Yes, you can take Nilgiri Toy Train or public buses from surrounding cities to come up to Blue Mountain (Nilgiri) hill station. But when you're here in Ooty, land transport can range from Auto, Ambassador taxi & some Mahindra/Tata 4WD.

The auto rickshaw is the cheapest option but need bargain or you'll be totally ripped off by them. Taxi on the other hand is 50% more expensive than auto, but capable to take up to 4 passengers and is protected from cool wind, major accidents and impact from pot holes.

4x4s are mostly for package tour, shared taxi and other tough terrain usage.

Type: Car/Motor Home
