Pune to Ooty and Coorg
This is my firts thread in Team-BHP and would like to have opinion on my forthcoming trip.
I plan to do a 7 day excursion to Ooty and Coorg from Pune. My car is Hyundai Getz GLS model done 22k Kms. I would like to seek our advice on the following:
1)Best possible route considering I have 2 kids aged 6 and 2.
2) Approx kms for the total trip.
3) What is fesible first: Pune to Coorg to ooty or do ooty first and go to Coorg. I have read that Coorg to OOty is 75 kms and you go to Coorg and then go to OOty. Please help.
4)Will this trip be possible in 7 days?
Any other instructions which would help.

For Going to Coorg from Pune you have two possible routes
1. Pune - Bangalore - Madikeri
2. Pune - Mangalore - Madikeri
Both the routes might take you some 18-20 hours of drive including breaks.
the route is common till Belgaon (4 hours drive if you leave at 4 AM), you can have breakfast at Hotel Sankam (100RS + VAT for a great buffet breakfast, plus great sofas int he resturant, very clean toilets etc for your kids).
if you decide to go via Bangalore it is 4 hours from Bangalore to Chitradurga and another 4 hours to Bangalore. Bangalore to Madikeri is another 4+ hours drive depending on how well you know the route and time of the day you would be driving.
Belgaon to Mangalore would be another 8 hours drive, Mangalore to Madikeri is 3+ hours drive.
Regarding the time schedule you would need 1 day + 1 day drive to reach and return.
you might effectively get 5 days (2.5 days at Madikeri + arround, 2 days at Coorg).
Ensure that you have (preventive) maintained your car well, especially check the clutch plates especially considering it has done 22K KMs. Secondly you can have a back up driver (it could be your wife) as the drive is really very long.
Hope this helps

The shorter route would be Pune - Mangalore - madikeri. Its almost 220kms shorter as compared to the Pune - bangalore - madikeri. Also, Madikeri to Ooty is about 240kms,not 75kms.
If you need any help regarding Coorg, do let me know. I stay in Coorg.

You need not come till Bangalore, but take diversion from Chitradurga/Hiryur to Hassan to Madikeri.
For going to Ooty first, proceed till Tumkur, then take right to Kunigal and Maddur, proceed to Mysore and Ooty.
From Madikeri to Ooty you can go via Mysore or take this scenic route -
Madikeri - Siddapur - Gonnikoppal - Kutta - Mananthavady - Sulthan Bathery - Gudalur - Ooty

i think you can easily do Coorg and Ooty in 7 days. I am taking off for 5 days to go to Mysore and Ooty.
my plan is to travel by car on the below route:
Pune - Mysore (2 days halt)
Mysore - Mudumalai (2 days halt)
and then travel back. Planning to start on 30th Apr, 9 PM from pune and the following is the route that I am planning to take for mysore:
Pune-Belgaum-Hubli-Harihar-Shimoga-Tarikere-Arsikere-Channarayapatna-K R Pet-Srirangapatna-Mysore
Approximate kms is coming to 940. As per advice on various posts, pls avoid bangalore if you are not planning anything in the city.
One of the fellow TBHPian, Pawan_pullarwar also travelled on that route recently and you can get info on this route from the below post:

Also, there is another post pjbiju on similar route, you can get idea from this too.
