I booked through Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) bus services for going and coming back. I found the bus service was very good and before two hours of my journey time I got sms bus number from the KSRTC bus service and same thing while coming back. Travel was good. They have given water bottle. We rest stops 3-4 times during the journey.

"Travel to Munnar by bus is really horrible"

I travelled to Munnar by bus on April 1st by SRS Travels. No problem with the pick-up time, but destination is horrible. As per SRS travels, they have to reach Munnar 6:30 Am. Due to hilly region we can accept at least one or two hours delay, but on April 2nd we reached Munnar at 11:00 Am! Horrible!. Yes because of hilly region travel time will be more, but at least travels should inform the passenger about this before. While climbing the hills, they will not allow any passenger to have breakfast also, as for some people vomiting will happen. But reaching the destination at 11:00 Am without having anything from last night is very difficult. That too if we are travelling with children then it is horrible.

It's a beautiful journey from Bangalore to Munnar via Udumalpet. Its really awesome journey from Udumalpet to Munnar approx 85kms. This 85km travel is inside dense forest with very narrow curvy road. You may get chance to see some deer etc. Carry a plastic carry bag because you may feel vomiting during this journey. And the scenery when you are about to reach Munnar is great. Full of greenery with all tea estates on both left and right sides. You feel really cool when you about to reach munnar. Natural greenery natural fresh cool air. All that you need !!!!!
