Here is a list for you - Road Trip from Bangalore To Ooty

1. The Mysore Masinagudi Route


Most people prefer this option for reaching Ooty as the road condition is superb and it can take you just around seven hours. If you start early in the morning, you can enjoy the sunrise at the Kanva reservoir in Ramanagara. The natural settings of the dam in the morning can be breathtaking. Do not forget to have some hot and yummy Tatte Idlis in Bidadi. You can also try the Kadambam restaurant for Pongal and Puliyogre.


Don't forget to visit the Kokkare Bellur bird sanctuary in Mandya to spot some fantastic colorful feathers. The place can be an ideal setting after you take your lunch on the way and look for some walk thereafter. Or else, you can have your lunch on the way at the many highway restaurants of Mysore and thereafter pay a visit to the popular Chamundi hills in Mysuru.  


2. The Kanakapura Kollegal Course


The travel duration through this route will be similar to the earlier one. Hence, try to start your journey early morning. Brace yourself for a small boat ride at Mekedatu that can help you unwind yourself in the morning and revitalize for the long drive ahead.


After all the highway driving for a few hours, it can be worthwhile to visit the Chunchi Falls in Kanakapura on the way that can help you relax for some time. And finally, the serenity of the B.R. Hills on the way can take your breath away on the final stretch to Ooty.

3. The Salem Coonoor Route


It is the least preferred route because the travel time on this route can be fairly more than the earlier ones. But this route can be simply heart-stopping for any nature lover due to its natural scenery. The Krishnagiri Dam can be a perfect location to spend some time after a few hours of drive. After your lunch, try getting a boat ride in Hogenakkal Falls near Dharmapuri that can take away all your lethargy. 


The Yercaud Hills in Salem offers green landscape with narrow paths and one can breathe some fresh forest air while passing over here. The mist and greenery will leave you rejuvenated for all the driving that you have done. Before reaching Ooty, pose for some picture-perfect shots at the Dolphin's Nose View Point that can stay etched in your memory. 


Taking any route is a choice of a person but returning via Mysore route can be full of traffic. There can also be many hairpin bends in the forest reserve areas like Masinagudi, so be careful with your drive. 


Stay alert for all the humps, narrow paths and diversions after the state highways. Also, beware of monkeys on the route and keep an eye on the bypasses and signboards on the way. So, choose a route, plan your journey, and enjoy a memorable trip to Ooty from Bangalore.
