Accomadation in Mysore

ITDC Lalitha Mahal Palace charges strats from 4000/- plus taxes for double occupency in their turret.

Budget option is Dashaprakash Paradise Hotel, Yadavgiri near vikram hospital. INR 2000/- for double.( Do not confuse with Mysore Dashaprakash at city centre)

hi munjal_doc,

Ooty to Mysore is around 130 kms. better to hire a cab for this journey to enjoy the scenic beauty and Mudumalai/Bandipur forest . or else you can board a Cummins or Volvo from ooty .

i guess Lalith Mahal Palace or Royal Orchid Metropole are the bests in mysore .

in Bangalore , The Taj West End ,The Oberoi Bangalore are the ones amongst the bests.

Cab services wont be a problem at all , as these places are popular tourist spots . Contacting the travel desk in the hotel would be the best thing to do .

Hi munjal,

4 days at ooty you can cover lake with boating, Botanical garden, Rose Garden, thottabetta , Pykara lake and pykara waterfalls, and Coonor I think you can cover these places in at most in 2 days no need to hire cab for 4 days. If can also visit Coonor by toy train and return.

From Ooty to Mysore you must pass through Mudumalai and Bandipur wildlife sanctuaries these sanctuaries are closed now temporarily due to forest fire check at the respective forest department to know when will it be open.

The road from bandipur to gundulpet is closed from 9 pm to 6 am because of hitting vehicles over the animal.

At mysore you can visit Brindavan Garden only at 7-8 pm light display with fountain water so plan accordingly, mysore palace tipu palace chamundeswari temple are sightseeing options.

I have booked in May Hotel Roopa at Niligiri raod mysore I have seen mixed reviews about this hotel in this site

with regards,

April and May are the peak holiday seasons at Ooty and Coonoor. So, booking your stay and transport in advance (especially since it is a special occassion) is absolutely essential.

That brings up the next point, which is, maybe you should mix your trip with a couple of days of tranquil and peaceful time on your honeymoon . . . . for most of the places of interest discussed above are 'Touristy' ones, which are bound to be crowded during peak season. Maybe a plantation stay or a homestay in a quite place for a day or two would be ideal amidst your packed schedule. . .
