Stick to the regular route.

Hyderabad --> Bangalore --> mysuru --> Ooty.

Can be done in a single day, start early in the morning from Hyderabad.

Hi Abdullah,


This can be done in one day for sure, but by the time you reach Ooty it will be night. I suggest you to stay in Mysuru for the night and start to Ooty next day early morning.

This way you can have good scenic view of Bandipur forest and try avoiding hairpin route, take the other route which cuts through forests if you are travelling with family.

Hi @Abdullah baig, The above route mentioned by shiva is the best choice you've got.. But, As @sai86 was suggesting, I recommend you to take the road from mysuru to ooty during the daylight as the ghat section in that stretch is quite risky but if in case you start off early around 4 a.m. from Hyderabad, you will reach Ooty by the evening before day lights closes down.


Hence I suggest you to start early by 4:00 a.m. so that you would reach your destination by 6:00 p.m. Hope you have a safe drive.

please advice best route traveling from hyderabad to ooty


Route A
Hyderabad --> Bangalore --> Mysuru --> Bandipur --> Theppakadu (Take a left) ---> Ooty


Route B
Hyderabad --> Bangalore --> Mysuru --> Bandipur --> Theppakadu (Go straight) --> Guduluru --> Ooty


Route A : You will come across 36 hairpins curves which are fun to drive and risky when the vehicle is fully loaded. On this route you wont find any big trucks and bus.

Route B : Regular route, which is mostly followed by commercial bus and trucks.

I would suggest you to take Route A which is most fun to drive.

  • Hyderabad to Ooty is doable in a single day. 
  • If you want to enjoy Bandipur forest and explore some places en-route, take a break at Mysuru.
  • Start early in the morning from Mysuru and cover Bandipur forest safari.

      I did not travelled for three months and the traveller in side me is thirsty.
      Few plans to West Maharastra and Goa with friends did not materialised.
      I had also planned a trip to Chitrakote falls with family friends but they were afraid of travelling in Chattisgarh.
      It was late night of 27th July, 2018 Friday and I was desperate to go to some place.
      I asked my wife and son Shall we go to Chitrakote Waterfalls? They said yes.
      Rough route plan was with me. No bookings for night stay made. 
      Got up early on 28-07-2018 Saturday and started from Home by 5.30 AM and reached Warangal by 7.30 AM.
      I know the route up to Eturunagaram before Bhogatha and I know very well that once we cross Warangal,
      it is difficult to get any food. So we had Breakfast at Hotel Ashoka, Hanmakonda, once my favorite. Entered in to Mulugu road (from here entire roads are 2 lane) by 8.30 AM. 
      Our original thought was to come back in the same route from Chitrakote but it proved wrong.
      Initially we thought of seeing Bhogatha falls in return journey so as to reach Chitrakote early.
      By 10.30 we were at Bhogatha Falls cross road and its only 1 Km from there. We thought lets have a look without wasting much time.
      It proved to be good decision.
