The roads from Bangalore-Mysore-Ooty are really good. Very scenic view, from Mysore to Ooty itself is a great drive. And there are forest, villages, greenery, wild life, hairpin roads, tea estates, misty mountains which will give you a break and refresh from city life. You can feel the fast life which you always deal with slowing down to enjoy a good time. We enjoyed our trip!

The Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) bus started from Shanthinagar Bus Stand an hour late. Except that, the travel was very comfortable and relaxing. They provided water and blanket. But while in return journey they didn\'t provide the blanket as it was day journey. Personally I felt day journey is too tiring and boring as there is not television available in KSRTC Bus. More »

Green Line Travels provided and assured best in class comfortable journey.Travel duration was bit long but since it was an overnight journey helped to take rest for next day big outing in the queen of hills. There is no onboard entertainment facility if you are opting for a sleeper bus. More »

We travelled from Hyderabad to Bangalore by Airavat Bus and next day we travelled to Coorg by taxi, and from Coorg to Ooty by the same taxi. Then from Ooty to Mysore after two days and two nights stay. From Mysore we came back to Bangalore and back to Hyderabad. So about six days of staying with same Taxi and same driver, we developed a personal relation. More »

I have driven many times on this route. This is a very scenic route and once you cross Gudalur, driving is a delight with awesome roads and very less traffic. If you are a driving enthusiast, you would love to take the 36 hair pin bend road which has full ghat section with steep roads. Just a word of advice: Don\'t take this road if you have not driven much on ghats as this will test your driving skills. More »

After so many visits to Ooty, I wanted this vacation to be a relaxed one where I can just lay back and relax myself from the daily schedule. Search started to get a decent resort a little outside the city (was not interested in the normal tourist places like lake/gardens etc as I have seen them...more »
