Good roads. Start early and plan to avoid Bangalore traffic. Lots of eating options on the way. Watch out for villages and huge road humps. Difficult to maintain high speeds but the journey can be covered in about three hours. You can visit Srirangpatna on the way. Tipu\'s Palace and Srirang Temple.

Very Good Road and you will get hotels, dhabas on the way. Roads are straight and less traffic. On the way you can visit Sringapatna and people are quite cooperative in guiding the destination. I prefer going by my own car because I can touch a good speed while driving the way.

Nothing unusual here and we were able to do it in approximately 4 hrs timeframe from Bangalore to Mysore! The only thing I hate is the number of speed breakers on this route. But as we had hired a Innova, the ride was relatively smoother. I just wish the new expressway is completed soon making it a breeze for traveling this puny distance!! More »

The train is supposed to be super-fast. But there is crossing all the way where the train stops for many minutes. Finally it reached Mysore by 6:30 P.M. instead of 5:30 P.M. I travelled in second sitting. There is a TV in the train for entertainment. Since I booked for window seat, the Cauvery river branches and the canals were nice to see all the way to Mysore. It was a treat to see the green paddy and sugarcane fields. Nearly 20 different birds I could see. Flocks of cranes and egrets were there in the field. Beautiful sunset was another thing I enjoyed forgetting the late arrival of the train.

The caterers were bringing something or the other constantly. Near Maddur the famous Maddur vadas were available. It looked nice, Rs.10/vada. But the taste was not good. Best bet is \'timepass\' groundnuts. More »

We actually booked it an hour before as it was an immediate plan. We had to travel in general compartment. There are many trains that ply to Bangalore and Mysore so there is no problem. The compartments were not full and we had a comfortable journey. It took around 3-4 hours to reach Mysore. More »
