Holidays are really funtime. They are the best time to travel.
“ Travel opens your heart, broadens your mind and fills your life with stories to tell. “ goes a famous saying.
I asked my father to take me somewhere interesting and different. My father assured me to take me to a hill station to experience the beauty of nature and thus goes with our plan.
Plan for Vacation
We planned to go to Ooty when the summer holidays were nearing. My father booked tickets for the Steam train so that we can enjoy the hill travel. As the days were nearing, my mother made all the required things ready. She packed Sweaters, Scarfs and some dresses for stay. We planned to stay there for four days. My Aunt and Uncle accompanied us. I was getting more and more excited. The day finally arrived.
From Coimbatore, we went to Mettupalayam Station and boarded the Steam Train with all our packages. In the morning time, the climate was excellent. The trip was through the hills watching the tall trees, small waterfalls, passing the bridge, tunnels and seeing the fog. As we climbed up, the chillness increased and we enjoyed the nature around us.
Places to visit
On reaching there, we refreshed ourselves in the room booked for us. First, we went boating in the Ooty lake. We preferred the pedal boat and enjoyed the ride there in the lake. Outside, I had the horse ride which was always my longing. The horse man took me round the lake and I held the horse strongly with much fear that it should not run away. Finally, I finished the ride with pride as a king.
Next day, we went to the Ooty Botanical Garden and saw varieties of flowers. Flower show was getting ready and we had a glance at the arrangements there. We enjoyed eating corn in the cold.
Things to experience
After that, we visited the Tea factory and saw the procedures shown there and had a taste of tea too. Next, We went to the Chocolate factory, saw the various steps done and finally tasted the Chocolates too. Then, We went to Doddabetta Peak which is the highest peak of Nilgiris and enjoyed it there.
Final day, we went to the Pykara Falls and enjoyed the beauty of the water. Then to the Rose Garden, where the flower show was going on. Various shapes were arranged in flowers like Motu Patlu, CoronaVirus, House, Violin, etc. I was just amazed to witness all those decorated fully with colorful flowers. This sight was the most interesting one for me in the whole trip.
The next day, we boarded the return Steam train again and came back to Mettupalayam and finally to Coimbatore. It was my first trip to a hill station. I really enjoyed it a lot. The trip helped me to admire nature. My summer holiday trip to a hill station was really a memorable one.
