Road was very nice. During travel we saw very nice jungle and plantation. Best time to travel is morning. We have hired a cab for travel from Bengaluru to Ooty. We have hired Toyota Innova car for the same. We would like to travel again by this route with our friend circle. All facilities was available during travel like fuel, restaurants etc.

It was a good drive, except at the last phase through Bandhipur towards Ooty, do not take this road if your car has less road clearance. The roads are not good between this place to Ooty.

You can take a deviation for Ooty on Bandhipur road itself through Masinagudhi, which is more better compared to this road of Bandhipur to Ooty and has around approx 30 hair pin bends towards Ooty.

It is quite long distance from Bangalore to Mysore and than to Ooty, there are no good restaurants on the way. So we must keep good amount of eatables with us. The Wildlife Sanctuary is quite good between Mysore to Ooty but we must cross it before 6 Pm.

Ooty is the nice hill station to visit. I travelled to Ooty with my friends. I recommend everyone to travel through KPN Travels since it provides comfortable journey. It is better if you reach Ooty early before sunrise and watch the sunrise there. It is better if you travel through A/C bus. The journey was quite comfortable. There were a few stops in between. They play latest Bollywood movies in KPN Travels. Charging mobile facility is available for everyone. Never travel without proper woolen clothes, since its clod while travelling.

We started from Bangalore and took Nice Road and took Mysure Rood. Bangalore was full of traffic but then Mysure Rood was nice, so many hotels and many things are available on the way. Nice jungles and small hotels are available. So many vendors on the road and roads are in good condition.
