first time driving to Ooty and would like to know:
(1) Best and safest route to Ooty without entering Mysore, preferablyone that is easily pliable.
... (2) Is there any route from Srirangapatna whereby I can go to
Nanjangud and Ooty? I need details.
(3) How safe is it to drive through Masinagudi or Gundelpet
(onward/return travel) ?
