An offbeat hillstation of boarding schools & toy trains

The quaint hill station of Coonoor has been overshadowed by more tourist-oriented towns nearby, yet an old fort and colonial structures set amidst verdant tea plantations, make it a beautiful offbeat destination. Coonoor offers great opportunities for treks and trails in a cloudclad landscape, where tiny roadside shacks offer steaming cups of locally grown tea – an experience for the truly intrepid.
