Welcome onboard Sailaja.

I would suggest the following plan:

Day 1:

  • Hyderabad > Bangalore > Mysuru 
  • Stay at Mysuru for the night
  • Day 1 is going to be little hectic, Start early in the morning at 5AM


Day 2:

  • Mysuru > Bandhipur > Ooty
  • Visit Mysuru place by 9AM in the morning.
  • Palace opens at 10 AM, crowd will be on lower side. 
  • Drive down to Bandhipur, do a forest safari. 
  • You can easily spot deer and elephants 
  • Once safari is done drive down to Ooty

 

Day 3:

Day 4:

  • Drive to Coonoor and stay at Coonoor
  • Or relax at Ooty

Day 5:

  • Drive from Coonoor to Mysuru
  • Start early in the morning, you may spot wild life en-route.

Day 6:

  • Mysuru to Coorg

Day 7:

  • Coorg local exploraiton

Day 8:

  • Coorg to Hyderabad 


I would suggest you to avoid Coorg during summer.
Temperatures are very high in Coorg

 

Let us know the no. of days, so that we can provide you all the details.

Don't visit Coorg in summer.  It is like any-other city. On the up side resorts are cheap in summer. 

 

Also for Ooty visit, try to reach Ooty on a weekday. It is have less crowd. 

Summer holidays + weekend is a dangerous combo. Plan accordingly. 

Bangalore to Mysuru road will have high traffic. Keep safe distance and drive cautiously.

You can refer my Travelogue for Bangalore Mysore Ooty 

 

Please be Noted that Bandipur is closed between 9:00 P:M and 6:00 A:M 

Gudalur route is bit safer than 36 hair pin road and also longer distance 

Expect fair amount of traffic on ghat sections and here G Maps helped us a lot where it was showing distance the on coming vehicle in opposite direction is 

Do try to Visit Himavad Gopala Swamy Betta on the Way to Ooty from Mysore  - Around 10 km from Gundlupete , it falls towards right before Bandipur forest while heading to Ooty from Mysore .

Wishing you a Happy Journey

We did Hyderabad to Coorg in one single leg around 7 years back, started early around 4 am and reached Coorg by evening before dark. Followed below route:

 

Hyderabad -> Anantour -> Doddaballapura (this bypass BLR and  connects you to the Mysoor Higway) ->  NICE Ring Road -> Mysuru -> Coorg

 

Till Doddaballapura it was a non stop drive after that we took many break for lunch and evening tea. We covered most places in Coorg, Golden Temple (a bit far), Elephant Camp (again a short drive away).

Coorg is too hot summer. My suggest is to visit only Ooty and skip Coorg.
