Excellent travel, the kind of bus that our KSRTC is opted for the hill station like ooty is more appreciable and an awesome travel. Good seats and amenities like blankets were very good and halt at Mysore is very good and at right time. Best about the travel is in the night bus leaves the station by 10.30 and reaches the destination at the scheduled time early morning and the day is not wasted any where or time in travelling. Travellers must carry the water bottles.

We hired a Figo self drive car from Zoomcar. It was affordable and we took the car from Bangalore. We went through Mysore, Bandipur Forest, Mudumalai Forest, Masinagudi, Ooty. The ride was really superb. We started by Friday night at 11.30 pm and reached Saturday morning by 8-9 am. There was a check post near Bandipur Forest which opens by 6 am to 6 pm after that they close the gate. We stopped for a safari ride in Bandipur Forest. The ride through the forests was very nice so go slow and enjoy ...Read More

Early on a Monday morning last week we set out on a short family vacation from Bangalore to Ooty in our Ertiga. As usual the Bangalore-Mysore highway was crowded even at 7:30 AM making the city stretch a cumbersome exercise. However, once on the freeway the going was fairly smooth. My 21 year old son was at the wheel for the first leg up to Mysore. Breakfast at the midway point food court in the A2B joint was quick and simple. We avoided the city troubles by taking the ring road at Columbia-As ...Read More

My wife and I went to Ooty last month. Though I don\'t have much driving experience in mountain driving nevertheless I thought of driving the car. Bangalore to Ooty road distance is about 270 km. We started at 6:30 am in the morning and took the Bangalore-Mysore-Ooty Route. We reached Mysore in 2.5 hours and took a 40-45 minutes break for breakfast and then continued our journey. There are two popular routes to Ooty once you reach Bandipur, one via Masinagudi (with steep climb and 36 hairpins) ...Read More

Its a very nice experience to travel to Ooty from Bangalore by road. The scenic beauty is worth experiencing. If you start early in the morning you will be able to enjoy it the most. I always prefer to travel by own car to avail the opportunity to stop and have some quick refreshment whenever you feel like. Road is good except few patches after Mysore. The road through Madhumalai forest is narrow but nothing much to worry about. One should plan to cross the forest area during day time. There ar ...Read More
