    Hello friends,

    I am planning to drive first to ooty and then to kodaikanal.

    Can someone give road status from:-
    Pune to Ooty
    Ooty to Kodaikanal
    Kodaikanal to Pune.

    Please give highways only if possible so it's easy to catch speed.

    Rohit J

    Pune -kolhapur -belgaum -hubli -mysore -bandipur -ooty.

    hubli -mysore there are lot of routes and suggestions becomes difficult but one thing you will have good roads in karnataka less traffic and safe you will love it.

    Hubli-Shimogga-Arsikere-c.pattan -mysore
    Hubli-hiriyur-huliyur-c.pattan -mysore.(which covers more of nh4 so preferred )

    You can cover pune mysore in one strech if starts early.
    Mysore-gundulpet-bandipur -ooty.(Night drive restricted )

    Thanks a lot uturn.

    So you suggest I should take
    Hubli-hiriyur-huliyur-c.pattan -mysore which will be fast and covers most of NH.
    Is it so?

    How is the road from Mysore to ooty?

    Regards.
    Rohit

    As per other forums and groups ie is ideally suggested due to best use of nh4 upto hiriyur.
    I have gone via shivmogga but not in recent years.

    Mysore -ooty road must be good as i have travelled by ksrtc bus but not recently you can have authentic south idli / vada coffee enrouted in ka border limits.

    careful about animals once you enter badipur forest area.

    As per google
    Ooty-Coimbatore-pollachi-palani -Kodai
    In tn roads are good.
    In return you can touch kanyaumari-Bangalore highway at nearest city from Kodai (dindigul /karur) so that you can reach fast towards Bangalore.
    You can use nice road to avoid Bangalore city entry just check and confirm after hosur ( I think not to take electronic city flyover but not sure )
    Our tn family members can guide more precisely.

    Visiting Mysore, ooty and kodaikanal will be a good plan in the month of may or in Oct and Nov.

    Can you plz advice?

    Kodaikanal:

    1. Boating in lake.
    2. Cycle ride around lake.
    3. Coakers walk
    4. Take the ten mile round road from Lake to cover Guna caves, Pillar Rock and Pine forest.
    5. Mannavanur eco village.
    6. Brijam Lake (permit required)

    I've done above all except Berijam Lake in a single day. Month of May expect more tourist in both Ooty and Kodaikanal owing to summer holidays in schools. So all restaurants, hotels will be of full rush. Difficult even to sit and eat, park your car. Oct/Nov manageable.

    Return route: Kodaikanal-Dindigul-Karur-Salem-Bangalore-Pune. No problem all 4 laned from Dindigul.

    My suggestion to you is why Ooty? Better join Munnar & Thekkady in your list instead of Ooty.
    1. It is near Kodaikanal.
    2. Anyday Munnar is better than Ooty.
    3. Go to Munnar from kodaikanal following - Kodaikanal-Dindigul-Theni-Munnar.
    4. Drive in the scenic return circuit route from Munnar. Take Munnar-Chinnar-Marayoor-Palani-Dindigul-Salem-Bangalore-Pune. You will definitely enjoy more than Ooty. By this you cover Dinigul-Munnar-Palani-Dindigul circuit having beautiful hill route.

    Hi, Try avoiding Coimbatore - Pollachi stretch the road was already full of traffic and notorious drivers now since four laning work is in progress it has only caused more trouble. So either take Coimbatore - Palladam - dharapuram - palani - Kodaikanal or coimbatore - Palladam - Madathukalam - Palani. Please feel free to message me if you need anything.
