Hi suresh_sargar,

welcome to Tripadvisor

There are three ways of going from Coimbatore to Ooty 1) go to mettupalayam and catch scenic toy train at 7.10 am and reaches Ooty 12 noon

Or there are frequest buses from Coimbatore to Ooty 3 hours

Cab is fastest 2.5 hour click for taxi cab http://www.fasttrackcalltaxi.in/index.aspx

Hi suresh_sagar...

Welcome to Trip Advisor..

It would be easier to suggest if you can indicate what you mean by feasible here. As Alen_10 has suggested, you have 3 options but to improvise that, your inputs would be required.

If you reach Coimbatore by 7 AM, the option of train is ruled out. You need to reach the Mettupalayam Road Bus Depot from where you will find plenty of buses. You may take a chance at the Gandhipuram Depot, which is nearer, but the chances are minimal. Hence, you would have to take a call taxi or auto or town bus based on the baggage and the group to reach the MTP Road Depot. You will find buses with half an hour once frequency.

Hi Suresh,

You can take the Mysore buses and alight at Bandipur or reach Gudalur, from where you might go to Bandipur. There would also be the travel vans which ply this route, which you can also consider.

Prasanna
