For covering major tourist places,you require 1-2 days in Bengaluru,1-2 days in Mysore,2 days in Ooty & 2 days in Kodai.

Bengaluru-Mysore is well connected ny trains & buses.From Mysore you can visit Ooty by road.Ooty-Kodai can be done by road or by train from Coimbatore.

The nearest railhead for Kodai is Kodai road station & is connected from Bengaluru as well as Coimbatore.

Linda let me cover the communication part as duration is already covered in other post. All the place you have mentioned is very well connected except one Ooty to Kodai kanal. For rest of the places you have very nice volvo buses and your best bet in KSRTC.

If you start from bangalore your plan should be like

Bangalore ---> Mysore-->Ooty-->Kodaikanal--> Bangalore ..

Except Ooty to Kodaikanal .. rest all places are covered by KSRTC. Check the offcial website for more details.


From Mysore to Ooty though there is plenty of buses you can avail a private taxi. Benefit is you will cover Bandipur and Madhumalai National park in any case. You can avail safari also if you have private vehicle.
