Few Points to keep in mind before planning A road trip
Pack according to the weather as Ooty is a few degrees cooler in summer. Pack some winter wear, if you are planning to go in December then it can be freezing for people who are not familiar with windy weather.
The Karnataka government has banned night traffic through roads passing via Bandipur national park as it can disturb wildlife. Therefore, while planning a trip, keep this in mind.
When you reach the forest reserve area be prepared for hairpin bends, therefore drive with care, and avoid speeding. Moreover, the stretch from Mysore to Srirangapatna is not in good condition, therefore, drive carefully and slowly.
Along the way you will face several speed bumps, divisions, and narrow roads. The route has monkeys, so be aware of them if you plan to stop for a little while. Make sure to keep an eye on signboards. Try to stick with GPS routes to avoid any kind of confusion.
