A Drive Through Mudumalai/Bandipur National Park Via Ooty

I had 2 days of free time and did not want to waste it sitting idle or watch “Avathar”. So me and Arun decided to just drive down to Coimbatore to a relatives place. There are multiple ways to reach Coimbatore from Bangalore. The well known route is the Hosur road. We decided to take alternate route via Kanakpura Road.

Bangalore – Kanakpura – Malavalli – Kollegal – Sathyamangalam – Coimbatore

Apart from a 30km bad stretch the road was quite good and were able to reach the destination in 7 hours. On our return journey we wanted to take the Ooty – Mysore Route which is much longer but very scenic

Coimbatore – Ooty – Mysore – Bangalore

Here are few photos taken during the road trip.

Load! Too much?

Tea Plantations

Green Everywhere!

And More...

Where are the tigers? I see only monkey

OK! Now where are the lazy tigers? Eat Eat Eat!!

  1. Never knew that one can reach Mysore via Kanakpura Road. Definitely going to try it out the next time I visit Bandipur. I’m a regular at Bandipur and make it a point to stay at my favorite Bandipur lodge It adds so much more to the experience with it’s sheer location. The jungle just comes to life as night folds.
