We opted to travel by the tourist steam train up the mountain instead of by bus or jeep. I hate getting car sick. And I love trains. The train had just begun a new summer schedule so there were special gifts and everyone was super excited. Whenever we went through a tunnel, everyone would yell.
At first we saw the mountains in a distance, then we climbed them. We saw waterfalls, monkeys, a wild elephant, purple trees . . . and tea plantations.
