Mettupalayam

Coimbatore (Manchester of South India) is 34 km by road from Mettupupalayam. The nearest airport is in Coimbatore which has regular (Air timings) flights from
Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Calicut, Chennai, Cochin, Hyderabad, Jammu, Mumbai, Pune, New Delhi and Sharjah. Mettupalayam is the starting point for two of the Ghat Roads into the Nilgiri Hills. Subsequently it has established itself for the trade of fresh fruits & vegetables coming down from the hills and also for produce that grows in the plains and is destined for the hills. Fresh produce from here is supplied to most parts of Coimbatore district.

For a magnificent view of the hillside covered with forests, a train journey from Mettupalyam to Ooty is recommended. This narrow gauge mountain train winds through 46 km of forests, tea plantations, 16 tunnels, and more than 250 bridges, starting from Mettupalayam on the plains. Moving at a pace little faster than walking, the journey takes four and half to five hours, but is more compensated by stunning views. Black Thunder a water theme park located 3 km from the town that attracts many tourists.
