To get to the southern parts of Kerala from Kochi, or Cochin, we had to take the night train and travel along the Nilgiri Mountain Railway which will take you over the Nilgiri Hills and into an amazing green landscape.
The blue train was stuffed with goods, goats and people and people were literally hanging out of the windows when we departed the station of Kochi.
The view from our window was amazing and I couldn't believe how colourful the landscape, filled with green fields, palm and fruit trees, was.
We decided to book a cabin as the ride took a few hours but most of the Indian people stood for hours in a pretty crowded train compartment with a few wooden benches for the mothers and elderly.
It was an amazing and unique experience and I would recommend taking the night train to anybody ready to be surprised by these amazing landscapes!
