Thanks Jean, I will be taking a regular bus not the minibuses/vans.

Smile Thanks to all

Thanks everybody.

The roads were excellent except for the Bandipura-Gundulpet stretch as mentioned accurately by pmvelu.

I did the journey in 5 and a 1/2 hours (9:30 am to 3:00 pm). I decided to continue to Bangalore by bus and reached there by 6:30 pm despite traffic and bad weather.

I travelled by the TNSTC Ultra-deluxe bus. It was comfortable.

@Vishwa,

Mysore-Nanjangud --> Roads are Good
Nanjangud - Gundlupet --> Very good
Gundlupet-Mudumalai --> Super Fine
Mudumalai - Gudalur --> Ok to good
Gudalur - Ooty --> Very good.

From Mudumalai, Ghat road starts.

Around 4 hours Travel time in Bus.

From Ginger Hotel, Mysore Suburb bus stand (From where Out Station Buses depart/Arrive) will be close to 25 Rs in Pre-paid Auto (Pre-paid Auto stand is there in this bus stand) and travel time at the max 20 Minutes.

Hope this helps
Velu

@Vishwa,

You may get a Volvo Bus from Airport to MCTC bus station (Also Called as Satellite Bus Stand) followed by another Volvo or Rajahamsa to Mysore.

For First part, you have the timings/fare listed here:

For Second part, you can view the timings/Fare listed here:

No need to pre-book Mysore bound bus from Bangalore. Just you can board any of the "Lined-up" buses without any issues.

Regards
Velu

@Guha,

Sorry I don't have much useful info to share on your questions as I never used Rental Taxi .. So Not sure on the rates. (One Suggestion: Send a PM to Nkumar. He might be having idea on the Bangalore part).

Nilgiris Tea, you can buy Just in "Tamilnadu Government's Stall" in "Doddabetta" (It's just there at the View point itself). Here , display of "tea Varieties" + we can taste "Lemon Tea" (10 Rs / cup).

Regards
Velu
