And the fact that you'd be travelling on a Friday would help as well. The high traffic day for the Ooty to Bangalore sector is Sunday.

Thanks ampere and kala. I will then try this route this Friday morning. I will be returning from Mysore on Sunday. So, maybe Sathyamangalam route would be a safe bet for the return journey.

Default Re: Coimbatore to Mysore - Via Chamraj nagar or Bandipur?

One last question before I leave tomorrow morning through Coimbatore - Gudalur - Bandipur - Mysore route. Is there any timing restrictions for Bandipur route? Google maps gives me a warning "This route has restricted usage".

Road through Bandipur is closed at night. Please ensure that you cross Theppekadu (forest entrance on the Mudumalai side) before sunset.

Thanks a lot for the heads up. For the onward journey tomorrow, I am leaving Coimbatore at 4:30 in the morning. So I will be crossing Bandipur after 7AM. For return, as I will be leaving Mysore at around 4 in the evening, I think I will not be able to make it to Bandipur entrance before sunset. So, I will take the Ch.Nagar - Dimbam - Sathyamangalam route.

Bandipur is closed from 9PM to 6AM. So if you leave at 4, you will be comfortably able to take the same route on the return (if you prefer to)
