No proper sign boards and no route maps. Thus it becomes difficult to find out the place without taking help from the local people. Need to put some sign boards on roads. Advertising is necessary. From Ooty roads are good. From Coonoor one should ask locals to head to proper road. If Coonor railway gate is closed than you will be late by few minutes.

Onward journey was via Kalhatti Ghat, which was very steep indeed. I had a good time. You should be really careful with occasional traffic jam. While coming back it rained heavily and Kalhatti Ghat was closed and we had to take the route via Gudlur. Though it is scenic, drive was slow due to lots of traffic. What takes less than 45 minutes via Kalhatti Ghat, takes 2-3 hours in the heavy traffic via Gudlur.

Start early from Bangalore and drive along the Mysore road till you get to the Mysore Ring Road. From here you can either take the bypass or go inside the city onto the Nanjangud route (I prefer this route). Go along the route via Gundulpet-Bandipur-Madumalai Forest and from here either take the Masinagudi Route or go along the Gudalur Route to Ooty. If you take the Masinagudi Route you'll have to climb up driving through 36 sharp hair pin curves and if you are not an experienced driver either don't take this route or drive carefully without stopping on the steep inclinations. However, the Gudalur Route is more relaxed and you'll enjoy the drive, though the roads are not in that great condition. Once you reach Ooty, Coonoor is only 17 km from there. Also, you'll be able to see a lot of Nilgiri Trees along the way to Ooty and Coonoor.

The route is very good in the morning and had a good experience all the way to Conoor. The forest and the mountain curves are beautiful all the way. There are many dhabas on the way too. You can enjoy the different tastes of food. Carry medicines, that would definitely help you.
