The biggest thing I consider while travelling, not to be stuck in materialism. So is the circumstance in Ooty, a small town of the district Nilgiri in Tamil Nadu of India.
This Hill station was found in 19th century by the Britishers to conquer the scorching heat. Thus moving in the country side was the best option for them. Hence, the most remarkable of all the architecture comprises the buildings by Britishers.
1. Ooty Lake
Our excursion in Ooty was two-dayed. We started with the Lake, It’s beauty is really mind blowing. The waves in water shone with the partly setting sun. We could see the green hills in the image formed on water on which the migratory ducks were also paddling. Clouds of different shapes gathered.
Usually I feel sick when I try motor boat because of gazing the same waves rolling again and again. The beauty which appears initially soon disappears as soon as we shift from the boundary.
But this wasn’t the case with Ooty Lake, as there was much more to see. Even air was bothering us just to show it’s presence. Travelling with family is really an enlightening process.

3. The Train Ride
This was the most joyous experience, I ever had. Had I omitted to visit any of the tourist attractions, It would have been okay. But, had I missed the Ooty to Coonoor train ride, I would have regretted the whole life. Just having an opportunity to sit inside idly is a virtue.
This train is also known as toy train because of it’s small size. To get the ticket you must seek the Udhagammandalm (official name of Ooty) Railway Station. Then you can reach on time for getting the comfort of the chair car.
I bet that you won’t feel the same enthusiasm if you travel in car. Throughout the Journey, you come to see marvelous scenes which won’t let you doze off. I’d like to recommend that you wear full sleeves or carry some warm clothes as the wind blows very cool. It will take you in 45 minutes.

You can meanwhile notice in the way that all the railway stations coming in the way are all blue.
