I love to drive the route was good via Sathyamangalam road to Charmrajnagar then Nanjangaud then reaching Mysore. Foods are available in sathy nd Charmrajnagar during travelling up to Tamil Nadu border roads are verry good but when entering in Karnataka roads are not good which creates problem for smooth driving Govt. Should think for good road to reach tourist place from Tamil Nadu.
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.
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
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.
