I know this is a 4 year old thread but Was just going through this thread, and what a surprise to see my Uncles tea Estate, Manasarovar Estate. As somebody mentioned that this is a carrot field/farm is dead wrong. I have grown up running up & down those slopes. Nice click mate

The photo referred to by you is not the one referred by discoverwild as carrot farms. That one indeed was the carrot farm - somehow the photos are not getting loaded currently. However you can refer the same photos here

All the same, it must have been a wonderful life you had at the hills! Envy you!

Post Hyderabad to Ooty via Bengaluru - Need recommendations/pointers

Hi All,

We are planning a family trip (3-4 days) from Hyderabad to Ooty in the middle of Oct. 2015 during the Dushehra Holidays. I have been searching for recent threads on this topic but couldn't find one. It would be really nice if you can provide your recent experiences and any do's/dont's etc.

I have a Honda City (I-VTEC/2010/Petrol) and would appreciate if there are any specific posts relevant to that. In case there are any threads that I should be looking at, please quote them too.


Thanks,
Ashish.

Your route will be via Bangalore and depending on the time you reach Bangalore, you can think of bypassing the city via one or more options.
To Ooty your route options from Bangalore are:
Bangalore-Kanakapura-Malavalli-Kollegal-Chamarajanagar-Gundlupet
OR
Bangalore-Mysore-Nanjangud-Gundlupet (stretch has some road widening work in progress and Bangalore-Mysore can be really slow in peak hours/holidays)

From Gundlupet you can do:
Gundlupet-Bandipur-Masinagudi-Ooty (the 36 hair pin bend route)
OR
Gundlupet-Bandipur-Gudalur-Ooty (longer than route above and road is rough at many places)
*For your return, cops may not allow you to drive downhill on the 36 hair pin bend route so you may be forced to take Gudalur route.

More details for the Bangalore-Ooty route options are discussed in this thread - here

Any recommendations on places to get Petrol from on the way from Hyderabad to Mysore to Ooty? I drove on the Hyderabad - Bengaluru highway a few years back and refilled close to Anantpur. It was more Kerosene than Petrol. Just want to avoid that situation this time.

Tank up in your regular bunk in Hyd. You should have enough range to reach close to Chickbalapur. Just before Chickbalapur you will find a Kamat on your right. The bunk there is a CoCo bunk.
On Mysore road tank up again at McDonald's bunk between Ramnagar and Madur. Again a COCO. My Punto took me to Ooty and back till this bunk. I am sure you will find a decent bunk in Ooty to just fill emergency fuel and drive back to McDonald's to tank up.
