I prefer non A/C sleeper bus as you can relax, get fresh air and can see the mountain beauty through the open window. SRS Travels is offering this service but it needs prior booking. KSRTC buses were comfortable enough as the journey time is 6 hrs hardly. The seats were in good condition no on-board entertainment like movies. Bus had ample amount of charging points. They provided the blankets and water.

The Journey was awesome. We got the opportunity to see Live animals while passing through Bandipur National Park (BNP). The best part was when everyone stopped because an Elephant's Family was passing on the road. The only bad experience was damaged roads after crossing BNP.

Go in short cut, you will get 36 hairpin bends, which are very adventurous & petrol pump is not there from Gundlupet till 85 km to the way to Ooty. Tamil Nadu check post people will check for the liquor bottle as it's not permitted. En route no picnic, no feeding to animals at Bandipur and Mudhumallai tiger reserves.

The bus was late to start and reached the destination late. It was a comfortable bus with good seats. There were no mobile charging points. So, please keep your mobiles fully charged before boarding the bus.

I would also recommend people to carry food items along as the places where the bus stops for refreshments has bad food with high rates.

Bus arrived 1 hour late, no blankets were given as mentioned on the website. No proper stopping point for passengers to have refreshment. KSRTC feels they are doing favour by allowing people to travel in their bus. But any how they are still better than private operators who are even worst.
