The bus was OK, but the scenery after a few km from Mysore was great; bus goes through wildlife sanctuary and if you are lucky, you might see herds of elephants. Plenty of monkeys, deers, though. You would pass through rolling tea gardens, and plenty of green forests. Food availability enroute is limited and it is better to carry your beverages and pack in some sandwiches.

If you go by car very nice experience, its 125 km from Mysore, the roads are very nice you can travel, very good speed in between Ooty and Mysore Bandipur forest, and in Ooty when I am going at the time full fogs covered, its better for car to travel. Roods are small, if you go by car it's a nice journey.

We started early morning from Mysore. The road till Nanjangud is under construction. After Nanjangud, it was a good journey through Bandipur National Sanctuary(KA) and Mudumalai National Park (TN).

We traveled via Masinagudi. This road is meant for expert drivers. There are about 36-38 hairpin turns on this route. As it is on hill terrain and visibility of the vehicles may be a issue, would advise drivers to use horn. The road is good and beautiful scenery around. We reached Ooty within 4 hours.

While returning we came by much longer route, because we wanted to visit Pykara waterfalls. The road was very bad and was in shambles, at least till we reached Mudumalai National Park. We had to travel very slow. It took us almost 7 hours to reach Mysore.

Memorable trips with many risky you, we are afraid also. Many places our car was refusing even to climb and we all were very much scared. But luckily the car took us to the hotel without any problems. It should be avoided travelling by car.

We had a pleasant journey but did not get to see much at night. The bus was clean and the seats were good. The bus was not A/C nor did we need the same as the climate was quite good. The journey was mostly through the jungles between the two states of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. The greenery is evident once the journey begins but we miss it as it gets dark. It is worth waking up early to see the scenes from the window. We were fortunate to see an Elephant, which is considered lucky also. We were satisfied with the transport as we wanted to be fresh to explore the hill station.
