Sleeper if travelling with elders

We booked AC sleeper at manish Tours boarding at Anand rao circle at 10 45 pm. It reached Kalpetta by 5 30 morning.
Bus was very clean and neat, however due to ghat road the quality of sleep was poor. There is only one AC sleeper and since we were travelling with parents and two kids we preferred via this bus. It also has sitting seats available.

Beautiful roads offering excellent views

Aug 4, 2016
Mode of Transport: Bus

Though the bus departed late the irritant was removed once we crossed Mysore. The bus enters what promises to be a wonderful journey through thick and verdant forests. You become one amongst the winding roads and forest. Nature at its best. The staff made up for the delay and were very courteous. Would certainly recommend the bus.

Relaxed trip and a nice drive

Apr 15, 2016
Mode of Transport: Taxi

We left real early at 5:30 am to beat the city traffic on Ugadi day via Mysore Highway. We reached Mysore by 8 am had breakfast and carried on via Gundlupet to Sulthan Bathery via Muthanga forest. We got to spot a lot of elephants in Muthanga. The journey was really nice and green, esp on entering Mutunga and onwards. Traffic from Sulthan Bathery to Kalpetta was pretty heavy but route was very good. Road conditions by and large, good except nearabouts Nanjangud.
