As posted earlier, we (two of us) plan to visit Ooty and stay in some resort like Sherlock (where we would have good views) for 4 nights in the middle of this month. Though the resorts look great, they mostly seem to need some private vehicle to get there.
Our itinerary looks something like this:
Day 1- Land in Coimbatore (flight), get to Ooty
Day 2 - Roam around local tourist places in Ooty like Botanical garden, Doddabetta
Day 3 - Pykara and Mudumalai
Day 4 - Day trip to Coonoor (one-way by toy train)
Day 5 - Leave for Coimbatore from ooty
Given this itinerary, I want to get an idea of what is the best way to travel around?
1. Do I book a cab for this entire trip starting from Coimbatore? How much would it approximately cost? (or)
2. Should I go from and to Coimbatore by bus and hire a cab locally in Ooty? (or)
3. Can I do sightseeing within ooty by auto instead of cab? (Day 2)
Thanks for helping out!
