Escorted Rail Tours to Ooty

Tea plantations and colonial mansions

The popular hill-station of Ooty (short for 'Ootacamund') is located in the "Blue Mountains", also known as the Nilgiris Mountains. Ooty was founded by the British and was used as a weekend retreat for British colonial rulers. It also served as the summer headquarters of the Madras Presidency, as it offered somewhere cooler during the fiercely hot summer months.
