The drive from Coimbatore to Ooty is a nice and relaxing drive. As soon as you cross the Mettupalayam the hills start and the road become a little tricky but the view starts becoming better and better.

The road is very good throughout and has a few hairpin bends but the drive is a experience of a lifetime.

I'll suggest that you carry your own food on the way as there are not many good places to eat along the way but once you reach Coonoor which is 25 km before Ooty, you'll find a lot of good restaurants and hotels if you have to relax.

The drive generally takes around 2. 5-3 hours.

The Ghat road starts from Mettupalayam which is about 50 km ahead of Ooty. During non season, the ghat road is used for two way traffic, ie, both up and down. But during summer season this way is allowed only for going up and the return journey is permitted though the Kodagiri route. The quality of road is very good on both the ways.

The travel towards Ooty via Kotagiri gives you an excellent experience and mind-blowing breathe. If you are an avid traveller, you will lose away in the bliss on this journey if the traffic is not hectic. Valley view and the stretch near to the aravenu is excellent like driving in another paradise with almost a stretched view of more than 1. 5 Kms.
