Enjoyed the ride in Ooty road. It was very interesting to drive on those roads. The best route is to travel by Coimbatore or Kallati road if travelling through Mysore. Almost from Coimbatore it will cost 2000 INR Max. And from Mysore 3000 INR. Would like to visit again and again.

my friend and me rented a xylo car to travel to ooty for the first time. Driver was a friendly guy. he showed us many spots of attractions in ooty. We have travelled on a Sunday. So the traffic is slightly heavy. We chose Coimbatore - Coonoor - Ooty road while we travel uphill and returned back in Ooty - Kotagiri - Coimbatore route.

It was slightly drizzling on that day ,with lot of clouds in the sky. As there was moderate traffic we travelled very comfortably in the car. My cousin's family came along with my family. We parked in three places while we were traveling up the hill to enjoy the scenery.

Travelled via Mettupalayam and the drive was great. On the way back, I have seen toy train, (steam engine) running parallel to the road and that sight was wonderful. Also I spot a rare lankur monkey. The drive may take a bit longer than due to hairpin bends, but it is worth the drive.
