we are planning to drive from Mysore to Ooty on 10th Aug 2013. How will be the road conditions - both for gudalur road as well as 36 hair-pin-bent road? Also, how is the rain in Ooty. Will it be raining heavily in Ooty? I am just worried we should not end up staying inside the room for 3 days? Is the coonnor train operatoinal during Monsoon? Please advise the other options as well. (We are driving all the way from Hyderabad and will prefer to visit Mysore as well). Thanks.
