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 »

Travel started, by booking a Taxi and the car was SUV 7+1 Seater. And the journey started from home by early morning around 6:00 AM from our home. And car was brand new in SUV 2014 model, with superb comfort. By the way, our entire family was in that car. My dad, mom, brother with his wife and one child, and second brother, and I, so it was totally 7 People plus the driver. Driver was good and he was well-mannered. And his driving was great too. Not over speed and no unwanted over takes. So journey from our residence towards Ooty started and we picked route Via Mysore. So that route Via Mysore goes through the Wild Forest. So that was certainly a best route to be picked when you are going out to explore the beautiful nature and creation.

So we reached Mysore nearly about 10 am-11 am then we picked the route which is under forest authority which is the way towards Ooty. So the road was two way road but single road without a divider but the road was well-maintained and superb smooth. And while travelling we saw Elephants, Deer, Monkeys and some small small animals. There were areas where it gave warning that its the area of lion but we did not see them.

Then by 1:00 pm we reached our hotel in Ooty. Journey was great but slight tiredness was there. Then we got refreshed and then had lunch from hotel and then relaxed for a while. Then evening we went to see the beautiful garden, and also the boating we did. We enjoyed the weather climate in Ooty, cold with little drizzling of rain and also clouds hovering around the mountains, its just the perfect experience to be experienced us or train.

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.

We had taken Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) bus to travel to Ooty and it was nice trip in the bus as we can see the bus going from deep forest. And it was a nice trip, the bus was full when we travelled and only 2 halts were there, when we reached Chikmagalur forest area, the bus was stopped till 5.30 am till the sunrise to happen and for the 4 hours the bus was stopped at the gate in front of the forest.
So travel before 11:59 pm to cross the forest area or wait for five hours till the sunrise to happen.
