With a couple of days in hand, Coonoor is a perfect weekend getaway from Bangalore. Its specially beautiful if you start your journey early in the morning to beat the traffic of the city. As the city woke up, we were already on our way to experience the greenery and peace of nature. A light breakfast on way and we were at our destination, the Kurumba Nature Resort by lunchtime. The journey itself is relaxing and as you drive into the Nilgiris, the cool mountain air greets you with all its freshness.
It is a delightful drive specially if you want to drive right up to Ooty through Coonoor. We decided to stay put at Kurumba, which is right at the bottom of the hills and drove up to Coonoor and Ooty exploring the mountainside.

As you walk into this lush green serene retreat, you would have left all the humdrum of city life behind. The beautiful clean and spacious cottages located on the hillside have beautiful balconies with an absolute green view of the forests around it. The vegetation is dense enough to hide the...more »

The drive is excellent and very scenic. I drove my own SUV. Have a good conditioned car/suv for the ghat drives. There are many hairpin curves and you will enjoy driving through the mountain. You will pass through many viewpoints and scenic sections of the hills. Have a good music system and songs to give you company. For me my family kept the company throughout the drive.

Coonoor is a better place to stay rather than Ooty. It is very close by and with much less crowd. It is more close to nature and away from hustle bustle. At any point you can also drive to Ooty. You are more near to mother nature and in nature's lap. More greenery and beautiful places.more »

We visited Coonoor again after about 4 years. The roads are better and more facilities are now available en route.

We used our SUV to get there with family and the luggage on the roof rack. We took the Kalahatti (36-hairpin) road. The ride itself was good, with several options for rest stops and refreshments.

Good thing that we did this before the holiday crowd headed into the hills and during the weekdays (we were on the way out when the rest of holiday crowd was driving in).

Ooty in particular is getting crowded and traffic is getting to be a hassle within the town. Good get away if you plan right.

We are in De Rock yet again! And it has been as pleasurable as in our past visits. Charles is a great host and takes personal care to ensure the comfort of his guests. This time I was here with extended family that consisted of people from both ends of the age spectrum. Both the elderly and the...more »

We hired a Toyota Etios car from Savaari. We thought it will take 6-8 hours to reach Ooty from Bangalore but took almost 11 hours. We left at morning 5:30 and halted for an awesome breakfast at Kamat restaurant in Mysore road. We also carried some snacks which was good to munch on the way. There were 2 routes to Ooty from Mudumalai, one very steep around 36 kms and the other 67 km. We took the longer route as the driver himself was not confident of going on the shorter route as it had many dangerous hairpin bends. On the way, you would see several road-side vendors selling water melon, carrots, corn etc. It's worth to wait and have those.

The route is narrow but you do avoid much of the Mysore road traffic. Not a lot of eateries en-route. The route definitely turns scenic post Masinagudi. The Hairpin Bends of Ooty are fun. We chose to take the longer but faster Coonoor -- Mettupalayam -- Salem -- Bangalore route on our way back.
