Time saving journey

Oct 17, 2016
Mode of Transport: Train

Train journey was very peaceful. Since it is night journey once boarding can sleep and wake up morning at mettupalyam. The train reaches on time in spite of delaying start.
We had travelled in AC 3 tier. Could reach the destination without tiredness.

Good train to go on time till Mettupalayam. From there we arranged a cab and it was very wonderful experience to travel in the hill. Lot of monkey were there on the way to Ooty it made the children more happy. Lot of viewpoints were also amazing on the road trip to Ooty from Mettupalayam.

Nice trip

Mode of Transport: Train

The train is more comfortable for the journey and it was easy for us to reach Mettupalayam on time so that we can catch the hill train. It is more convenient for the passengers from Chennai to reach Ooty. Had a good sleep in the train and it is more remember able one. Nice trip and had fun.

It's a amazing experience to me, first time I went in the train as long trip and it reached at correct time and its smooth for sleep. I booked sleeper coach and I got the train at almost 8pm and I reached at morning 5:30am, and I never feel the tiredness and body pain. I really enjoyed my trip and as well as same I got the return train for I booked my online timing. Overall, its good trip.

Good peacfull journey with family

Aug 10, 2015
Mode of Transport: Train

It was good peaceful night journey with family. Booked in advance. We preferred night travel so that we can sleep well and spend enough time with family in Ooty instead of taking rest in Ooty. We took food before boarding the train as train scheduled departure was 10:10 PM from Chennai.
