Other places of accommodation in Coonoor
There is a toy hill train between Mettupalayam Railway station and Ooty. It passes through Coonoor. The journey from Mettupalayam to Coonoor using this train is a picturesque one and the tourists can have a beautiful view of the valley and hills around. The journey takes 2-3 hours as toy train has a slow speed.
I would recommend to use this train for those people who want to visit Coonoor/Ooty.
