Dear friends,

I am very new to this forum. But amazed to see pmvelu advising people.. this is such a great service.
I have a dilemma I am planning to visit Nagarahole, Wayanad and ooty on Dec 10th 11th and 12th. Please let me know whether Nagarahole is better than Bandipur and Madhumalai or vise versa. I dont know the distance between Nagarahole to ooty i m worried this should not prove a longer route. Please advise me. My plan is below:
1st day: Leave to Nagarahole from Bangalore
2nd day: Visit Wayanad and if possible Mudhumalai
3rd day : Visit to Ooty
4th day: early morning departure to Bangalore

Please advise.

Thank you.

Hi Sadanand,

Tentative itenary for the 3 days you have.

Day 1:-

Bangalore- Shrirangapatna-Mysore-Bandipura NP [ Try out Safari here and if you start by 4 am in Bangalore, you can do the morning Safari here . Timings 6 - 9 am and 3 - 6 pm] .Safari will be around 1 hour and then continue driving till Mudumalai NP .From here you can take Left and reach ooty via Scenic & Steep Kalhatti Ghat road .

Distance :-

Bangalore- Mysore [129 kms]
Mysore-Bandipur [70 kms]
Bandipur-Mudumalai [10 kms]
Mudumalai- Ooty [via Kalhatty road is 32 kms and if your car is old or you are new to driving, take picturesque Gudalur route to ooty and this is 64 kms from Mudumalai to ooty]

Bandipura NP & Mudumalai WLS both are just on the Mysore-Ooty Highway,

Day 2 & 3:-

You may explore ooty & Coonoor. All standard tourist places of ooty & coonoor need 2 days at the least to explore.

Day 4:- Early morning , you may start back to Bangalore.

Clubbing Nagarahole & Wayanad to this trip will be very much crunched. If you are particular about nagarahole NP & Wayanad , you need to skip ooty at the least. If you need more info, Please post.

Have a Nice Trip

I did it

I did bandipur in 2007 and did nagerhole and wyanad this past spetember 2009. Hard to compare them both because I spent more time this time around: 10 days versus 4 days last time. But overall experience for the value of money spent, nagerhole and wyanad was better.

So what it helps, here is my take.
