If you’re planning for a three day trip, then this is it. Me and my friend planned for a road trip from Bangalore to Kotagiri in car (August trip). Morning we started at 7 AM from Bangalore University. Our first stop was at Mylari hotel (Dosa stop), it’s a small hotel but pulls in huge crowd for dosa. There are many hotels with the same name so do not get confused (Hotel Original Vinayaka Mylari), which took us almost 2hrs to reach there from Bangalore (non stop). Then second stop was at Mysore palace, which opens at 10 AM. One can’t miss this place if you’re going through this way. It’s worth a visit, if you’ve not been even once definitely. I think entry is some 100 or 150 for two, not really sure. From there next stop was SGS birds - Shuka Vana which is just 2kms away from palace. This place is a treat to eyes if you’re a bird person. There are so many varieties of birds and you get to feed them and click a picture with them ( cost is around 300 rs for each person). Right infront of birds place, there is this amazing bonsai garden which has entry fee of 25 rs. By the time we visited all of this it was 2 PM. It was time for lunch, google map navigated us to Mysore Empire by default ????. From empire we started our journey towards Bandipur, if you’re lucky you get to see deer’s, elephants, monkeys are everywhere, if you’re super lucky then you get to see tiger too. From Bandipur to masinagudi route, from there our stop was at CCD before Ooty for a coffee and some energy and then directly to our room which was after Ooty. By the time we reached our room we were exhausted and it was 6 PM. I would totally recommend anybody the stay we stayed in(I-India hotel Ooty), staffs are so helping and food is yum. We took two wheeler from them and came to city to buy some stuff and yeah, FYI big no for plastic in Ooty. Do carry thick clothes because in the night it would be freezing. If possible, book a room with room heater, luckily our room had one. Shut down for that night and chill ????????
