A popular but crowded hill station in the state of Tamil Nadu in southern India.It was a retreat for the British during summertime in the days of the Raj.It is too touristy and crowded during the holiday season.The best time for a visit is during the winter months of November ,December and January when hardly any tourists arrive.
The Botanical garden is a must see while here.Also don't forget to buy some local tea and medicinal oils before leaving the town.
A heritage train that is more like a toy train.Kids and adults can enjoy a scenic ride in the mountains.First class is how you should travel to beat the crowds.Many local people also use the train to get to nearby towns.
