This is good information on your way back from Ooty.

Turn left, drive straight, you will cross two intersection and you will reach a T junction. Turn Right there, drive straightabout 2 Kms, you will cross 3 rumblers, the last one has 7 nos and immediately you will reach a round about (you will see the police station on the R side) take left(Ginger hotel is here) follow the road (along the border of Mysore Zoo and you reach another Round about. Take right and you will have the police acadamy on the left, follow the same road along the wall and you will reach the Najangod Road. This route will save 20 mts than taking the R at the ring road. The direction signs are also displayed on this road.
Don't confuse the poor chap. Taking a right is much better at that junction.

Ask for specific directions at junctions.

Dont ask for Ooty road, that will confuse you or give wrong results, just ask for next point - for instance after turning, ask for directions to Lalith Mahal Palace and then to main Palace, then take a left to enter Ooty road directly.

Hardcore Mysoreans can correct me if I miss something.
Oh my God, the ring road is complete and you're confusing him.

No need to go all the way around, take the simple route I've posted. I know Mysore very well and you can take my words - I've lived there for over 20 years.

Ok, let me clarify this. The ring road is complete and there is no need to enter the city under any circumstances. The simple solution is to cross Srirangapatna, get to the signal.

Just take a right at that junction. I'm sure you'd have slowed down because there is a signal there, but I am asking you to drive slow after you see "Fun Fort" on your right side (In case you miss that, there is a sharp left curve with a circle that seems a little weird). The signal is about 1 - 1.5 kms from there. The board is very clear and there is no way you'll miss it if you're a little attentive.

Keep driving on the ring road once you take that right, you'll come to a junction where you see Royal Inn, keep driving straight for quite a few kilometers. Keep going until you see a sign board that shows Nanjangud and Ooty on the right side. Take the right there and you're ready to rock 'n roll.

Some of them have got it wrong here, so shankaranand, I'll PM you my phone number - you can call me when you cross Srirangapatna or whenever you get confused.
Traxter was referring the ring road which you get when you take a left in the signal.

Deepak, I was just suggesting that there is no need to go through the Bannur road and reach Mysore.

The road after taking a left may save a few kilometers, but it is confusing and leads to the very starting point of Nanjangud road. If we take a right and touch the Nanjangud road, it would be much closer to Nanjangud at that junction. So effectively, we may not save too much.

Guys, the ring road is incomplete if you see this rough sketch below. The red one is the ring road.

But it is true there is a route to avoid city, as you can see. Though I am not sure if it will end up saving time or not at any given time. Certainly not with normal traffic.

Sorry for the error.

Traxter,
rocksterraghu and others including me are suggesting the ring road which goes through hunsur road in your sketch, not the other one.

you are right the other route is not complete. if you take that road you must enter mysore city to join the ooty road.

You can also try an alternative route. I traveled in this route till Chamarajanagar some 10 months back and the road was bad in few patches but passable. Now the situation could be different.

a) Bangalore- Maddur - Malavalli - Yelandur - Chamarajanagar - Gundulpet - Ooty

b) Bangalore - Kanakpura - Malavalli - Yelandur - Chamarajanagar - Gundulpet - Ooty

Bangalore-Kanakpura-Malavalli-Chamrajnagar is NH-209 (Kanakpura Road)


I did this because I was tired of going via Mysore, the road which we take all the time. The distance works out to be roughly the same. You can check for the exact distances in MapmyIndia - maps, directions, and local search across India - just search, print and go! or some other web site.

Another landmark.. you ll see a elevated aquaduct crossing the highway and very shortly...you ll see the traffic signal where you need to take a right.(this is the easier route as it is pretty well marked..)
