Default Has anybody taken this route to Coonoor?

I was searching for Map information to go to Coonoor.

I know, I can drive Bangalore->Mysore->Ooty->Coonoor. Looks straight forward since I have been to Ooty.

But Maps of India website suggested this route and said it will be only 220 kms. Which will be far lesser as compared to Ooty route which may be 300+.

The route is

Bangalore -> Kanakapura -> Kollegala -> Chamarajanagara ->Gettawadi->Kodanad->Kotagiri ->Coonoor..

Has anybody tried this route?.. How are the road conditions?

The Maps of India site doesnt consider the distance travelled in vertical direction, i.e., going in and out of potholes. Hence the distance seems shorter.
I had taken this route from Shivanasamudra long time back. Me and my wife played Spot The Road most of the way.

You could attempt that route if you have an SUV. The roads beyond Kanakpura have been horrible for the last few years, with no one talking of getting better. Also I have my doubts whether you could come anywhere near Kodanad from Chamrajnagar though the stretch is contigous in terms of forest, also even if they are connected they may not be available as public road. I cant figure out how if Chamrajnagar is 170 kms from Bangalore to total distance could come to 229 kms

The safer route would via Mysore - Gundlupet - Bandipur - Mudumalai - Masinagudi - Kalhatty - Ooty - Coonoor.
