Hi Vijay16,

Welcome to Trip Advisor.

While you haven't indicated the preferred mode of travel, presuming it is by public transport, I suggest you book yourself in the KSRTC direct bus from/to Bangalore. You would be boarding the bus, the previous night. You may do an online booking for the same in the KSRTC website.

Once you arrive in Ooty the next day morning, you may check the KSTDC or TTDC guest houses for accommodation or check the hotels section of this website to choose a hotel based on your budget and expectations.

For the sight seeing part of it, there are many travel operators in the main commercial street area who provide a Seat In Coach basis tour of all the locations. You may opt for the packages of your interest, and book one of those for two days and have one day leisure for you to explore and shop.

This is a rough idea, which I personally feel would be economical too as the SIC basis tours would be only around Rs.150 to Rs.300 per person, depending on the vehicle and the operator. Also, this way, you will end up covering all or most of the places.

Please feel free to revert for any clarifications.



PS : You have also not mentioned the number of people travelling.
