Hi

Bangalore and Mysore are very well connected. Trains, Buses, Cabs are quite frequent and you can choose.

Mysore to Ooty is only on the Road and you choices are limited to Buses or Cabs. Nothing like having your own cab on this sector, for it passes through Jungles and through excellent scenic stretches on the ghats.

Bangalore does have a few self drive options, but you may want to rethink this for two reasons. (1) It is a long weekend and i can bet my bottom dollar that the hills and roads are going to be filled with traffic (2) The distances are short and you are better off hiring a cab (eg, Mysore - Bandipur is about 60Kms, Bandipur - Ooty around 35 Kms, Ooty - Coonoor around 25 Kms).

Hope this helps

regards

Hi V_run,

For Mysore-Ooty travel by road is the option as no direct train to there. Getting a cab for this route is the best option. From Bangalore you can get self-driven car. If you are choosing self-driven car,book it soon.Otherwise you won't be able to get one as that's a long weekend.

From Bangalore-Mysore you 'll get ample no of trains,buses.

By Bus, it takes around 6 hrs to reach Ooty. If it's taxi, then 5 hrs max.
