Does anyone know if there is to book a luxury bus from Mysore to Ooty in advance, perhaps even from the U.S?

The buses from Mysore to Ooty run regularly - I am told that there's no need to book.

You can get a car and driver for about Rs.1500/-

Thanks. I loved your photos. I've visited India in 1972. Some of these photos look like the Cochin area. I'm guessing.

I am sure there are lots...as these 2 places are well connected and are important tourist locations.

The road is thru National parks and is a good ride. You can see a lot of elephants, deers and if u r lucky, a tiger also.

Thanks. I checked out their site. Do you know if this is the only bus company connecting major cities. Their bus leave either at 0700 or 1500. I read somewhere about 4 luxury buses. Thanks, again.

this is the Karnataka government bus operator. there are a number of private bus operators who run this route. also tamil nadu govt would run buses on the route.

you can take a chance by going to the bus station early.

however if you value comfort and peace of mind make sense to book

booking early isn't necessary, as far as i can tell.

there is a private bus depot close to the gov't bus stand, and across from the gov't bus stand are several travel agencies with multiple ooty options.

i'm driving mysore-ooty this thursday (nov. 24th) if anyone is interested in catching a ride. returning sunday night.

We will be in Mysore from the 1st March, 2012 and are wanting to do a day trip to Ooty on Friday 2nd March. Are there regular buses going to Ooty and back on the same day? How much is it to hire a taxi from Mysore?

Ooty, in my opinion, is a bit far for a day trip especially by bus (about 5 hours each way). There are buses leaving nearly every hour from Mysore, and every couple hours from Ooty back to Mysore. But why not stay one night in Ooty and enjoy the cool mountain morning there? It's a lovely place, don't rush out so soon
