Chennai To Ooty Guide

By AirBy RoadBy TrainBy Sea

Ooty is a popular destination for many travelers, from all over the country as well as the world. Its lush greenery and gorgeous landscapes offer travelers to relax and enjoy being ensconced nt he lap of nature, at the same time. For those traveling to this beautiful place from Chennai, there are a few options available. Travelers can pick and choose from these options as per their comfort, requirement and budget. The distance between Chennai and Ooty is around 562 kms, and it can be covered via train or roadways. Flight is not a viable option for traveling from Chennai to Ooty because there is no airport in Ooty, and the nearest airport to Ooty is in Coimbatore. Traveling from Coimbatore to Ooty via road will roughly bring the time spent traveling same as traveling by train or the road from Chennai to Ooty.

 

By Air: There are no airports in Ooty, and the closest airport to this hill station is in Coimbatore, which is nearly 100 kms away from the city center. Covering the final distance from Chennai to Ooty is done by road, by either traveling in a local bus or hiring a private taxi for oneself. This is not a much preferred method for those living in nearby cities, such as Chennai, since trains and buses are more preferred for traveling to Ooty.

 

By Road: The distance from Chennai to Ooty by road is nearly 562 kms, which can easily be covered within 10 to 11 hours. There are several local buses available that travel from Chennai to Ooty. While some of these buses are direct buses, there are also a few buses that have to be changed from certain destinations enroute Ooty from Chennai.

 

By Train: The Chennai to Ooty distance by train is around 600 kms, which are covered within 15 to 16 hours. The only problem with opting for this route is that there is no railway station in Ooty. The closest railway station is in Mettupalayam, which is a good 50 kms away from the city center of Ooty. Once people deboard at Mettupalayam, the remaining distance to Ooty has to be covered via the road, which again takes a lot of time, or by the toy train, which although pleasant is still a long journey

    • Trip to Karnataka

      There are two things very important which is making any trips grateful the one is hotels & location and second one is cabs & drivers. In our case we got very nice cab and driver Mr. Naveen moorti and he served very good services to us and we satisfied with him during our trip also we are thankful to MS Bhargavi from VFM holidays she provided flexibility to us for shuffling our trip dates to one day and she was very polite and manageable. The only thing which we have disappointed the first one thing of hotel and location choosing skill we are not satisfied with hotels at all the places (Ooty,Mysore,Bangalore) except coorg. The banglore hotel was really worst in above all. so they should improve this thing rest of the thing are very good we really enjoyed during our vacation. Thanks VFM.

      It was a very well planned trip with a great cab and friendly driver. The hotels were superb and stay was comfortable. We would definitely plan our next trip with you, if it's possible. The stay at Mountain Trail resort at Ooty was memorable. The views from the balcony are out of this world, like straight from a movie and heavenly. The food arrangement need to be strengthened.

      A very well organised trip overall by VFM Holidays. Ooty was amazing, Mysore and Coorg were good as well. Only advice is plan either Ooty or Coorg at one time as weather/landscape almost same. I would prefer Ooty over Coorg. Also, dont plan Coorg in Monsoon, e.g July. It rains 24*7. Cheersssss!

      Overall Trip was really good and memorable..... especially the pykara Boat House....ooty is a complete and perfect holiday destination in all seasons. Food quality and taste in Preethi Classic towers was just below average, thus make sure you choose good hotel with good food.

    • Trip to Ooty

      No proper communication.No proper arrangement of travel. So many agent involved but no proper planning made for trip. Driver is good but since he is also new for ooty so he couldn't help us.its duty of agent actually to provide good quality of service by providing proper planning.

    • Trip to Ooty

      It was a nice and memorable experience of sightseeing in ooty. Hotel Mountain Trail is bit disappointing in services.Poor staff management and limited and costly food items. Hotel Staff not bothered about inconvenience caused, TV was not working properly. Same menu items are served in breakfast daily and no variation. Driver Rajesh really made sightseeing experience to next level. his humble, sincere and polite nature is really worth a praise. Ms Ramya helped in trip arrangement well. Overall good and memorable experience.

    • Trip to Ooty

      I recently opted for the package offered by Foxpro Travels through Travel Triangle for a road trip to Mysore-Ooty-Coonoor from Bangalore. The entire experience has been an enriching one for me and my family. We were a group of 4 women and our driver ensured we were comfortable throughout the trip. The entire process, right from booking to paying off installments for the trip, was hassle free and effectively organized online. The agent assigned to the trip also ensured to stay in touch and follow up until all the formalities were finalized before the start of our journey. She also, at regular intervals, checked on if everything was going as planned. Overall, it was a memorable trip for us. Special thanks to Srishti from Foxpro Travels and our driver, Mr. Manjunath. We look forward to more happy trips such as this one through Travel Triangle! Thank you!!
