It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that India is a land of pristine surroundings and gorgeous locations that can lure every kind of traveller. The South of India, in particular, promises rich sceneries, fabled cultures and loads of activities to indulge in. Three of the most popular locations in this region include Bangalore, Mysore, and Ooty, and for good reason.
While the road trip from Bangalore to Ooty is popular, Mysore is closer to Bangalore. From Mysore, you can then head to Ooty, which is in Tamil Nadu. This makes travelling the distance less tiring and allows you to enjoy more of the sights along the way.
