Hello friends, I want travel to Ooty with my wife in the month of April (mid April). Can someone please advise an itinerary that I can follow. I don't want the tour to be too hectic. I will be starting from Kolkata and would like to take the Ooty toy train once. Willing to spend 5 nights in the trip but not fully in Ooty. Looking for your suggestions. Thanks

How are you planning to travel? Train or flight?
If you travel by train you can go via Chennai. If flight then nearest airport is Coimbatore.

From Chennai you can take the "12671/Nilgiri (Blue Mountain) SF Express" which reaches Mettupalayam at 6:15 am. At 7 am from same station you can get 56136 Toy train to ooty.

In Ooty keep a full day for Coonoor tour. You can travel Ooty-Coonoor-Ooty by toy train too.

Another day do the local sightseeing in Ooty.

There are some beautiful locations like Pykara Waterfalls, Pykara Lake, etc which will take another day.

Can I visit Kodaikanal or Corg within that timeframe? I can take flight or train whichever is better for availing the toy train.

Any advise would be really helpful. I was thinking of visiting ooty and Kodaikanal for 3 nights each and returning back to Kolkata from there. Would also request for suggestions regarding hotel in these two places.

If you do plan to visit Ooty and Kodaikanal then you would need to land in Coimbatore and fly out from Madurai.

What is your budget for the hotel?

I would prefer to have the hotel charges to be less than 2k per day. Please advise if cabs are available from ooty to Kodaikanal and the charges for the same also in case there are any other modes of transport. Thanks

For Ooty I would suggest Nahar Residency.

There would be cabs available from Ooty to Kodaikanal however you will need to pay for the return fare also. Cab would take around 8 hours. I don't know the cab charges.

You could also take a bus from Mettupalayam / Coimbatore to Kodaikanal however I am not sure about their timings. For an experience in the reverse route read http://www.platform7.in/2018/07/14-d...ride-from.html A bus would take around 12 hours.

You could also take a train from Coimbatore to Dindigul and from there a bus to Kodaikanal however the express trains reach Dindigul at 23:00, whereas there is a fast passenger which halts at Dindigul (13:05) as well as Kodaikanal Road (13:30). From Dindigul road take a cab to Kodaikanal.

We hired a 4 seater car from Ooty to Coimbatore Airport dropping (85 kms return fare) for 2200 rs previous year.

Ooty to kodaikanal is 250kms. Around 5500-6000 rs will be taken.

Direct buses are available. Takes around 8 hours.
You can book online.
