Transport between Wayanad & Bandipur (August 2012) question


We are visiting South India in August. We were planning to visit Wayanad for a couple of nights and then go onwards to Bandipur for one night, before going on to Mysore and Bangalore. We are struggling to find information on transport between Wayanad and Bandipur - either bus or taxi. Is this journey easily possible? How much would the estimated cost & time be?

Any help would be most gratefully appreciated.

I have traveled recently from Wayanad to Bandipur. Night time travel is banned in this road. You can get buses as well as hire a taxi. I was traveling in my car so I do not know about the fares.

You can hire a cab from Wayanad for your trip to Bandipur. However, you will end up paying an entry tax of Karnataka for this.

1. You can do a day trip from Wayanad, which is one way close to 2 hours. If you take a cab from Wayanad is around 1500/100 Km + Driver Bata + Entry Tax. Addl to 100 km would be Rs 8 extra.

2. Or you can take a cab at Mysore for your use at Mysore and also for a day trip to Bandipur. Journey would be close to 2 hours.

Feel free to revert for any other clarification.
