Its an amazing to travel to Ooty in your own car. You can enjoy the forest, mountains views. Which was just amazing. I suggest people to leave early morning if you are planning your trip to Ooty from Bangalore. You must be there at Banipur Forest and enjoy the safari ride.

We took, KSRTC from Bangalore to Ooty (which was on time and comfortable) and Sam Tours and Travels from Ooty to Bangalore, the later one got cancelled and we got to know 5 hrs before the planned departure time, which spoiled our last few hours plan and we spent that time finding another means of transport.

If you visit you can start from Bangalore early morning and reach Ooty by evening. On the way you will get Muthumala Wild Life Sanctuary. Don't go for Wild Life Safari with the private jeep service they will cheat you . Roads are good, two three view points in Gudalloor Ghat Section. Please take utmost care while driving thru this Ghat.

No TV, blankets, water and no controls of A/C. all A/c controllers are broken. Sets are not comfortable. Started very late and dropped vary late. KSRTC (Government) bus service is far better then this. I don't want to choose this bus service again, simply go with KSRTC is better.

No need for an introduction for this place. One of the top hill-stations in India. I have good experience in this destination. Our eyes will chill when we see the clouds passing through the mountains. We went by Greenline Travel and it was good. Try to avoid non A/C bus. Visited Rose Garden and Botanical Garden.
