coorg-ooty-kodaikanal in march


10:15 pm trian reaching manglore next day


12:30 manglore. Lunch. Bus/cab to coorg. 120 kms.


Site seeing in coorg. Night halt at coorg/mysore.


Enroute to ooty.

10th , 11th, 12th



To madurai and flight to mumbai

here are the questions i have:

1) i have given just over a day in coorg and slightly longer in ooty. is that enough?

2)what is the best possible transport from coorg to ooty and ooty to kodaikanal? And how long does it take?

3) I have kept 8th night halt at coorg or mysore. dont really intend to visit mysore. i read its easier to get to mysore from coorg and to ooty from mysore. If there are reasonably priced direct taxi options from coorg to ooty then mysore can be omitted.

4) what is the best journey in the toy train?

5) is it possible to hire a vehicle with driver ofcourse manglore and leave it at kodaikanal?

The answers :

1) The time given to Coorg is enough for the sight seeing.

2) Taxis are readily available in between these places. Journey time : Coorg - Ooty is 6 hrs and Ooty - Kodaikanal is 7 hrs approx.

3) No need to stay at Mysore, if you dont want that. The Taxi will go directly from Coorg to Ooty in 6 hrs.

4) The toy trains are ordinary passenger trains, possibly slowest mode of transport of that region. Although, you'll get good views from that.

5) You can hire the vehicle for the entire trip. www.southtourism.in is the renowned transport operator of South India. They are reliable.
