Out of the hills to the plains and the coast

Our descent from Kothagiri to Coimbatore was long and careful, giving us plenty of opportunity to savour the breath-taking views and realize the magnitude of these. NilGiris mountains.

Monkeys were everywhere alongside the road and jumping from branch to branch.

The cool air remained in the hills and Coimbatore was hot, dusty and a bustling metropolis with over 3million people going about their daily business.

Our train was just 30minutes late, and despite the packed platform, the carriage was not full. Some like to bring a full meal along even though there is plenty to buy from the stewards during the almost four hour ride.

Rice paddies en masses along the way!
