We, started morning time from Coimbatore and we enjoyed our travel because on the way we saw some places like Pannari Amman Temple and there were 27 hairpin bends. Riding was such a good experience and weather was also good. We saw some wild animals on the road.
The Karnataka state government bus has not enough place to rest the legs comfortably. Need some more good seats since the road is bad. The motel where the bus stopped is not a good one. The department should do some more arrangements in this regard. It's a non stop but after crossing Tamil Nadu border it becomes like a local town bus.
Reached Mysore via Sathyamangalam, Nanjangud and returned via Ooty. Driving through hills was an excellent experience. Fresh air and good road was worth mentioning. Most of our travel was during day time. We stayed in Mudumalai on the way. There were lot of restaurants on the way.
This route has:
Coimbatore-Ooty-Gundlupet Hwy and Kozhikode-Mysore-Kollegal Hwy/NH 212
Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) quality is good and all their buses are good and they are good in keeping up their timings and my first preference for a long distance route is always KSRTC Airavat as it is the best bus in KSRTC till now.
There are good and bad drivers but as of now in busses which I have travelled they got me safe to my destinations till now. So I prefer KSRTC as the best for those who are travelling towards Bangalore and Mysore.
It’s an excellent ghat driving experience by seeing elephant, cheetah, monkeys, deers, with holy Nanjundeshwarar and Bannari Amman. My favourite visiting time is at the time of rainy season which will bring blossom of your journey and you may feel like a heaven’s journey. TamilNadu and Karnataka shall be two states but it’s because of this hills and mountains and animals and us its becomes unity in diversity that’s India.
