Excellent travel, the kind of bus that our KSRTC is opted for the hill station like ooty is more appreciable and an awesome travel. Good seats and amenities like blankets were very good and halt at Mysore is very good and at right time. Best about the travel is in the night bus leaves the station by 10.30 and reaches the destination at the scheduled time early morning and the day is not wasted any where or time in travelling. Travellers must carry the water bottles.

We hired a Figo self drive car from Zoomcar. It was affordable and we took the car from Bangalore. We went through Mysore, Bandipur Forest, Mudumalai Forest, Masinagudi, Ooty. The ride was really superb. We started by Friday night at 11.30 pm and reached Saturday morning by 8-9 am. There was a check post near Bandipur Forest which opens by 6 am to 6 pm after that they close the gate. We stopped for a safari ride in Bandipur Forest. The ride through the forests was very nice so go slow and enjoy the forest greenery. There was check-in when you enter Mudumalai Forest. They have many speed bumps so drive cautiously and enjoy the splendid view.

Located near Ooty Railway Station and Bus Stand this place is really good. We got the hotel just like that when we were searching for rooms and we were happy about finding this place. Nearby there are also petty shops and also a Hydrebad biriyani shop. Biryani was little pricey but i liked the...more »

The bus was non AC sleeper. On the way from Bangalore to Ooty, the curtains in the bus were small, and hence could not cover the seat length, and created boarding
disturbances. On way back to Bangalore from Ooty, there was none as such. But we felt that, there should be some blanket or some bed-sheet provided by the bus service, since we reached Ooty and as we departed from Ooty, we felt really cold (even in April), since both ways the bus timing in Ooty is bound to be cooler (i.e. early morning you reach, and late night you depart). So, in this case, adding one more item to your back-pack can only be an option. Carry a blanket or shawl to help yourself.

Some Tips
If you like lemon tea, you will enjoy at all the stalls you visit. They prepare good and is available at all the tea stalls.
Be ready to trek down and up, somewhere heights and somewhere lows to walk through, plain areas would be lesser. Accordingly choose your attire etc. Be sporty to enjoy more of the Ooty places.
You can buy chocolates and tea, as is famous from here. Especially chocolates (home made ones) are relatively cheap than the same outlets outside the city.
You will get many, to click photos for you and very experienced too.

Three days for Ooty and near by visits was more than sufficient, as we felt.

My wife and I went to Ooty last month. Though I don't have much driving experience in mountain driving nevertheless I thought of driving the car. Bangalore to Ooty road distance is about 270 km. We started at 6:30 am in the morning and took the Bangalore-Mysore-Ooty Route. We reached Mysore in 2.5 hours and took a 40-45 minutes break for breakfast and then continued our journey. There are two popular routes to Ooty once you reach Bandipur, one via Masinagudi (with steep climb and 36 hairpins) and the second via Gudalur (bus route). The first route is a shorter route and is about 30 km less than the one via Gudalur. But the Gudalur route is more scenic.

While going to Ooty we took the Masinagudi Route, I was bit worried about the hairpin turns but it was an excellent experience to drive through the hairpin turns. All the turns and numbered and there are mirrors to guide you about any vehicles coming from opposite side and since this route is only for light vehicles, it wasn’t much difficult to navigate through the route.

We reached Ooty by 1:30 pm; we already had our hotel booked at Sinclairs Retreat, which is 10-15 km uphill from Ooty Town. But it has some breathtaking view to the city centre. We were in Ooty for two nights. Next day we hired a taxi for city tour and Coonoor trip. We took the toy train from Ooty to Coonoor, this is a must take for every tourist travelling to Ooty and while returning from Coonoor the taxi driver was waiting for us at Coonoor Station.

Next day morning we started our journey back to Bangalore, this time we took the Gudalur Route. This route has many site seeing points, where we stopped intermittently and continued our journey. This route takes longer time as it is longer and buses are also there. The return journey was bit tiring nevertheless we enjoyed the trip and would love to go for such short trips in future as well.

Its a very nice experience to travel to Ooty from Bangalore by road. The scenic beauty is worth experiencing. If you start early in the morning you will be able to enjoy it the most. I always prefer to travel by own car to avail the opportunity to stop and have some quick refreshment whenever you feel like. Road is good except few patches after Mysore. The road through Madhumalai forest is narrow but nothing much to worry about. One should plan to cross the forest area during day time.
There are two routes to Ooty one is through a number of hairpin bends and the other is a flat road but takes about 35 km more. Ooty is the most favoured destination and is ideal for 2-3 day trips from Bangalore.
