotagiri highway. One will have to trek for around 2.5 kms from the main road. Public transport to the place is not available, however private vehicles can go. This is not a must visit attraction in Coonoor and there are larger dams situated in the Nilgris which will be better to visit. The dam is also dry most of the times.
