A Visit to Hill Station

A Visit to Hill Station :

Our school was closed for summer vacations on 15th May. It was very hot in Delhi. My parents decided to go to Niligiris. I too accompanied them.

We packed our luggage and got ready for the journey. We went to Coimbatore by train. The railway journey was rather tiresome. From Coimbatore we went to Ooty by bus. We reached there in the afternoon and put up at a hotel.

Ooty is one of the best hill-station of India. It may be called the queen of hill-station. It has many beauty spots. Next day, after breakfast, we were crowded with tourists form different parts of the country. People were making all sorts of purchases.

After lunch we went to botanical gardens. We enjoyed the expense of horticultural beauty around our heart’s content.

Niligiris has a healthy climate. It is a beautiful summer resort. The mountain slopes are covered with tall, green trees which present a caring sight at sunset and look very grand. The morning and evening hours are very pleasant. A cool breeze sets up and refreshes the mind. It makes one forget the oppressive heat of the plains.

I felt happy in the company of nature. The bright hued flowers, the clouds sailing across the sky and the snow covered peaks of the high mountains in the distance filled my heart with joy.

We stayed there for fortnight. I returned to Chennai reluctantly. The memory of my visit to Niligiris is still fresh in my mind.
