Hi Nahar_SV...

Welcome to Trip Advisor.....

You haven't exactly described as to what you are looking for. It would be easy if we have an idea of what you want. With the limited inputs above, in my personal opinion, you may plan 4 nights in Ooty and 2 in Kodai and have Coimbatore as the base. Toy trains may be a big put off for school going children (while the age is not mentioned) as it may be very boring for them. Instead try doing a Coonoor - Ooty or the reverse trip, just for the experience of it. I can suggest more based on your further inputs.

Regards

Prasanna

That is right !

rather than taking it all the way from Mettupalayam, you can take it between ooty and coonor . for the experience of it
