Explore the Hills by rail - Nostalgia revisited
The Hill Railways of India are widely scattered and varying in character. Bound on the North by the greatest of mountain ranges, the Himalayas and by the notable detached ranges such as Nilgiris in the South India, and the Western Ghats overlooking the West- Coast, the grandeur of Hill Railways in India is unmatched. A Steam engine hauls the train up slowly, huffing and puffing all the way. The heritage and history beckons the travelers worldwide.

These trains, operating on narrow-gauge tracks - hence the name toy trains - laid during the British days, link stations in the plains to hill stations and offer a laid back experience, where passengers can take in the diverse mountain scenery at leisure. Some of these routes are:
» Kalka Shimla railway
» Darjeeling Himalayan railway
» Nilgiri Mountain railway
» Matheran light railway
» Kangra Valley railway
