I want to just say it was an awesome journey from Mysore to Ooty through the forest. It was the extraordinary journey which I can never forget. The road was superb but was scared looking at the valley (the sharp curves) but later felt comfortable and excited.
My friends and I started early in the morning (best time for travelling) from Mysore. We took Mysore - Nanjagud - Gundlupet - Bandipur - Khallatti Ghat - Ooty route, which is most picturesque. Definitely one should visit Ooty with own car so that Ooty can be explored. I strongly recommend people to take a break in Bandipur Wildlife Sanctuary for a Jungle Safari.
Excepting Gudalur route, all other roads are good, so guys be careful on Gudalur Route. Another very important point to remember is forest roads are closed between 9 pm to 6 am.
We went to Ooty from Mysore and my aunt stays there. We went to Ooty by my aunt's ca. Ooty is not very far away from Mysore and itís about 125 kilometres away from Mysore. It took two hours to reach Ooty. We did not stop at any hotel or dhaba as we want to reach their quickly. I had a great trip we enjoyed our two hours short trip.
This route has:
Kozhikode-Mysore-Kollegal Hwy/NH 212 and Coimbatore - Ooty - Gundlupet Hwy
Itís a mixed opinion as we traveled through KSRTC bus, as no train facility from my place. Half way down itís a good but as hours pass it gets boring. Overall itís a nice experience for us. Best time for leaving ooty is early morning I guess. After we pass Karnataka boundary itís hardly we find any proper food. So we should be prepared for it.
I boarded an AC bus to Ooty from Mysore it was a Volvo. The journey was relaxing it took six hours to reach Ooty. The scenery was very pleasant as we upped the hills it is better to go by volvo as it is a powerful vehicle and also very smooth there are not much volvo buses from Mysore I did not get a bus as soon as I went to the bus stand.
