Trivia and Fun Facts about Ooty - Sterling Holidays
  • The blue-and-cream Nilgiri Toy Train (Nilgiri Mountain Railway) connecting Ooty with Mettupalayam at the foot of the hills is one of the few remaining steam locomotives in the world today. It was added as an extension to the World Heritage Site of Darjeeling Himalayan Railway by UNESCO in 2005. The train is popular for its four-hour journey through the beautiful landscape, and has been the setting for many movie scenes, including the famous song Chaiya Chaiya in the movie Dil Se.
  • The kurinji is a blue flower that blooms once in 12 years and envelops the mountains around Ooty. Some believe that's the reason why the mountain ranges are called the Blue Mountains.
