I'm sorry I have no idea. We only saw the first 100 feet of it from the fork and then spent the next hour wishing we had taken it. But for all you know it may be as bad. And it's marginally longer.

Default Re: Mangalore to Ooty?

Hello everyone. This is a surprisingly quiet thread. Not many people doing the Mangalore Ooty route? I hope not as I badly need some information on the best route and road conditions for Ooty to Mangalore.

I am doing a trip from Bangalore to Ooty to Mangalore. Have never done the Ooty to Mangalore route so need the help.

Is it better to do the known route of Ooty-Mysore-Coorg-Mangalore? Or is the google map route of going through Gonikopal-Coorg-Mangalore better?

Many use the Madikerei-Sampaje-Sulia-Jalasoor-Puttur. (See Bangalore Bekal Thread)

or this one : https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/route...-mysore-3.html

I have done the Mangalore - Masinagudi trip a couple of times in last two years. Would recommend Ooty - Bandipur - Mysore - Madikeri -Sullia - Puttur - BC Road - Mangalore Route. Two Lane roads most of the time but overall good condition of roads, especially once you cross Bandipur. Not too many bottle necks. You can avoid driving through Mysore city by taking the ring road. Café Coffee day pit stops near Kushalngar and Sullia. Usual eateries in Madikeri.

I remember some years back the road via Nugu was being relaid. Would be great to hear the status on Begur-Nugu-Handpost-HD Kote-Hunsur.

I think its done. I took some part of this route while coming back from wayanad to mysore earlier this year. I remember the nugu part where you drive around a giant reservoir to have pretty good single lane road.
