Ooty Getting There

How To Reach Ooty ?  

By Air - The nearest airport is at Coimbatore. There are flight services to Coimbatore from Bangalore, Chennai and Mumbai. You could also take a train up to Mettupalayam and from there, take the quaint hill train upto Ooty, 35 kms away. You can also hire a private car or taxi or take a bus up to Ooty. The road winds up with loops and bends and in the rains gets washed away in parts.

By Rail - The real way to arrive at Ooty is by the Blue Mountain Railway (weather permitting). The train begins at Mettupalayam (35 km from Coimbatore), and makes a short stop at Conoor for refreshments. Mettupalayam has direct connections with Chennai and Coimbatore.

By Road - There are buses to Ooty from all over the state, including Chennai (535 km). Or you can come the Mysore way from the state of Karnataka – there are many many more hairpin bends on this route so be prepared for a roller coaster trip. Rent a car if you’d rather not risk the buses, and keep it for the rest of your stay..... really, the most convenient thing to do. Unlike Kodai, which is quite compact, Ooty spreads out over several hills. A car at your disposal would save you the hassle of finding a new ride every time.
