We hired a Figo self drive car from Zoomcar. It was affordable and we took the car from Bangalore. We went through Mysore, Bandipur Forest, Mudumalai Forest, Masinagudi, Ooty. The ride was really superb. We started by Friday night at 11.30 pm and reached Saturday morning by 8-9 am. There was a check post near Bandipur Forest which opens by 6 am to 6 pm after that they close the gate. We stopped for a safari ride in Bandipur Forest. The ride through the forests was very nice so go slow and enjoy the forest greenery. There was check-in when you enter Mudumalai Forest. They have many speed bumps so drive cautiously and enjoy the splendid view.

Located near Ooty Railway Station and Bus Stand this place is really good. We got the hotel just like that when we were searching for rooms and we were happy about finding this place. Nearby there are also petty shops and also a Hydrebad biriyani shop. Biryani was little pricey but i liked the...more »

Condition of bus was good. Bus was in perfect time during departure and arrival. They also provide blanket and water bottle to each passenger. Though had a good experience. Driving was perfect by the driver. Though you can have a good site view during early morning from the bus while going towards destination. You can experience full Mountain View and waterfalls also when you are in bus.

It was the worst bus service ever and I travelled using AC sleeper service which is nothing but a normal bus converted into AC service by adding AC. Open window which will allow you to adjust yourself in the cold. Provided blanket is very very thin and small so with open window you will not be able to have a comfortable sleep the whole night. AC will be started for one hour and you'll be able to have sleep in that duration only. Even staff is so rude that when I have asked them if they have spare blanket they replied "Hum nahi rakhte, jake company walon se lo" -"We are not keeping take it from company". Overall it is a pathetic operator.

It was our second trip to Ooty in the first week of 2015. We stayed in Astoria Residency for 3 nights in family suite room and experienced a home like environment. It's not a big hotel but rooms were designed in such a way that it can meet everybody’s expectation. You have different categories...more »

Upon quick thought we decided to visit Ooty on Christmas weekend. There was no availability of hotels still my wife's persistence made me to venture for Ooty trip. The route through Bandipur was quite and calm but try to make this part of trip by morning as the view is quite refreshing. Due to the frequent speed breakers you can't go beyond 2nd gear so calculate sufficient time for this part of the travel. The route through Mudumalai is little bumpy. Beware of the charging trekkers which will come to you with deadly speed and without intimation.
Try to take little brake before you try to go 36 hairpin bend as this will put tremendous pressure on your engine if you are going in mid segment cars.

In Ooty finding convenient hotel was very easy. Do not be based on online portals for checking hotels availability. In Ooty all the time hotels are available. Only you need to be little adjustable .

Try to Visit Dolphin Nose via Wellington (Army City). The journey is highly refreshing.
The Avalache Lake which is 40 km from Ooty gives you breathtaking view. Little trekking to Mukruthi River sideway is advisable if you want short trek sideway via river .

Return via Mudumalai through Guddalur in the evening is specially encouraged as evening 4-6 pm you can see lots of wild animals.
