We left Bangalore about 7 Am and had our breakfast at Kamat Lokabiruchi - Ramnagar, on entering Mysore we took Outer Ring Road, this was bit long, however no much traffic. We reached Ganapathi Sachidananda Ashram - Nanajangod Road. At about 1. 30 pm we were at Cafa Coffee Day after entering Tamilnadu Check Post. The Check Post at TN are checking for any alcohol beverages being carried to TN and if they get caught need to shell down the money. As we understand carrying any hard drinks from one state to another state not allowed. Hence please check the rule book before you venture into it.

We had coffee at Cafa Coffee Day and reached our destination at about 3. 30 Pm. We just had some sandwiches since the lunch hour was over.

If you are travelling from Bangalore I would suggest you to take KSRTC bus going Via Mysore as it travels through the Bandipur and Mudumalai forest. You will reach Bandipur early morning and you will get a chance to see lot of wild animals like wild boar deer. Wild Elephant, different species of monkey etc etc which we can never find in a city.

Car travel to Ooty is awesome. We have enjoyed our trip in Ghat Road. Ooty is hill station, car drive gives you nice feel. Since it is my own car I had a stop in between and enjoyed the place fully. On the way we have even visited Mysore and Nanjungood. Nanjungood is very famous old temple.

First thing the driver can enjoy his driving. The scenes by the road are beautiful. The last part of the journey in bit difficult n tiring in the Ghats but this is where you will enjoy the most. The best time to travel in the mornings, you can enjoy the foggy roads.

It was a pleasant journey. The bus would be easiest way to commute I believe. Plan an overnight journey, as it reaches early morning to Ooty, It is a pleasant trip. The bus service is good and worth every penny. We had to get down at Bandipur as there was a strike in Tamil Nadu. Got in another Tamil Nadu transport and reached Ooty at 10 Am. The KSRTC bus usually reaches at 9 Am.
