I travelled in taxi from mettupalayam. It was a good route but with many curves. No proper hotels on the way and it is close to 1. 5 hours journey.

First half of the journey is normal.but as soon as you enter Bandipur, the scene changes drastically.You can see herds of Deer in the jungle. If lucky, you can see Elephants taking bath. Then as soon as you cross Bandipur, you reach Madumalai. Another wildlife reserve. roads are a little bad in this stretch of around 5 km. Once you cross Madumalai, you reach Gundulpet, the start of Nilgiris. after that with every passing minute the temperature goes on decreasing and the landscape turns from good to great. I bet you cannot stop saying WOW!!! after every curve.

Stopped at great view points for hot tea at road-side tea stalls, chocolate tea is popular, Bandipur Forest stretch is best. We started from Mysore by 9 Am, reached Singara Estates by 2 Pm with short tea breaks, coffee day visit at Ooty.

On the way back, the Bandipur Forest road is 'one-way', we had to take a different road that hits Gudalur area. The road is narrow, but the scenic beauty is too good with variety of flora and fauna including variety of Bamboo trees. But, slight curvy, hence giddiness and puking sensations could be there for some.

I took the NH7 and NH47 route, though it is longer, it is a lot quicker with wider roads without any speed breakers (like the ones on Mysore Road). It took around 7 hours with stops for breakfast. There a tolls on this road which consume the maximum time.

Reaching Coonoor from Bangalore was not that difficult. We reached Mysore from Bangalore a day before and stayed over night. Next day morning 7 we took bus from Mysore to Ooty. After reaching ooty we took taxi to Coonoor. Taxi charged us 950 from Ooty to Conoor which is 30 km.
