Welcome onboard Sailaja.

I would suggest the following plan:

Day 1:

  • Hyderabad > Bangalore > Mysuru 
  • Stay at Mysuru for the night
  • Day 1 is going to be little hectic, Start early in the morning at 5AM

Day 2:

  • Mysuru > Bandhipur > Ooty
  • Visit Mysuru place by 9AM in the morning.
  • Palace opens at 10 AM, crowd will be on lower side. 
  • Drive down to Bandhipur, do a forest safari. 
  • You can easily spot deer and elephants 
  • Once safari is done drive down to Ooty


Day 3:

Day 4:

  • Drive to Coonoor and stay at Coonoor
  • Or relax at Ooty

Day 5:

  • Drive from Coonoor to Mysuru
  • Start early in the morning, you may spot wild life en-route.

Day 6:

  • Mysuru to Coorg

Day 7:

  • Coorg local exploraiton

Day 8:

  • Coorg to Hyderabad 

I would suggest you to avoid Coorg during summer.
Temperatures are very high in Coorg

Don't visit Coorg in summer.  It is like any-other city. On the up side resorts are cheap in summer. 


Also for Ooty visit, try to reach Ooty on a weekday. It is have less crowd. 

Summer holidays + weekend is a dangerous combo. Plan accordingly. 

Bangalore to Mysuru road will have high traffic. Keep safe distance and drive cautiously.

You can refer my Travelogue for Bangalore Mysore Ooty 


Please be Noted that Bandipur is closed between 9:00 P:M and 6:00 A:M 

Gudalur route is bit safer than 36 hair pin road and also longer distance 

Expect fair amount of traffic on ghat sections and here G Maps helped us a lot where it was showing distance the on coming vehicle in opposite direction is 

Do try to Visit Himavad Gopala Swamy Betta on the Way to Ooty from Mysore  - Around 10 km from Gundlupete , it falls towards right before Bandipur forest while heading to Ooty from Mysore .

Wishing you a Happy Journey

We did Hyderabad to Coorg in one single leg around 7 years back, started early around 4 am and reached Coorg by evening before dark. Followed below route:


Hyderabad -> Anantour -> Doddaballapura (this bypass BLR and  connects you to the Mysoor Higway) ->  NICE Ring Road -> Mysuru -> Coorg


Till Doddaballapura it was a non stop drive after that we took many break for lunch and evening tea. We covered most places in Coorg, Golden Temple (a bit far), Elephant Camp (again a short drive away).

      Hyderabad to Hamsaladeevi Beach - A hidden Paradise
      After a long wait for the December trip, we kick started our vacation to the most beautiful Hamsaladeevi beach located in the Krishna district, Andhra Pradesh.
      Usually many of them skip this place due to lack of accommodation, but you will find a decent stay in Vijayawada which is around 80 kms approximately from Hamsaladeevi. It is definitely worth travelling so far to see the beauty of this Sagara Sangamam, where river Krishna meets the Bay of Bengal.
      We started at an early hour from Hyderabad and reached Vijayawada by 10 AM and checked into the OYO hotel. There are no food joints available at Hamsaladeevi beach so we packed the lunch from the hotel and headed out. Vijayawada to Hamsaladeevi drive took us 3 hours with some breaks.
      Hamsaladeevi village is 24 kms away from Avanigadda and we reached Hamsaladeevi by 3 PM. After a long drive from Hyderabad, there was an adrenaline rush gushing out to see this most beautiful place and couldn't wait to snap the sandy beach and the 'river-beach' meeting point. This point is 2 km away from the beach (From Hamsaladeevi village, beach is 4 kms) and we drove our car on the beach side shore to the port to see the confluence.

      Distance : 376 km
      Ride: Honda City
      Fuel : Petrol
      Mileage : 15 kmpl
      Hotel : OYO rooms (2000/- per night)
      Best Route 2016
      Hyderabad --> Suryapet --> Vijayawada -->Pedapulipaka --> Madduru --> Thotlavalluru --> Nimmagadda --> Avanigadda --> Nagayalanka --> Chodavaram --> Hamsaladeevi Beach
      Note: Don't take any diversions from the mentioned route else you might end up between bad conditioned roads and longer distances as you pass
