Guys can someone please suggest the route and pit-stops to Ooty from Hyderabad and best place to stay in Ooty

I'm planned to go on 16th December 2018

 

 

Welcome on board  Kishor. 

Hyderabad to Ooty can be done in a single day. 

You need to stop very early in the morning. 

 

How many days you are planning?

Ideal plan :

  • Start early morning at 5AM from Hyderabad
  • Reach Mysuru by evening 
  • Take accommodation in Mysuru 
  • Start early in the morning from Mysuru and visit Bandhipur Safari, early morning at 5AM start is must since it is over crowded in December.  You may miss safari
  • Mysuru to Ooty has two routes, take 36 hair pin route, it is shorter and adventurous to drive 
  • Regarding places to visit in Ooty tell us your number of days.

Hi Kishore 

I have done the Hyderabad - Ooty during November First Week

We took Hyderabad - Kurnool - Anantapur-Bangalore-Mysore- Nanjangud-Gundlupete-Bandipur-Gudalue-Ooty

Road Condition:

Hyderabad to Bangalore - Super Smooth Road except few speed breakers 

Make sure you are crossing Bangalore before peak hour traffic

Bangalore - Mysore Road would be little busy 

Mysore to NanjanGud  Bandipur except few Roads are smooth

We took Gudalur Route i.e., Long Route instead of MaisanaGudi i.e., 36 hair pin bend route from Mudumalai

Make sure You Enter and cross Bandipur/Mudumalai before 9:00 P:M as Forest gates would be closed .

-- Being winters evening become dark soon and also expect Fog hence drive carefully in the ghat section and often it rains too

Bandipur Mudumalai Forest stretch has some speed breajers and Pot Holes too 

Gudalur to Ooty Stretch - Few places in the ghat has potholes and one must be extremely careful in negotiating the turns....

 

-- We stopped by Hotel Nandi Upachar Before Bangalore Near By Nandi Hills 

--  Ooty  A2B [ Adyar Anand Bhavan Hotel ] is the Best Hotel for Break Fast and Meals .

- Stayed at Hotel Preeti Classic Coonor Road - Its a  3 star Hotel and I know a friend in Mysore who works with a Travel Agency and he has booked the room for us

This Hotel has got 224 hour hot water supply and nice parking space....2700 Rs it was with extra bed as we were 4 Adults and  2 kids and 1 infant 

-- Note: Ooty hotel check-in timings are from 12:00 P:M Hence make sure to reach by 12:00 P:M and they count the day till 12:00 P:M Next day  , whatever time you check in

do check whether they have Hot water Supply through out the day .. I am attaching few hotel pics too

-- If you are doing Mysuru to Ooty in day time then try to visit Himavad Gopala Swamy Betta Temple took right and travel 11 km after Gundlupete...timings are 8:30 - 4:00 P:M

Hi @travel.rtc, Thanks for sharing the essential details about your recent trip to Ooty. Have you done the safari at Bandipur?

I would recommend to cross the forest region and the 36 Hairpin section after Mudumalai before 6 PM at the max. Though the gates stay open, the road is pretty risky and the forest region would get dark during winters. You would not enjoy the forest drive after it gets dark too :)

      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.
