Thanks to Ooty being such a popular tourist hub, it is very well connected to places from all over the country. Although there are no airports or railway stations in Ooty, there are plenty of options for people looking to get here. For those wondering how to reach Ooty from Bangalore, the best option would be to travel via road. Ooty is a very popular holiday destination for people coming from Bangalore, especially during the long weekends, when people just want to get away from the hustle bustle of city life and relax in the lap of nature. Ooty is also popular among foreign tourists who are in Bangalore for a visit, and are looking for a short getaway. The distance between Bangalore and Ooty is around 280 kms, which can be covered in nearly 7 hours or so, if one is going by road.
By Air: Traveling from Bangalore to Ooty by air is not possible since there are no airports in Ooty. The nearest airport is in Coimbatore, which is almost a 100 kms away from the city center. The amount of time it takes to travel from the Coimbatore airport to the city center of Ooty makes the overall travel time almost the same as traveling by road from Bangalore to Ooty. So planning to travel to Ooty from Bangalore is not a viable option, neither in terms of budget nor in terms of travel time.
By Road: The distance between Bangalore and Ooty by road is nearly 280 kms, which can be covered within 7 hours or so. The best part about traveling from Bangalore to Ooty by the road is that not only is it the most convenient way, but also the most picturesque way to get to the destination. The beautiful scenery on the way keeps travelers company even as the well-maintained roads make traveling on them a complete delight. For travelers looking to reach Ooty from Bangalore, local buses, private taxis and private coaches are the best options.
By Train: The distance between Bangalore and Ooty by train is around 295 kms, which can easily be covered via a train in 15 to 16 hours. The journey is comfortable and picturesque enough, and the only issue is that there are no railway stations in Ooty, apart from the toy train station. The nearest railway station is in Mettupalayam, and it takes almost 3 hours to travel from this station to Ooty. Travelers can find a Mumbai to Ooty train easily, since there are super-fast, expresses, slow and passenger trains plying there on a daily basis.

Vinay's 4 days trip to OotyHotels are very good... liked them very much. Apart from that, we got new driver every day who don't know what is the plan and need to explain them every time. Planning is not proper. Thanks to sameera who was helpful when required. But the person who is managing the things at ooty, he is not at all good. He don't pick up phone when in need. He just ignore. He itself saying their drivers are idiots. Had problems with the driver. They will come very late which ruins all the plans of the day.
Varadharaj's 4 days trip to OotyAwesome Hotel... Amazing view.. Felt like we are staying in the clouds. Away from the hustle n bustle of commercial Ooty, i recommend this Hotel to everyone. If u lobe nature and want peace of mind, this is the place. The Cab driver - Shanmugam was very decent n courteous. He made sure we are comfortable n didnt rush us. I wish i could say the same for our Travel Agent - Victory World.. I used to get calls from them frequently before the booking.. but once the booking n payment was done, i was the one who was calling them up for details. No initiative from them. I was promised Toy train tickets which i did not get due to their negligence. Overall the trip was amazing but it would have been even better if our Travel Agent's services was better.
