The entire hill station shows up uncontaminated, leisurely grace, giving it a truly serene sojourn. Coonoor is certainly less commercialized and has a more expectable weather conditions. The drive to Coonoor is enjoyable breath-taking and serves through meandering track ways. This picturesque hill station makes an ideal place for lovely honeymoon destination, the sprawling tea gardens and the lush green hills. The sight of several bungalows, with smartly designed lattice windows and amazingly trimmed lawns, gives Coonoor a paradise-like feel.


How to Reach

Coonoor has NO direct flights. The nearest airport is Coimbatore around 70 kms away. However, a proper international airport is at Bangalore, which is 300 kms away.

 

The Toy Train route!

Coonoor sits on the Mettupalayam to Ooty meter gauge railway section. From Ooty there are a couple of trains running towards Conoor. However, from Mettupalayam, only a single train runs towards Ooty!

 

Please note that from Coimbatore ONLY one train extends to Mettupalayam. Train enthusiasts should note this point before chalking any itinerary.

 

Coimbatore & Bangalore are the real rail-heads having connections to major cities.

 

By Road

Buses & taxies are the other options to reach Coonoor. By road Mettupalayam is 35 km away and Ooty just 21 km.

 

Toy Train Trip Advisory

Being a user oriented portal, we have the pleasure to inform that:

  1. Whenever traveling from Mettupalayam to Conoor, ensure you take the left-hand-window-seat! The right-hand-window-seat faces the hill and almost zero views.
  2. The single trip from Mettupalayam towards Conoor means the train is always crowded. We recommend you to spend a little extra and get a First Class ticket. Comparatively, it is manageable.
  3. The railway runs at painstakingly slow speeds and more often locals easily climb inside and jump out of the bogies anytime. Sometimes this shakes the small bogies unsettling other visitors.
  4. If on an itinerary, plan your Conoor trip on your return journey from Ooty. The Mountain Railway runs half a dozen trips to Conoor and some of them are connecting trains, which wait till your train arrives.
  5. Majority tourists travel one-way to Coonoor by toy-train and the other by bus.

 

Best Time to Visit

Coonoor is a mid-altitude hill station where frosts are rare when compared to Ooty. Weather is welcome throughout the year and people return singing praises. Monsoons are a tricky proposition but those daring people also enjoy the exquisite environs.
