hi Guys,

I am new to this site.So please forgive me if I ask any dumb/redundant questions.I went through a few answers here but could not decide concretely my itinerary.

My Uncle and brother with their spouses and a kid are reaching Mysore on 23 from Kacheguda evening 4pm and I am requested to plan it all out since i've been to mysore and ooty once 4 years back.

I have booked them rooms in Hotel Shashwath Residency .After check-in they could leave for Mysore Vilas @ 4:30pm .At 5pm,they could go for Mysore Zoo since I checcked online zoo closes @5:30pm.My nephew would love the Zoo.At 5:30,they could head to Brindavan Gardens -enjoy the music foundation till 8:30(since it is October).

Morning check-out early 7:00am (not sure if Breakfast would be available in vicinity?),Head to Ooty enjoying bandipur(need recomendation for Cab Hiring?/Fare for Indica?),reach by 11:00am(I am guessing though check-in is at 12:00pm).

Now,I believe its best to see Pykara Lake(I did not like waterfall ->also my aunt has some knee problem)/Wenlock Downs(shooting point-Is it here only?I forgot) ,come back to town around 4:30 to see RoseGarden/Dodddabetta Peak/Botanical Garden(Is it worth?I hadn't gone).Here Please suggest what all I could accomodate till 9:00PM in night so as to make the most of the time?

Next day,I could not get train booking to conoor online but got the ticket for other way booked.Leave early for conoor(dolphin's nose/lamb's rock /suggest what else?)except sim's park(lot of parks already seen).get on train at 4:30 and come back to ooty at 5:45PM.Suggest what else to do till 9PM?(Market shopping?).Check-out morning early and come to Mysore railway sation .I am thinking to book their ticket to SBC(bangalore) to reach SBC Majestic where they have train at 6pm back to kacheguda.

Should I hire a cab (cab timings?) or big sized auto works there?

I'd be really indebted to you folks if you could help me with itinerary.Please reply soon.Eagerly awaiting.Thanks a lot for reading.

I think there will be hardly any time to visit Mysore Vilas and the zoo in so little time. Just do the Brindavan Gardens that day.

Next morning visit the other two sites and go then direct to Coonoor.
We stayed there in Hotel Vivek, it is close to a tea plantation.
When we were there they organized a driver for us and he showed us all the viewpoints in the region.
You can do something like this before you take the train to Ooty.

Hello vonkla,

Thanks a ton for replying.
Problem is I have already booked rooms online for ooty for 24th/25th oct.
After some extensive reading..I have decided on this plan.Please review ..and answer few questions I listed alongside .

day1-->Oct23-4pm ->Reach Mysore Railway Stn->checkin hotel(2 km) and finish seeing amba vilas and zoo by 5:30 (reason i am hell bent on this is because zoo opens at 8:30/palace at 10:00 in morning)and they would probably hire a cab ride to ooty at 6 am in morning(i assume 6 hours is reasonable estimate they'd reach ooty via hair pin -kalaghati route--is it easy to find cab service operators near hotel Shashwath residency,mandi mohalla or should i book online in advance ?where should i go to ).

day2-->check-in hotel at ooty at 11(if lucky,hotel check-in @12) /freshup and lunch/leave at 1 PM book cab (5hr -what should be approx fare?) to visit these places in order :

9th mile shooting point,cinema shooting point(are they same ?google maps showns 4 km distance?)--1hr
doddabetta peak and dodabetta tea museum and chocolate factory--1hr
botanical garden(1km from hotel)--1hr
rose garden(2km from hotel)--1hr
st.stephen's church(1km from hotel and if time permits)-20 min
other transit time and back to hotel at 6pm.

Rest for the day.
i have asked them to give these places a miss:

pykara lake/pykara falls(no water/knee patient)/ooty lake(dirty and crowded) -since they stay in hyderabad and enjoy boating on every alternate weekends.
thread garden/wax museum -tripadvisor reviews

day3 : Urgently Need your help here as I've no idea of Coonoor.already booked toy train tickets for them at 4:30 from conoor to ooty

book cab (5 hr and leave ooty at 7-8am ->visit these places in order:
lamb's rock,droog fort(your review?),lady cannning's seat(your review?),queen's view(your review?),dolphin's nose.Give sim's park a miss as they are already seeing botanical garden and there are loads of park in hyderabad too.

Yes therea are tea gardens in the above route?would you recommend going there since they are already going to dodabetta one?
Please suggest if i missed anything in coonoor.

Come back to cooor railway station by 3:30 have lunch and get on 4:30 train and reach ooty and rest for day.

day4-->26morning.Is it easy to find cabs for bangalore at ooty?if yes,expected fare for indigo?if not,is it recommended to book cab to mysore and then again a cab to bangalore?
there are 55 people including a 4 year old.

Eagerly awaiting your answer.I've to send my family itinerary as soon as possible.Thanks again!!
