hello experts,

I am sorry for popping in with a question, but I couldn't find the answer anywhere ...

I want to know if its possible to go on the Nilgiri Mountain Train with a bicycle.

I am currently in Kochi, in the middle of a small bicycle touring journey in south India, trying to figure out where to head next. I'd really want to visit Ooty or Conoor, and it would be a shame if I wont hop on the Nilgiri Mountain Train... so thats why I wonder.

thanks a bunch,
Nimrod

What you could do is, go to a train station and ask the station manager if he could call Mettupalaiyam station (where the train starts it's journey) and ask if the train takes cycles, the station manager may have to call Coimbatore station to get the phone number for Mettupalaiyam station.

I tried... the guy told me the Mountain Train is fully booked for the next week.

that's also a way to solve a problem

thanks for the tip.

I just realized that I'll have to climb the way riding the bike... not a nice thought
