Awesome ride. Able to see many scenery in the travel. It went in the caves, mountain side of the Nilgiris, Steam Engine ride was awesome. Awesome ride. We came as couples so we enjoyed a lot. Children will like the ride. We have taken photos.
We had started the journey from Coimbatore Airport to Ooty, it took around 2 hours and 30 minutes. We did enjoy during the trip and also cab driver guided us about the tourist place.
We took the break for tea and snacks in a coffee point. We had seen all awesome hills scene. We were used the sightseeing the Ooty and Cooiner also using the same cab. It was a very lovely place. The weather over there is very pleasant. Overall it was good experience and enjoyed a lot. Thanks for making such type of events !!!!
The journey by car provided us with an excellent view of the blue mountains. The waterfalls, the tall trees and the animals ( Monkeys and Langoors ) ( there was a rape of a baby monkey by an adult full grown one !Seriously!) we saw that, poor baby monkey ! But it was disappointing not to see any Ooty special fruits anywhere during our journey.
Journey through car at the morning time by 6 am was like flying through the mist. This also makes a feel of travelling to Shimla. But this was not up to riding a bike on the queen of hills. My choice will be the bike when compared to any other vehicle.
